Hello everyone! I’m back from an almost month-long rest from blogging. There have been countless times when I wanted to just sit down and write, but my awful mood has gotten the best of me. It happens to best of us, right? But let me start off my come back with an announcement... I just got married!
It was almost exactly as how we planned it to be. We wanted a simple civil wedding on our anniversary, October 11, with only our immediate family as we plan to have a renewal of vows/ second wedding on 2018 with our other family members and closest friends. We wanted this wedding to push through just so we can start early with the papers and legalities early before our planned real big day.
During the ceremony, it was a surprise when we were asked for a short message for each other because we already told the judge beforehand that we wouldn’t want to exchange vows since we’re saving it for 2018. I thought I was good with speeches until that day. All I can tell him was, “I love you;” but in reality, there’s a lot more I’d want to say. And nope, I’m not posting it here. Everyone can wait two years because I feel like it would be the perfect moment. Sorry!
I know that there is no one else I’d want to spend the rest of my life with but him, but it didn’t occur to me that we’d get married soon. He has told everyone (including me) before that marriage is not something he completely agrees on; but here we are and I couldn’t be happier.
Signing our marriage certificate was one of the happiest moments in my life. Our civil wedding wasn’t magical sparkly and all that but everything felt right and we both know that it was the right step to take to move forward in our relationship.
We have been labeled as #RelationshipGoals by our friends. People don’t see nor hear us fight, we seem to always know what the other person is thinking, and it’s like we totally understand each other completely. News flash! We don’t always get each other. We have our own quirks and differences and we do argue at times; but the most important thing to remember is that it’s totally normal and no one should just give up because of a couple of misunderstandings. We learned how to calm down and listen to what the other person is saying. We learned to be sensitive with regard to the other person’s mood or temper. We learned that we may still make unexpected mistakes in this journey and that all we need to do is to talk about it and figure out together how we can make things right. They may all sound simple and I guess every couple tries to deal with things that way, but it takes a lot of love, patience, and courage to go through with all of these.
I am aware that marriage is not something you do just out of love. Marriage is the next step once you’re already aware that you both are ready and committed enough to open a new chapter in your lives. There’s no turning back and there’s no leaving when the going gets tougher for one of us to handle; and we’re here to work things out together.
