By ChoiceI was alone for years by choice.
I had experienced a marriage that didn't go well.
Before it was completely over my mother was harassing me to date and get married again.
I wasn't interested.
I am happy that I spent the time to be alone. Being with somebody just to be with somebody isn't how I wanted to spend my time.
Even after I found the person I wanted to spend my life with, I took my time. I wasn't about to be rushed into anything. There is no time clock, no stopwatch for me to get married. If I don't get married again until I'm 95 years old, then I'm fine with that. The man that I am with knows how I feel about marriage and he knows how I feel about him.
When I marry again, it will be for life and love not out of desperation for companionship.
