with our 6!!! year anniversary rapidly approaching, i can’t help but mull over memories of the past, how much i love nate in the present, and anticipation of things to come. i recently read this article by a fellow alum of my college: why i told 150 wedding guests that my husband does not complete me and couldn’t agree more. you don’t have to agree with me or even ‘get it’ at all. i’m just throwing it out there because i’m interested to hear all your thoughts
nate does not ‘complete me.’ this is by no means an insult to him. he knew this info far before we walked down the aisle. i wasn’t a ‘broken doll’ missing some part. we accepted each other exactly how we were and continue to be. i could not have found a person who understands and allows me to be the person i am meant to be!
he knows i’m not society’s view of a ‘normal’ woman. i feel i’m at my ‘best’ simply knowing he’s on my side. i don’t want to bear biological children, i work daily towards cultivating my evolution as an individual and a member of our life’s partnership. it’s important in our marriage that we have our own interests and identities. otherwise, how can we compliment each other?
we have many shared interests and passions and encourage the pursuit of a lifetime of opportunity. we actively work to create those ‘chances of a lifetime,’ please understand that they don’t just fall onto your doorstep by accident. people that are passive about this life fascinate me. it’s not a lack of contentment on my part that drives me towards these feelings, quite the opposite actually. it’s the desire to make the most of the time i have here.
so what do you have to say about all this? do you think it’s important to have the feeling of ‘completeness’ or otherwise?
