It’s funny the things that divorce will have us telling ourselves, particularly in the beginning. I remember when I first met CBG, over three years ago, only a few months out of my marriage, I was rather certain that I would never get married again. I was bitter and I daresay a bit jaded about the marriage thing. I recall a conversation pretty early on when one of us asked the other, “Do you think you’ll ever get married again?” and we both answered that question with the same resounding, “HELL NO!!”
Several months into our relationship I remember the general topic of marriage being discussed again. We were still both hesitant, but the “HELL NO!” had softened into a “…maybe someday…”
I’m not sure when exactly it happened, but at some point, the “…maybe someday…” morphed into a, “I want to get married again someday”. It certainly didn’t happen overnight. But as CBG and I worked on our relationship and allowed our love to grow and deepen, the more I realized that I wanted to one day be a wife.
Now, don’t go throwing out the ‘congrats’ just yet, people. There has been no official question or answer at this point. But do you like what I did with my title there? Had you a lil bit excited there for a minute, now didn’t I?
I guess my point here is (and I do have one, beyond taunting my faithful internets purely for my own amusement), is that it’s important to keep an open mind (and heart) in life. We just never know what life is going to present to us at any time. In the span of less than three and a half years, I have gone from a woman who was pretty bitter about marriage and KNEW I was never going to take that particular plunge again, to a woman in love who knows that without a doubt, one day, she will be again be saying “I do”.
Funny the things that happen in life, huh?
