    I think I've just now come to terms with the fact that I'm going to be married by next summer. Not that I'm not happy about it...it just didn't seem like something that I would do.I'm always very cautious and rational. When I entered college and saw everyone from high school I...

    My fiancé and I began dating

    when I was only fifteen. I adored him and knew he was the person I was going to marry even back then. We've been through our ups and downs which has only made our relationship stronger. He is a wonderful man who I greatly appreciate and love.

    Legally (but not traditionally.

    ..no "popping the question" or **** like that) for a little over a year. Emotionally and spiritually, we are already married. We call ourselves husband and wife (though we permit you to refer to us in engagement terms if that's a little too weird for you).

    Yeah, I'm engaged to be married,

    so I've been thinking about writing my own wedding vows. Here's what I've been thinking: Do you, Livvie, claim this man as your personal property? So, umm, yeah, I think that sounds good. Who wouldn't want to marry me?
