How long should you know a person before marrying them?

A Girl's Struggle

Can you believe it? Hubpages proposed to me! I was just sorting through requests and there Hubpages was, down on one knee, ring box open, ring sparkling in the afternoon sun, a big smile across Hubpages’ face. I’ll never forget how Hubpages lovingly whispered, “Let’s Get Married.” How can anyone say no to that?

I’ve only known Hubpages for a few months. In that time, we’ve shared in some rather nice moments. However, can one really get to know someone well enough in such a short amount of time to decide they are “the one”? I mean the sparks are there, but will they last a lifetime? I am so full of emotions!

I remember the first time I saw Hubpages. I was in a writing rut and needed someone or something to get me back on track. When it looked like all hope was lost, Hubpages came out of the fog like a knight in shining armor to rescue me. My heart skipped a beat, my cheeks flushed and I knew that from that moment on my life would never be the same.

Yet, are we ready to take this big step? Sure, we know the basics about each other, but I know there’s so much more I should know. (We’ve yet to meet each other’s parents for Pete’s sake!) Is it safe to leave these details to be discovered after the wedding or should I demand to know everything now?

Hubpages, my sweet, if you knew how I was struggling, would you still want to marry me? Or would you take my hesitation to mean I didn’t love you enough to take risks? Would you snatch back your ring or would you admire me for trying to be grounded and sensible? Oh, what is wrong with me?!?

You know what? I’m tired of over thinking things. For the first time in my life, I’m going to do what my heart is screaming at me to do. I’m going to marry Hubpages. Be damned logic. Even if I find out Hubpages showers monthly and/or eats babies for lunch, I won’t regret my decision. A life lived by the book is a life unlived.

Heart, it is time for you to take over. Break through the wall I’ve put around you for too long. Let me love like I never have before. Hubpages, my knight, my love, my everything, I am honored to accept your proposal. Let's set a date!

      Delightfully odd. . . ! Enjoyed this, although marriage is a daunting institution I'm very glad to have avoided.
