Lol yes indeed. I will keep you all updated on what I find out but for now I recommend to everyone not to get married before the age of 25 and never buy a car together unless your sure things will work. Lol

I got married at 22, my wife being 18 at the time. We just celebrated 3 years. It doesn't work for everyone, that's for sure.

Come Nov 7 I will have been married 10 years, so I was 22 when I got married(my wife is two years younger). I don't think its age, I think its maturity, its much harder to live with someone than just date them. Compromise is hard.

As to the car, I would just fix the mechanical components, forget the body damage and drive the thing all messed up.

If you're gonna go that route you can remove the front fender and beat the dent out yourself. It won't be perfect but it'll look 100x better.
