“When you know, you know,” is what many people have said in response to my sudden marriage, but only after they’ve sputtered out: “What? Really? You’re joking.”
It caught everyone by surprise.
I called my mom five minutes after signing a document cementing one of the biggest decisions of my life.
“Hi, what are you doing?” I asked my mom. Sitting with my step-dad? Perfect.
“So, I sort of just got married,” I told her.
She was surprisingly calm, considering she didn’t remember the name of her now-son-in-law.
