Why Getting Married Is Important To Me

I asked on Twitter what posts you would like to see. The first to reply back was the lovely Lucy from Capture by Lucy. She asked me to write a post about why getting married is important to me. So here it is :)

Getting married is very important to me. One of the main reasons we are getting married is to be together. Silly as it sounds but I want to be Marks wife. I want him to be my husband. I honestly think that connection must be pretty amazing. To know that you have come together in front of family and friends to announce your love for one and other. To be a partnership, a unit. Facing the world together, forever.

I know that me and Mark are a solid team  now and together with Paige we are a family but something makes everyone else accept a family more if they are married. At least I think so. We aren't doing it for others at all but if getting married helps shows people that we are a family, a team then that's another reason to get married.

Another reason is my surname. I HATE having a different last name to Paige. I've thought about just changing it but something about that doesn't quite feel right without marriage, is that silly? I know that whatever my last name I'm her mum and nothing can change that but by having a different last name just doesn't feel right.

I can't wait to be a wife and to have a husband.  Marriage is a bond that I can't wait to experience. 

Is marriage important to you?

Thanks for reading,

  1. Wonderful reasons to get married. Wishing you happy planning and the most happy day! xx

    1. Thank you sweetie. I hope it all goes to plan :) Xx

  2. I really like this post Nicola. I also am a firm believer in marriage, I like the fact that you are sealing your love for each other. I don't think that you have to, but for me I wanted too. I am sure it will be a wonderful wedding day, and I CANNOT wait to read the posts leading up to it, and of course seeing the photos! x

  3. I'm the same as you Nicola, I really want to have the same surname as my future children and being able to call someone your husband just sounds more permanent somehow. My Other Half doesn't unfortunately hold the same thoughts as me so I guess I'll be looking into changing my name by deed poll!!

    1. Awwwww. Mark wasn't too keen in getting married. He didn't think we needed a piece of paper to show that we love each pother and I don't either but theres something solid about getting married if that makes sense. x

  4. Marrying Adam was the best day of my life, being married is the best. I love this post :)
