Wedding Preps Series: Why Am I Marrying Anyway?

It's been several months since I started The Wedding Preps Series to share the nitty gritty of our wedding planning. I wrote about wedding suppliers, venues, budget perspectives and tips. Wedding planning is always so much focused on the logistics aspect, but I must not forget that it will happen only because of one thing, and one thing alone: I will marry a man. It's just right that I write about the very reason why I'm preparing for such celebration. (Even though I know he hates attention.) It's Valentine's after all.

It's true that good guys don't just grow on trees.  Well as for me, I found one at the beach. It's where I met my fiancé about four years ago. He was there with friends, I was there for a grad school activity, and as they say, the rest is history.

My fiancé surprised me in a lot of ways. He did what other guys didn't. He surprised me with how much love a person can give to another who isn't half as deserving. I met him during the time when I was lost and unhappy.  He's God's way of saving me. He kept my love tank filled. He showered me with support and affection. He isn't scared to say sorry and admit his fault. He isn't hesitant to promise he'll change for the better if necessary. He thinks of my happiness always and is so much willing to give up sleep or brave the heavy traffic or wait for me for hours to finish class. Did I mention I'm the luckiest?

My guy would lose his temper at times just like any other humans and I would hate him for it. We do fight. And then kiss and make up. We fight. Kiss and make up. Fight. Make up. And it goes on, and probably will for as long as we live. Our relationship isn't without flaws, but we have never ever even entertained the idea of leaving each other. We stick around no matter.

There are a lot of things I love about my fiancé,  but one that inspires me most is his heart of gold. His rough facade houses such a kind heart. His goodness inspires me to be a better person. He's one of the most giving and fair persons I know. And in a few months I will get to marry this man. Why am I marrying anyway? Because God has blessed me with a man who loves and, apparently, this man wants to marry me. ♡

C+M on Valentine's 2015
Getting hitched soon.
