When this man feels guilty, he asks Reddit:
I (35m) used to be married to my high school sweetheart "Kelly" (35f). We got married after undergrad and overall I would say that we were really happy.
The biggest conflict that I would say we had was the topic of children. Not the idea of actually having them but when.
I've always wanted to be a dad and wanted to have my kids while I was still young enough to run around with them while they were kids and have a good adult relationship with them once they got older.
Kelly brought up a lot of good points about needing to get married, living fully on our own, and being out of debt first.
For about five years I worked a job I had no passion for solely because of the large paycheck and I was able to nearly wipe out our debt completely (we didn't have a lot to begin with in the first place).
