“Every dream of happiness that I have, has your face in it.” Anthony T. Hincks”
Is there a truly special person in your life? Someone who stands by you, supports you, and makes you happy?
It can take a lifetime to find something like that. You are truly fortunate.
Don’t rush into anything. Spend some time thinking whether you think your significant other is ‘The One’. Consider your life’s ambitions, hopes and dreams, and whether they are compatible with those of your significant other.
If you think he or she is ‘the One’… protect and nurture that special relationship.
There may be many reasons to declare your commitment to the whole world. Is there a difference between ‘girlfriend’ and ‘wife’? ‘Boyfriend’ and ‘husband’? For most people, there is. You make a deliberate choice to spend your life with this person. And the world takes note, (arguably) offering marital relationships more protection and respect.
“You don’t take away my choices. You are my choice.” Colleen Houck
“Some people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them,” I said. – “Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.” John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
