I am part of a growing trend in the United States. I will be a first time bride over 40. I am so proud of that. However, over the years, I was often told that I wasn’t going to get married because studies revealed that women in their 40s had a better chance at getting struck by lightning then get married for the first time. Whatever. I never paid attention to that stuff or people who said it.
One reason (actually there are many) I admire being a first time bride over 40 is that I have explored and experienced a lot. I am able to proudly check off many items on my bucket list, and because of that, I believe I am a better person and will therefore be a better wife.
But before someone says something, I am not going to talk about being married because I am not, and that would be just silly. I am going to say that since first time “older” brides are increasing, I feel really good that I am a member of this glorious “Sisterhood.”
Hey, by the way, I am looking for a broom to jump on my big day. Can someone tell me where I might be able to buy one designed for weddings?
