Catholic magazine and young adult dating advice (see our special section) wouldn't seem to go together naturally, but I assure you that our relationship content comes from editors at all stages of life.It's not just lectures from your parents here (though they probably are right, even if you don't want to admit it now).I should have gotten married in my early 20s like you did!Tina: Yeah, I joke that I was a child bride, but I don’t think my marriage is any better than those of my friends who married later. Tina: We were good little Catholic students who met at our university’s Newman Center.Tina: I mean, looking at "Don’t wait for marriage," the author describes my marriage to a T, but I’m hesitant to agree with everything he says. I think that’s why the article struck a nerve with so many singles surveyed—dating is hard enough without someone telling you that you’re an old maid! You have a fresh slate, more opportunities to focus on hobbies, faith, friends. With a toddler at home, I don’t get to do any of that! And while I do want children (like your cute little boy! I think it’s very healthy that people our age are thinking about why and when they should get married.

Working on the September young adult issue was quite personal for many of us at the office: Most the articles are about relationships.It made us think about our own relationships--in their various stages.We weren’t on the same page—let alone in the same state!Tina: So it’s actually good that you didn’t get married.

My fellow editor Tina Herman and I had a lot of fun putting together the editors' note for September, so I wanted to share with you our own personal perspective on relationships, from two different places in life: Megan: Well, I’m single.

My boyfriend and I broke up, and according to "Don’t wait for marriage" (pages 18-22), I’m destined to be a spinster or divorced because the best marriages start when you’re young.
