    LL - Should We Elope?

    Today's letter is awesome.  "I don't really want to get married, but since we're going to be somewhere tropical, maybe we should just elope.  Everybody wants a really big wedding but me, but I don't know if I'm ready for a big wedding - I'm totally ready to elope, though, because I'm going to be in the right place."

    Don't get me wrong.  Eloping is a fine option.  I think about it often.  But eloping because you're going to be on vacation already?  Really?

    Wow, sounds like she isn't into marriage but has convinced herself that it's the right thing to do by taking online "are you ready to get married" quizzes that she's calling "pre-marital guides."

    I could be wrong, but I feel like marriage is not the right thing to do if you're not ready and/or don't want to.

    I read that one too and thought it was ridiculous.  To get married because you happen to be going on vacation is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.  LL advice was good, get engaged and wait a year.  But I'm sure people do stupider things.

    I don't know, Trex.  I mean, the more I think about it, the better it sounds.

    "Hey AwesomeGuy, you know how we'll be in Phoenix for Thanksgiving this year, visiting your parents?  We should really get married while we're there!"  Sealed

    if you have to ask whether or not you should elope, you shouldn't. The whole point of eloping is not asking anyone's permission, you're both in love and dead-set on getting married righthisminute or ASAP.
