One Response to Before Getting Married…

  1. As each generation passes it leaves behind a deposit to humanity. It leaves us with the matriculated wisdom of times past, with the Wisdom of Old, that has stood the test of time. Your 20 things is a list formulated from the perspective of a hopeful seed, from the point of view of someone who has not yet lived a full life of committed love and has succeeded, from the angle of a seed that has yet to flourish and bear the wisdom of its fruition. Your summary is the constructive speculation of a deep, sincere, and inspiring woman. While many women out there may seek to accomplish all twenty of those things to add to their registers of life experiences, your list is missing the one and most important thing. If you found the man you’re so in love with that you can’t just imagine living with him, but you cannot imagine living without him; if you found your love, if you found the one you’re supposed to marry, if you found the man that loves you wholeheartedly, unreservedly, with all that he is and has, without end, then none of those 20 things really matter. And that is a lesson of Old, which is always ever present and ever new.
