I wasn’t going ignore the idea of marriage just because I was under the age of twenty-five. Sure, some would agree that twenty-five is pretty young, but I couldn’t let that stop me from pursuing the man I had made a mark on my heart. He had everything I looked for in a best friend and a boyfriend. He was kind, loving, funny, and would do anything for me.
2. Life is more fulfilling with each other.
Life as a single girl was pretty awesome, but it couldn’t compare to living life with the person that I could spend every second of everyday with. I’m not saying marriage should be everyone’s end goal, but I am saying that it was the right choice for us.
3. We were mature enough to handle it.
Marriage is a big commitment, and I wouldn’t encourage anyone to embark on this incredible journey without first making sure they are mature enough to handle it. Maturity will play a big role in the way individuals respond to trials, tribulations, and the successes that life throws at your relationship. We've together been through more as a couple then most adults have been through their entire life. Age doesn't equal maturity and visa versa.
4. We had the same goals and dreams.
There is nothing more encouraging for a relationship than finding someone who has the same goals and dreams. It's not necessarily if we have the same hobbies, it's more about values. To find someone with such a big heart to me was so rare and refreshing.
5. We wanted to do life together.
My life was great before I met my husband, but it turned out to be even greater once we started spending it together. Not only did we have each other to share experiences with, but we felt bigger opportunities open up once we started doing things as a team rather than by ourselves.
6. We are madly in love with each other.
Not much more to explain here. We both found ourselves madly in love with each other. What more can you ask for when it comes to marriage? We realized that we were willing to do just about anything for each other, and we didn’t care what others thought about our relationship. True love will withstand the test of time. Our desire to live selflessly would be the foundation in which we build our marriage upon.
