Oh Mona Lisa Vito from the movie, My Cousin Vinny. What a character you are. There is a scene where she stomps on the floor and yells that her biological clock is ticking and that she’s never going to get married. Well this subject has been buzzing around me more and more lately. Babies and Marriage. But I have to admit my clock just ISN'T ticking yet.
Don’t get me wrong I want to get married and I want to have a lil child of my own one day but I’m honestly not in any rush. How my life has run I’ve been lucky enough to find a good man who treats me right and has fallen in love with me and I’ve been dating him now for about 5 months almost 6 but I’m ready in my life to enjoy it. To take day by day seeing him, making homemade tacos and pizza, hosting a lil game night, meeting our families, sleeping over each others’ houses all spooned together, and I’m perfectly comfortable with that. But the world seems to have other plans.
Two sets of CJ’s couple friends have been dating off and on for 5 or so years and the subject of marriage and babies are always topics of conversation. CJ has been asking me many questions sort of spawned after seeing these couples and then things like our age difference of 4 years comes into play and he may be ready for more life altering decisions and I’m content where we are.
Nothing is going to happen tomorrow or next week but I’m cool with having kids somewhere in my late 20’s. I just turned 25, I don’t think that’s unreasonable. CJ however is realizing he will be in his 30’s by then. He’s 28 now turning 29 in January. I don’t know if this is actually a problem that might have to come to the surface in our relationship. I have a feeling CJ’s clock is ticking WAY faster than mine.
I’m not ready to have to baby yet, but when someone will make a comment like “You have such great Child-Bearing Hips” my mind goes into overdrive and I’m like “HUH?!?!?!”. I almost will shut down a lil bit and are flustered for a few. How do you respond to something like that? But my silent response is of course not a good one. I have to say something but I’m at a loss. I’m just not ready yet.
In your travels of relationships, How long in a relationship do you think is good time to get married/and have babies?
When did your Clock start ticking?
