As the only member of the group that is officially married I guess it falls on me to tell you the story of how I knew I loved my wife enough to marry her.
The honest truth is I never knew and I still don’t.
Why I asked her was because I felt like I could spend the rest of my life looking at her when I wake up, we were already expecting our first child and there were high emotions running at the time.
She was my best friend and now we were going to bring a baby into the world. If I wasn’t sure at that moment I don’t think I ever would have been.
That doesn’t mean I have loved her the same way ever since.
She’s still my best friend but that love grew. I don’t think marriage is something that really needs to happen and many people tend to get carried up in emotions and stuff and go with the flow. I don’t think you can sit there and point to a point in time where you just knew because of love. You know because you know.
You know because in your heart you know that this is someone that you don’t want to leave ever again.
Has that got much to do with love I don’t know.
6 children down and our relationship has grown and whilst the love will always be there we’ve seen the worst of each other, the best of each other and all the sticky in betweens too. We’ve fallen out, got back together just to fall out again and our love grew in a different way.
You just know.
