I am 19 and recently married. In two weeks I will be relocating with my new husband. I do not believe that the phrase "stressed out to the max" can even describe how I have been feeling the past few days: With being informed of the cost of moving, how long it can take, and everything and anything that can come with owning a new home.
My grandmother was 18 when she was married and I never once heard her complain about anything like the problems that I have been experiencing recently. I'm lost and feel like I can't quite figure out what to do. Any advice?
Dear Needing help,
Congratulations on your recent marriage.
As for the trouble that you are having now, it goes with the package - the wedding - the move for packing, and all the rest that goes with it. I think that your new husband should be helping you out.
Moving is a job for 2 and even your family and friends should help. I know. I went through it myself. I moved to a new city with my husband and when he went back to work after out honeymoon I was completely alone. So I got a map of the city and everyday I went to a different part of the city so that I would learn about my surroundings. Then I unpacked slowly and found a place for everything. When my husband came home he helped me and we had a lot of fun deciding where things should go. Then he helped me put together dinner because I could not cook.
You are quite young to have gotten married, but now that you did you have to think like a young married lady and not like a teenager -- that is gone.
I have told you what I did and you can follow my plan if you like and you soon will get it all together.
Good luck and much happiness.
