Kate Middleton made it cool to wait!


I waited to get married until I was 34. Not that I didn't have opportunity when I was younger, I was engaged at 20 and at 28, they thankfully didn't work out.  I'm really happy that I waited because looking back I wasn't ready to be a wife.  Not that I think everyone should wait.  I believe that everyone matures at their own rate and some people are ready very early while others need more time to ready to be married.  I just thought that this article was a great take on William and Kate waiting to get married. Especially, after the press ribbing her for being "waity Katie."


Here are a few excerpts from the article written by Cosmopolitan editor, Zoe Ruderman...


I have a confession to make: I look at wedding dresses online. A lot. I'm not in the market, but I just really enjoy virtually browsing through the gowns and imagining what I would look like in them. I'm guilty of doing the same with engagement rings, though only a handful of times. Again, not in the market. And I'd be lying if I said I've never put any thought into what song I want to use for my first dance. To anyone who doesn't know me well (or has looked over my shoulder while I'm at work browsing Gilt Bridal), I probably seem like the kind of girl who's dying to get married.


But actually, if Kris, my boyfriend of nearly four years, proposed tomorrow, I'd say no. Not because I don't love him. I do. And not because I can't imagine spending the rest of my life with him. I can. And not because I'm morally opposed to marriage or anything. I'm not. I just happen to think 27, my current age, is too young to say I do.


Which is why I love that the most famous bride of the year—and probably the century—was almost 30 when she walked down the aisle.


But watching Kate walk down the aisle, I wasn't grumbling about anything. I was giving her props. She was making it cool to get married at 29.


Let me be clear. I don't think 27 is too young for all people and that every single woman should hold off till 29. I have lots of friends who got hitched younger than that, couples I think were totally ready and will be together for a looong time (shout out to Jess and Corey!). And it's not like I go to weddings where the bride and groom are in their early or mid-twenties and scoff at their decision. It's just that I can't relate to their decision. But I can relate to Kate.
