You and I were best friends for a year and a half. We did everything together and were inseparable. Now we’ve been “together” for 10 months and have had a few conversations about marriage and children. I understand that you’re older than me and don’t want to be an old man by the time you have kids. Fine. But what about me? Do you ever stop and think about what I may want? But hold on. Let’s back this up a bit.
You don’t ever even want to get married because you don’t understand why you have to make your relationship “legal”?! Excuse me?! Once again, don’t you ever stop and think about me and what I think about stuff? Getting married isn’t just about legalizing a relationship. It’s about being husband and wife. About binding your lives together and sharing a name. I want to have a husband. I want to wear a ring on my finger that was picked out by you! You already mean the world to me. But I don’t want you to be my boyfriend for the rest of my life. I want you to be my husband!!
Back to the kid thing. I want to have a baby! And I know you do too! You just won’t admit it. I understand that you don’t want to be too old, but I don’t want to be too young either. I want to enjoy being able to drink publicly. I want to travel and do fun things with you first, but then I want a baby!!! I want to be a mother.
But more than all that, I want to be able to tell you these things without you freaking out on me. Without you having second thoughts about our relationship. Because we both know we’re perfect for each other. And I love you with all my heart.
