My first Odyssey article I ever wrote was all about how I don't have a dream job, and my only two dreams in life are to become a wife and a mom someday. And I am so excited to announce that one of those things is coming true soon, but some may think it's too soon. Well, I don't think it's too soon.
As they say, "When you know, you know" and that goes for my fiance and I as well.
It still feels so weird saying fiance as opposed to boyfriend, in a good way, of course. Yes, we're only seniors in college this fall, but we don't plan to get married until after we graduate with our Bachelor's degrees.
And yes, there is still more schooling in the future for him as he pursues his Master's degree, and I will need to lock down a full-time job once I graduate, but we both just... know.
We know that God will get us through everything. We know that even though it's not ideal for most people to get married or even engaged so young, we'll figure it out.
And I don't mean that in an "Oh, love will get us through everything" naive kind of way. I mean it in a "We've gotten through so much together and we're stronger together," kind of way.
I truly believe he is my other half and he pushes me to be a better version of myself.
I guess a level of maturity and clarity is required for this type of thing to work out, but throughout our entire relationship, we have both been really level-headed and mature about every trial that's come our way so far.
At the end of it all, every relationship is different and unique, but mine is on the road to forever, and I could not be more excited for it to start.
