Isn’t this the big question we ask ourselves all the time when marriage is either brought up or roaming around in your head? Honestly no one can answer the question if he/she is “the one” for you.
Being married twice myself I put my foot down and said never again. In my head I believed people changed to dramatically from when you date to when you are now married. It appeared once you put a ring on your finger it was a sign that someone owned you.
Looking back I could see the error of my ways and now I know what I had with my previous marriages wasn’t being in love. It was just exciting times that you wanted to last. A wedding band doesn’t make that happen.
To be blunt I had no idea of what being “in love” was until I met the person in my life today. She puts as much into our relationship as I do if not more. The feeling of being loved (not lusted after) is an amazing feeling. She is amazing with my two boys. I can finally say after searching for love for so long that I have actually found it.
Now comes the questions.
I watched my ex-father in law die of rectal cancer. He went through a living hell on what hospitals did in effort to help him. What was amazing was what his wife did because he couldn’t. Changing his bag of waste, cleaning the sores and horribleness that existed on his bottom. Find new ways for him to eat food that would stay in his stomach. Getting up with him each time he got sick from the Chemo treatments. Taking care of the 3rd degree burns in his mouth. All of these things that you agree to do for the one you love when you say “I do” in sickness and health, take you to be my lawfully wedded partner in life until no end.
