Today’ topic is WHY DID I GET MARRIED?
There are many reasons why Scott and I got married. The very first reason was (and is) that I loved him and wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. From date number 1 to engagement was only 5 weeks. Why the rush? Well, Scott is 9½ years older than me and was in his early 30’s at the time. I was 21 years old and just getting ready to graduate from college. We just knew that it was a blessed thing to be married to each other.
I can’t tell you Scott’s reasons for getting married, but I can tell you mine. I know I didn’t want to live with him without the commitment of marriage vows said before God and our families. I wasn’t going to sleep with him without those vows. I knew that I deserved better. I had waited 21 years to give myself to my husband and I wasn’t going to compromise that gift without being married.
I think the biggest reason why we got married was eloquently said by Billy Crystal, who played Harry Burns in my favorite movie When Harry Met Sally.
“I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

Fawn Weaver, the founder of the Happy Wives Club wrote a book about the best marriage secrets the world has to offer. They say the book is like “Eat, Pray, Love meets The 5 Love Languages.” I say the book is inspiring. You can grab a copy and read some free chapters here.
