I'm 29 years old and I'm married for three years now.
My husband and I dedided not make a big, expensive event out of the wedding.
We told our parents that we weren't at home the next week because we are going on holiday. What they didn't know was that we were on a trip to the U.S., having it's height in the wedding.
I know that money isn't important concernig a wedding but it was about 6000 Euro not 10000 or more.
At first our families were a little bit dissapointed because they wern't invited, but they finally were all happy with us. They all liked our photos and stories.
Some people say a marriage changes everything, but I think that's nonsense. Maybe it was that way in the earlier days.
Our marrige didn't change anything in our lives, except my last name.
I believe that if you really love each other a marriage can last forever.
