by G. A., Abington, MA



Being married at eighteen is a lot harder than I thought it would be. Trying to go to school and at the same time work to pay the rent is very difficult. It is not at all like going out with someone. They are always there. You have no privacy. Your privacy is now our privacy. You fight a lot more than before, because you are always together. It is something like having another father or mother, because you have to tell them where you are going and when you will return.

But then it has its good points. You can go out and not tell your parents where you are going. You always have someone to eat with. You are never lonely. You always have someone to talk to and to be with. You don't have to call someone to talk. You can just sit in your room and talk to your husband.
