- Wedding: September 2013
I need to know if any of you out there are “free-spirited” even though you’re married.
What I mean is ….. do you pick up and go on random day trips (or full blown vacations) on a whim?
Do you take random classes for the fun of it?
Does your house sometimes resemble a disaster area because you’re so wrapped up in your latest project (learning a new language, an instrument, etc)?
I am about 39 days away from getting married and I just realized that I’ve always had this “image” of married people – that they were super serious, career (or child) focused, their crazy, spontaneous days were over, that sort of thing.
But I realized that even though I’m 28 years old, I am still kind of lost. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up, I still love the thought of going on spontaneous trips, taking random (and serious) classes, etc.
My fiance agrees with me for the most part (as long as the bills are paid obviously) and he has been very supporitve of my ambitions and dreams, no matter how crazy or misdirected they may be.
But I don’t know …. for some reason I just feel like once you’re married, you’re supposed to be this serious, no-nonsense, planned/organized/perfect Mrs. Cleaver character …..
I know that’s really old fashioned and everyone is different but …. I never realized I had this picture of marriage until recently.
I still very much want to marry my fiance – I love him dearly and we’ve been through so much and support each other but …. I don’t know.
