Marriage (life)


Sometimes we can get carried away with the romance and the wedding planning, but it is important as the big day looms to make sure you are 100% sure this person is your forever person.

I know this all too painfully as when I got engaged at 19 I couldn’t have been happier. But at 22 and five months away from the wedding, I realised I had got swept away with the planning and the excitement of wedding planning was all that was keeping me with him. I made the difficult decision at that point to end it all. I’m so glad I came to the realisation I had fallen out of love before saying “I do’.

Now I’m 25 and couldn’t be more sure my fiancée is my forever man, but I still recommend to take time out to evaluate before your wedding day that you’re doing this for all the right reasons. All too often couples spend so much energy planning their wedding day they don’t realise that between getting engaged and getting married things have changed, then once they’re married and the reality of married life kicks in and all the wedding excitement has ebbed away, that they are no longer in love with their now spouse and divorce happens a year or two after marriage.

I hope none of your experience this and if any of you have as I did before getting married then I am truly sorry; but hold on to the knowledge that like me, you will find someone else who couldn’t be better for you.
