Better off eloping?
Like lots of girls, I dream of having the perfect wedding. I imagine my dream dress, the ceremony, the music, etc. It's a silly fantasy, and it's all in good fun when I'm bored.
But when I really think seriously about getting married, I think about just eloping with a few witnesses (or none). So many members of my family don't like or hold grudges with each other, it'd be way too awkward or even risky to have a nice, traditional wedding.
Even worse, I don't think I'm even going to be able to get married at all. My family is full of divorces and separations, and I'm afraid I'll be headed there too if I get married.
