  • Wedding: September 2016

Yup! My brother was SHOCKED to discover that I am happy to have marriage on the table. He had always figured that I was a chronic commitment-phobe, and used that phrase to console a friend of his I dated once. I have had many exes who had marriage on the brain when I was in no rush. It just figures that now I’m the one who is dying to get married with a partner who wants to take his sweet time!

@inamorata:  Maybe you just know that he’s someone you want to be with long term? It may also have to do with your friends- if most of them are married it changes your perception of normality. Nothing bad about that, I mean I’m not saying you’re trying to keep up or anything. I just think it can change your own attitude about it.

@inamorata:  we definitely have some similarities. I was 32 when I realized I wanted to marry my SO, and we also don’t want kids. we had been dating for 2 years. 

the thing is, it hit me like a punch in the face. I was standing in line at the grocery store and I saw the most gorgeous ring ever on the cover of a magazine. suddenly I thought “I want that” and then, “I want to get married! WTF?” before then I wasn’t even the slightest bit interested in marriage, weddings, rings, or anything. 

I guess when it somes to certain people, they meet a truly teriffic person and it blindsides them out of nowhere!
