Happy, Excited and Terrified

Monday, January 19, 2009

A colleague of mine has just announced her engagement to her boyfriend of four years. They are to be wed in April of this year. Despite my misgivings about marriage, hearing the news made me so happy for her, for both of them. I asked her how she feels about it. She replied, “Happy, excited and terrified – all at the same time.”

A good, loving relationship may not always have to lead to marriage. But for others, it does. Marriage, for them, is the culmination of what they have right now as well as the start of something even better.

a poor idea of some women that marriage is a fairy tale with those nice gowns, shoes and what-not but after a year or so they tend to end the relationship. it is oh so true that marriage entails a lot of sacrifices, qualms and misunderstandings but at the same time it's an exhilarating feeling...

the "and they lived happily ever after" part also comes true. sometimes.
