We are 9 days away from heading to NY to get married. I am not quite sure how I feel about it all. In one way it seems very unreal and in a whole different way it feels like we have already been married for 7 years.
The past 7 years with D have been amazing. We knew we were meant to be together from day 1. We fit together, we know what the other is thinking, we finish each other’s thoughts, one thinks it and the other says it without ever having any type of conversation about it, and we are on the same page 90% of the time. Of course there is that 10% when we just want to kill the other one but doesn’t every marriage have that 10%? LOL I almost feel like we already did the whole wedding thing without ever doing it. We never really thought getting legally married was an option so we never thought too much past that. We exchanged rings, we referred to ourselves as married and wives, we build a home, and we made a family. In our eyes we have always been married with or without a license.
Now for the first time, we have the option to actually be legally married. We will have a legal marriage license. We will file our taxes together. We will check the married box on our documents. We will have legal rights without having to file all the extra documents to ensure my wife will get what she should have when I am no longer here. We will have options when it comes to legal stuff with baby J. I will get to stand in front of D and proclaim my love to her and have all the beautiful wedding pictures to hang around our house. We will have a party and celebrate our vows and I cannot wait! I didn’t know I wanted to so bad until it was an option to have.
We will be legally married in 13 short days! Then she is stuck with me. LOL
