Wedding Fever

BYU has it.
Typically, if you don't have a bf or gf by this point in the semester, plan on being single for the rest of the semester.  Get over it!  Seriously, I decided to count yesterday how many times I heard the word marriage, engaged, or phrases such as "so...are you dating anyone?" "DO YOU WANT TO SEE MY RING????" In just 1 minute, I heard over 20 such conversations.  Really???  What if we were putting that much emphasis on being a kind, Christ-like person?  What if we spent all the time worrying that we were never going to find that special someone into service hours or temple work?  There are sooo many better things to be fussing over.  I think that the people that ARE putting their time into productive things are the ones that content with their dating life.  Don't get me wrong, I think that marriage is a wonderful thing, I am just sick and tired of weddings!

I couldn't agree with you more. A lot of people lose focus on things that really matter. If we do all the right things and be good followers of Christ then everything else will fall into place. I am so tired of the marriage pressure I feel here!!

Ahh this is definitely one feeling that I'm not fond of. What makes me sad is that when I look at some of my best friends who are 22 or 23, I feel like they're SO OLD to be not married, which is such a joke, because that is really SO YOUNG.
