23 Things To Do Instead Of Getting Engaged Before You’re 23

Love is a beautiful thing and to live is even greater! Learn to love yourself, flaws and all. Know what you enjoy and who you are. What direction is your life going in and what do you feel your purpose is? When you settle down, know in your heart that you have got all of your desires out (or at least most of them). And not just sexual, but conquestial desires also. What do you want to obtain? What do you want to be when you grow up? Your younger years are made for those opportunities, when you have the most thirst for life. When you share your life with someone, it should be just that, sharing. Not 20/80 or 60/40 but 50/50. Add to each other lives and also know that you’re ready AND not that you just want to be ready. The partner that you choose should be worthy of the love you have to offer, and at 23 a lot of men and women aren’t quite rounded yet to be open to give and receive real love. You only live once and you die alone, so make the most of the chances you are given.

Oh wait.

The divorce rate for young couples is more than twice the national average. Divorce is no longer a staple in a midlife crisis, but rather, something that SEVENTEEN Magazine should probably be printing on. Headlines could read,

“How to budget for your prom AND your wedding in the same year!”

“What’s HOT: Kids raising Kids.”

“Why your Mom doesn’t really…
