Getting Married

To borrow a phrase from Melanie Hawkes Krieger, "[Getting married] is probably the most harebrained thing I've ever done." The single life - it's not so bad. You just have yourself to take care of. You do what you want. It's less emotional. It's less risky. I think I'm pretty good at being single. I've been single for 28 years. It's what I know. It's what I'm comfortable with. And yet, now I decide to throw caution to the wind and give up the single life with reckless abandon so I can be forever linked to another person. I openly admit that I have no idea what I'm getting myself into. I have no idea what married life will be like and how my life will change. It will probably be turned completely upside down. Am I ready for this? Probably not. But, the good news is that I have someone to do this with me. And he probably doesn't know what he's getting himself into either (or he probably never would've asked). So we can learn together. And we'll be harebrained together. And we'll probably even have fun along the way. And one thing I do know is that we'll be happy. So, although it's a little scary (or a lot scary!), I look forward to this harebrained scheme of marriage! I love you, Jared!

Oh how cute! Let me assure you, its totally not harebrained. I totally know where you're coming from, but was pleasantly surprised to find out that marriage is literally the very best thing ever, as long as you choose carefully. You two will have a great time. I have no doubt.

I would take the married life over single life any day. Sometimes it's frustrating, but then you get over it and remember that the dating scene was 100% more frustrating. You'll love it.

Wow, you and Jared are really cutesy. I'll have to get used to that. You'll love being married. I'm really excited to attend the wedding extravaganza, but I'm also really happy for you.

One of the hardest things is just living with a guy and figuring out how your specific guy works. Guys are weird, and they do weird things. My advice (after 8 months) is to remember this when when it makes you upset. And then laugh it off, and say, well, guys are just weird. (Of course, A.J. is one of the weirdest) But just think of all the crazy things women do, too. They have to put up with a lot as well.
