Not a criticism, but an odd comment my mother said when I turned 21. She said that now that I was 21, she didn't have to pay for my wedding.
Okaaay. Now, I realize that a parent isn't obligated to contribute to wedding expenses regardless of age, and frankly she was so cheap that the complaints wouldn't have been worth the little bit of money. However, I didn't have a steady boyfriend, much less a potential fiance. Second, would she really have wanted me to marry before 21 years old?
