My Dream Wedding #5

So I have finally managed to get round to writing this post. I did intend to do this one a few weeks ago but I have had so many other posts I have wanted to do first and now it has come round to doing this one I feel like it needs to be changed as my circumstances have changed! I have mentioned it enough times now and I am sure you are sick of reading about it but I am now engaged which makes me even more happy that I did my previous posts on my dream wedding. Now it is only even more real and I can start to hopefully put some of those plans into action.

When I first starting doing my dream wedding blog posts I said that the last one, #5 would just explaining why I wanted to get married and what being married would mean to me. It all seemed simple in my head and I know what I want to put but when it comes to writing it all down I can't seem to find the right words!

Marriage is a huge commitment and part of me does feel a bit strange being ready to make that commitment at a yound age but I really don't think it matters what age you are. When you decide to marry someone, you are deciding that they are going to be the person you spend the rest of your life with, the person you'll have children with and the person who will be with you to share any good and bad times. You know when you have found that person. 

I have always been somebody who has felt 10 years older than my actual age. When I was young I was thinking about getting married and having babies, so when I was about 10, in my head I was seriously like a 20 year old, and now I feel like I should be in my thirties. I think this is partly just my personality and also I have had to grow up over the last few years. During our relationship a lot of things have happened and we had no choice but to grow up quickly and deal with things. We have to look after and care for people and make decisions that we shouldn't have to make about so many things. We've lived in different places, we have moved a few times over the last year and that is something that already feels like it has added years onto our relationship. There are just so many factors which make us feel a lot older than we actually are and added to that, we are just one of those typically romantic couples who just can't wait for all the exciting things we have to come. We feel like we are ready for this, we really are. If our circumstances had been different I think we probably would have been engaged a lot sooner, but I am glad it happened the way it did because it was just perfect. We are 100% sure this is forever, I know you can't predict what will happen in the future and it sounds soppy but you really do just know when you've found the one. That is the reason I want to get married. I want to take Georges last name and officially be Mr and Mrs and just spend the rest of my life with him.

There is no bigger commitment and I am more ready for it. In a few years time I will be a wife and have a different surname, I will be part of this new family, our new family and I just can't wait. I have always wanted this and to know it is going to happen is the most exciting thing.

Congratulations on your engagement! I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to settle down at nineteen - I know my boyfriend and I are on the same boat in a sense that we both act like an old couple haha :) x
