all they see is age
 
when we got together at age 14/15 people said it wouldnt last
her parents hate me and tried to keep us apart
we stayed together

when i had to move away from her for 3 months later that year people said it wouldnt last
they said we would fall out of love in that time
we stayed together

when we said we love each other people said it wouldnt last
they said we dont know the meaning of the word
we stayed together

when she fell pregnant at age 16/17 people said it wouldnt last
they said we would not be able to cope
we stayed together

when she had the abortion with that pregnancy people said it wouldnt last
they said the stress would tear us apart
we stayed together

when she fell pregnant again age 17/18 people said it wouldnt last
they said we would be able to handle it
we stayed together

when she refused another abortion people said it wouldnt last
they said this would push us apart
we stayed together

when we moved in together people said it wouldnt last
they said we would drive each other mad
we stayed together

when we got engaged people said it wouldnt last
they said we wernt serious and would change our mind
we got married
till death do us part
and that is what it did

I am 18 and we were married for a day under 5 weeks when she died. we were never taken seriously as a couple because of our age, not even at the hospital we were not treated the same as the older married couples. she was my wife and being young does not stop me loving her as much as older couples.

i admit if things were different we may not have got married quite so young but we know she was dying and wanted to get married before it happened.

Dear Liamandcarter

I'm glad that you didn't listen to anyone else!!! Noone else can judge what you are experiencing and just because you are young does not mean that you are capable of loving any less than if you are older.

You and your wife were blessed with the time that you had together and I hope that those people who kept saying it wouldn't last were there for you when she died.

Sending you many blessings for your journey
Ruby
