There is no right or wrong, as we are all different people, with different sets of circumstances. The only thing that matters is that our circumstances lead us to where we are meant to be.
Broadly speaking, the more competitive a heterosexual male finds his local dating pool, the earlier he's apt to take a knee. Utah's ratio is nearly even, and states with similar ratios -- or states with fewer women than men -- generally see grooms suiting up closer to their mid-20s.
Whether it is the delicious newborn, the energetic toddler, the potentially stinky middle school kid or even the dramatic high school one, a parent is physically and mentally drained by the end of each day. Consequently, I'm not entirely sure why sex is considered a taboo topic when no parent seems to be having much of it.
Many couples choose to do premarital counseling before their wedding, especially if they are religious. My then-boyfriend Dan and I did something a little different. We took a premarital counseling course before Dan even proposed.

Holy hell, the man clips coupons! It was at that point that the light went on; as though I had been seeing only in black and white for my entire life. Barbie must be some type of sexual savant. Her vagina must be magical.
We need to relearn what helping really means, and what we actually need and want from each other, and for ourselves -- the presence and love that we truly crave.
