While I’m sitting here waiting for my family to wake up from their naps, I can’t help but think about life.
I honestly did not see it being like this.
I never thought I’d be married. I wanted to be, but never thought I would be. I wasn’t the pretty, gorgeous or desirable girl in school. I was dorky, fat and had braces. It didn’t help that there was a certain adult who was a complete asshole towards me and made me feel uglier and fatter than I probably was.
But I did. I got married.
I found a man, well, he was a boy when we met all those years ago, that actually loved me. His name? Greg.
I wasn’t entirely surprised when he proposed, but then again I was shocked that someone wanted to marry ME!
As time went on we had our ups and downs that every couple has; obviously not that bad of downs since we’ve been married over 3 years, we got married and our boys were born. Life changed drastically.
I’ve been asked if it were worth it. Was getting married, having kids and settling down worth losing a carefree life.
It was. It was more than worth it. Being a wife and mother is a completely different adventure than I ever imagined it to be. I’ve also learned that being a wife and mother is not easy. It’s far from easy and should not be taken lightly when you decide to do it. Once you’re married there is no “breaking up”. You have to go through an expensive divorce. Once you have kids, that’s it, you’re a mom until the day you die. That child will depend on you for everything.
I love it.
I love having a husband and children. I love being a wife and mother. It’s a wonderful, amazing and fulfilling thing to do. I have 3 people who love me unconditionally sleeping away upstairs. And 3 people who I love unconditionally.
Do I regret making that life changing move?
No, not for a moment. Getting married and having my precious boys was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Granted Greg and I are not an average couple. We’re snarky and sarcastic. But it works for us. It’s who we are and I don’t see it changing. Which is fine, I love him for who he is even when he can’t admit when I’m right. Which is all the time.
So, what am I trying to say? Don’t regret your decisions. Don’t take marriage and kids lightly. They are an amazing adventure and don’t talk shit on someone who did chose that life instead of partying and drinking every night. Not everybody has such low standards for themselves.
