First comes love, then comes marriage

I have recently been thinking about marriage a lot lately. Mainly because I am engaged and am wondering when that will be. However, there is no rush and I still have some things I need to understand before jumping into something as major as marriage. I’ve recently started reading this book Thing I Wish I’d Know Before We Got Married. Now it’s my turn to share what I’ve learned with you guys.

I Wish I Had Known….

That being in love is not an adequate foundation for building a successful marriage. When I look at my fiance I know I am in love. I’ve never felt this way about anyone and after 6 years together I still get the tingles and warm sensation of being in love. This is just step one. You can’t have a sundae with only a cherry. You come to a point in the relationship where your differences start to emerge and discover if you really love the person. This is where you discover that love is not the only foundation to a happy marriage.

Love is an emotional and obsessive experience. Love is amazing with the right person. When you find it, hold on for dear life because the ride is amazing.

Over the next few weeks I will dive deeper into this book and share more with you. Keep reading to find out more things I want to know before jumping into marriage.
