47. Get married.
That’s right. Yours truly has getting married on my bucket list. Being the wonderful cynic that I am, I doubt that it’s going to happen anytime soon. Besides if it does happen I have a pretty high criteria that must be met prior to that even happening. I mean, it would be pretty unfair of me to just agree to marry the first boy who proposes just because they think it would “work.”
I want to marry the right person. When I get married, I’m only doing it once. I’m only walking down the aisle in the white dress once so I better do it right the first time. I want to marry my best friend. I know, how cliché. I just want to marry the guy I can tell everything to. A man who is committed to not only me, but our relationship. He has to accept me for all that I am, as I would him. Someone who won’t judge me for my past and cares about my future.
I want to marry the one person I am going to love for the rest of my life, even when I’m old and gray. I have to know that the best decision I have ever made was saying “Yes.” I want to know that our love with last through anything. I need something concrete in my life.
I refuse to marry for money, children, or because it’s the “next step.” When I get married, it’s going to be for real.
I don’t know where I want to get married. I don’t know what colors we’re going to go with, what band, or what kind of flowers. To be honest, none of that would matter to me, just as long as I love that man.
