I don’t just want to marry you to wake up to you every day or be with you forever. I want to marry you because marriage is hard, raising kids is hard, debt and bills and relatives and jobs and blending two families and lives is hard and you’re the person l want to go through good and bad times with. Life is never going to magically be all butterflies and rainbows just because you marry your soul mate. Life is hard and I want to marry you and love you every day through every bump in the road. I want to marry you to be your rock through every curve ball and to look at you when everything else is falling apart. I don’t want to marry you because it’s cute and exciting. I want to marry you because it’s real and hard work and a lifetime of ups and downs and with you it’s worth every second of it.
