- Wedding: July 2013
I want to share with those of you who care to listen, my story. I’ll keep it short, as short as I can. I often perused the waiting section of the wedding bee, in secracey. Then one day I asked to be on the waiting list, and months later, I asked to be taken off. My significant other and I had our ups and downs, in regards to marriage. We have the best relationship. We make eachother laugh, take care of one another and love so hard it hurts. Our biggest downfall was our differing outlook on marriage. My SO and I have been together for 5 1/2 years. We have shared our home for 4 1/2 of those years. We are everything a married couple is, except married. The past 5 1/2 years have not been easy. I have cried, I have wanted to give up on him and us. I have been jealous and bitter, angry and emotional. But in the end….it is him I pick. I don’t want a husband, I want him to be my husband. I’ve listened to both sides, from caring friends and family.
But in the end it was our decision how we wanted to spend the rest of our life. I wanted him and he wanted me. As the days went by, I stopped obsessing over the fact that our relationship didnt have a real label and focused on enjoying what we had. I must admit, I was fully confident in his love for me, his committment and our future. I chose our love, unconditionally.
Last week, my fiance proposed. I am so thankful and happy. He explained everything he wants is what I call marriage. I hope to learn together what the true meaning of marriage is. I trust that our patience, devotion and persistence does just that.
