This thought just occured to me last night. When I think about my upcoming wedding, the part that excites me the most is the vows. Looking into my true love’s eyes and telling him in front of our close friends and family, that I will love him forever. I can hardly wait.
When I think back to marriage #1, I wasn’t thinking about that part, I was thinking of the wedding itself. The details, the colors, the dress. I was quite a bit younger then, but I just feel like this time around, I’m more excited for the actual action of marrying him than the wedding itself.

I know what you mean! When I was 27 it was all about the wedding details.
At this point the wedding is just a means to get to the good part – the marriage. I can’t wait!

@GroovyHippieChick: Exactly! Love the pic, btw. I have a Kermit tattoo, and in high school I wanted to be Janice.

I’m surprising Fiance with a specially made Kermit boutonieere. One of the things that we bonded over was our love of the Muppets 🙂

I knew because I just did. :b
Of course, now that I’ve been through a cheating spouse and divorce, I really never want to go through that again. Divorce SUCKS!

Hes completly the oppisite of my ex husband lol. hes caring, respectful, patient and kind. he understands me completly and is there even when i dont need words. I trust him with everything, hes truly my best friend. our relationship is a partnership and not one sided, we dont always agree but we respect each others differences. The number one thing is that he LOVES my children…they are his and noone will or can tell him anything different. he has changed diapers and done midnight feedings even in the beginning when i never would have asked. hes loving and hardworking. hes everything my ex was not. when i look at him i see us 50 years from now, 70 years from now. with my ex i couldnt. I married the first time because we had a baby, i stayed for as long as i did because we had kids, im marrying the man of my dreams for love. we have similar interests but also are individuals, he lets me let loose and go out with the girls and i let him go out with the guys…he can kick back with a beer around a campfire but doesnt have an issue with me kicking back with a glass of wine and watch wedding shows. hes activily involved in my childrens lives, he never misses a game, a dance recital, a drs apointment( i have a child with special needs), a therapy session, a school meeting, or a christmas program. his relationship with them is almost as important as his relationship with me…all these reasons and more is why i know i picked the right one this time 🙂

Same with me!! I can’t wait to say those vows to the man I love and really, 100% mean them this time. I can’t wait to look in his eyes and say those words!
Last time was all about the details for me too… the dress, the favours, the chair colours, you name it! This time I couldn’t care less about any of that stuff. I just want to be married to him.

@givemecouture: I was all about the details last time too. This time all I care about is us!

Because when he is not the right one, nine times out of ten, it’s because there were some red flags but we were either too ‘in love’ or ‘too pressured’, and ignored the signs, and still went through with it. For me this time around, I am seeing and knowing the complete man, with not only my heart but also my mind, and I love and respect what I see and know.
