Getting Married

He waited for me.  I had trust issues.  I worked on them, and the night before the wedding I told him "you're not marrying me for my great body because I don't have one,"you're not marrying me for my money, because I don;t have any", and "you aren't marrying me because I'm pregnant, because our daughter is already here, so I know you're marrying me because with me is where you most want to be."  That was 33 years ago.  Good enough to have answered the questions in advance.

Well said, capitolgirl.

I like nanasixboys's raft analogy but want to stress the importance of holding onto eachother and not allowing the waves to take us off course; keeping barnacles from clinging to our foundation, not allowing all manner of detritus to wash over us and deposit itself randomly, and preventing the incessant circling of predators threatening and trying to limit us. PLUS appreciating the dark and the light and the hope that rises in us as we take in the natural beauty of the shining horizon.

Marriage is many years together on a raft. Everything in the sea around you can and might have some effect on you. You are the only ones in control of your lives, and your time together can be frightening, or one hell of an adventure. .



kayiman, do not worry, Go through life being your sweet, easygoing self. The harder you try to find someone, the less likely you are to find her. If she is out there, she will arrive when you are least looking for her, and the most receptive.

Wow! congratulation,

I am 34 and not yet married. I just do not want to get hurt. I need a lady that is mature than me. Do you think i am crazy? Your story is great.

Keep up the satifying work! We have four grown children and 8 grandsons.

what a great story.

My wife and I have been together since we were 16. Now we are 29 and 3 children later.

we met eachother when we had nothing only to build everything together.
