@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: I want to marry Adam because I’m willing to give up everything for him. But, he loves me so much that he’d never ask me to.

What a great question.  I never thought about marriage before Fiance.  I was never the girl who dreamt about her dream wedding and played dress up, etc.  I just took one day at a time.  It’s funny though because almost as soon as I met Fiance, I knew he was the one.  I couldn’t stop thinking about marriage.  I knew that my life would not be complete without him.  I never expressed these thoughts and feelings with him though.  I figured if it was meant to be, then he’d take it into his own hands and on his own time.  Now I couldn’t be any happier and I’m so excited to be called his wife.

Am I supposed to pick one? If so I would go with one. Its the fact that I really found my equal. We really enjoy eachothers company. I know he will always be there for me, even when times get tough. We have been through so much together that it has just made us closer. I cant imagine going through life without him. He is my best friend. My really dorky best friend!! He doesnt judge when I dance around or talk in stupid voices. He is just my perfect match.

I love to have adventures.  Some of them are big: moving to rural Japan for two years.  Some of them are small: trying out the new Vietnamese restaurant down the street.  I have discovered that no matter how fantastic my adventures are, they are always better with him.  Marriage and starting a family together is quite possibly the greatest adventure of all, so of course I want to do it with him.  He’s sometimes the captain and sometimes just my first mate on our great adventure ship of life, but he’s always the best partner I could have, and I know our ship can weather any storm as we sail toward exotic and exciting lands.

…Also, he thinks my dorky pirate metaphors are awesome.

Awesome question… and such a good thing to think about as I wait!

P is the most supportive person I have ever met.  When I dropped everything to go back to school, he didn’t bat an eyelash. 

We are silly together, which is very important.  I know for a fact I can be myself around him and I won’t be judged for it.  (I like to dance and sing about pointless things… a la that show “The New Girl”.)

We genuinely enjoy each others company.  When he wants to work out or go fishing, he doesn’t want the guys around… He wants me. I can’t think of any person I would rather hang out with than him.  We truly are best friends.  

I have never seen my relationships come to fruition… I always break up or back out (which maybe is something I probably need to examine). He is the only person I can see spending my life with, and when that time comes, having children with.  He is such a good father to his son, and it makes me love him more for it.  

OKAY!  Enough mush-mush! 🙂

I could copy and paste your first 2 answers for myself

1. I had never EVER met anyone who I thought, “Wow, this guy I could really imagine marrying and spending my life with.” I thought marriage just wasn’t for me. Then I met him and it was like my soul said, “oh! I see. It’s like that.” lol I think I would have been a happy spinster with my best friend, our big hosue, and our cats, but that’s not what life had in mind.

2. We are really similar, have the same goals and beliefs, and marriage just seemed like the next obvious step. We knew we loved each other and wanted the same things from life and not getting married would have seemed like playing games.

The meaning of married life?

1. I found someone I wanted to spend FOREVER with.

2. The committment itself is the most wonderful and sometimes one of the most challenging things I’ve ever been blessed with. And because of that, it is incredibly satisfying.

3. The companionship.

4. To have a whole family.

5. I spent my whole life dreaming of marriage. It hasn’t disappointed.

I got married because I believe in the institution.  It’s very conventional but I think it works.

I married my husband because he is just so calm and steady, while I don’t have one single uncomplicated thought in my head.  Ever. It’s all drama and angst and he all he has to do is sit there like a Buddha.  And it settles me right down:)
