You’ve spent years with your significant other, meeting their family, attending family gatherings both happy and sad, going on dates, relaxing at home and everything in between and you’ve had blast. But, that day comes where he pops the question and with pure excitement you say YES! You’re now a bride-to-be with lots of planning to do! This is the happiest time of your life thus far.
As the days, weeks and hey maybe even years go by, you start questioning if this is the right decision. This is a tough situation because no one can help you. These are your own feelings and let’s face it, people may have an opinion about your relationship, but you are the only one who knows what goes on behind closed doors. It’s perfectly okay to take some time and think this through. After all, this is a big life decision.
I am engaged and have been for the past 2 years and just recently started planning my wedding. I’ll admit, I have had to take a minute and think, am I making the right choice? And then it hit me…if he’s the one I picture my life with in 10, 20, 30 years from now, how could he not be the one? I feel safe and secure with him. He makes me laugh and truthfully as much as I’d like to stay mad at him sometimes, I just can’t.
Now, don’t think of what anyone else has to say because this is your choice and only yours. Does the man you’re with make you laugh? Do you know that he would do anything for you? Is he your best friend? And, the most important question, do you love him? If you answered yes to these questions than most likely you’re marrying the right person. Just because he’s the right person does not mean you’re not going to fight and hate each other at times and have him tell you how dramatic you can be. Remember, there’s a fine line between love and hate. You will most certainly have you’re arguments but the people who argue with the most, are the one’s you love the most.
So, listen to someone with experience with this, embrace the most overwhelming and exciting time of your life, embrace all the good and yes, even the bad. I tell you this because in five or ten years, you both can look back and laugh at the time where you almost called off the wedding because he didn’t want to help you with picking out which florist you would use. You’ll laugh, look at each other and fall in love all over again because you remembered that you even though you once had your doubts, you made the right choice. And throughout it all, you’re happy and that’s what matters most in life. Happiness.
