When I was much younger I wanted to get married. I thought I wouldn’t be complete without having a husband.
And when I became a single parent I realized that I didn’t need a man to make my life complete. I had my daughter.
However, though I do love my child I always felt like something special (outside of motherhood) was missing.
I missed being a couple, holding hands, spending the holidays with someone special. Then I wondered if marriage was the right thing for me? I have seen many couples bicker over the silliest of things, complaints complaints oh my GOD the complaints!
I began to doubt whether or not marriage was the right thing for me. I didn’t want to be with someone who saw me as more of an obligation, duty….whatever happened to couples simply appreciating each other..not taking the other for granted? Because it seems to me once you say the “I Do’s” then you start hearing the “I won’t…I don’t…” just so much negativity connected.
Makes me wonder if these people truly appreciate this Holy Sacrament. Do they see getting married as simply part of the life process and not as something so special, and unique for that couple?
Why get married if you honestly feel like you might not be able to make it work? Not realizing that loving someone IS work!!!
Well, it is but you can still have fun while committed. It’s all about your perspective, your attitude…loving the person despite their faults and finding ways to make it through this life together as friends, lovers, confidants…..
Marriage is right for me when it’s with the person I choose to be my life partner, time traveler…he will be my equal, best friend, my confident, and lover.
