Some of us know what we want at an early age, and that's okay. Long before there was a ring on my finger, I knew that this was the person I wanted to spend my life with, no questions asked. We've been best friends and high school sweethearts for many years. We know each other inside and out, we have the best time together, and it's always been certain that it's just meant to be. So, why wait?

Some people might say that waiting strengthens the relationship, and there's no need to rush into anything. That's completely fine. Everyone has a different idea of when they want the big day to happen, and some are sooner than others. My fiance and I aren't planning on getting married for a year and a half. Some people get married just months after they've been engaged. It doesn't matter when. What matters is that you feel that it's right.

We have never doubted for a second that this is right for us.

Being engaged doesn't mean that I'm giving up other aspects of my life. We have always worked together and always celebrated each other's passions, so why would that change now? I'm happy, and he's happy. In fact, we're on top of the world. He proposed to me on Christmas Day, and it was one of the more certain days of my life thus far. I say "certain" because I felt like the whole world was answering my questions for me. I realized that yes, this is right. This is exactly what I want and I am head over heels for him.

I've always loved him, and being engaged just makes me love him, and this feeling, more. I always knew we would get married someday. It was never something foreign to us. From the moment we met, we both knew that there were grand possibilities in our future. Now that we've made the commitment, it feels like everything has changed. Of course, the man I love remains the same, but our outlook is so much brighter. Instead of dreaming about our future, we're planning it. Being engaged is a great feeling, and I don't think I will ever regret it. How can I regret something that makes me feel this way?
