When I was Single Part 1
Over the past couple of months, i've had cause to engage with one of our wards who lives with us (a single lady) on various topics around relationship and marriage, as she has asked several questions and shared schools of thoughts. We’ve addressed some of these thoughts, seen from her perspective and tried to help her examine things better. This morning, the thought of posting some of my “ideas” as a single and comparing it with what eventually became came to mind, hoping someone will find it valuable. So here we are!
As a single, I wanted to marry someone who was like 5 years older than me. That was my parents reality, plus I felt that arrangement would ensure I was taken kia of by an older guy. My husband of about 19 years is barely a year older than me 😄.
I am a Pharmacist. I grew up surrounded by medical "pipu". I felt it was enough. I didn’t want to marry someone in the medical field. Thankfully, I achieved that. However, ironically, a major business I and hubby do together has to do with health and dealing with medical practitioners & issues 🤣😂. If you listen to him in some meetings, you would think he’s a medical person, the way he says some things with his full chest 😜🙄🤷♀️
My dear fellow married people, what did you want as a single and what is your reality now? Can we share and help a single?
