I can’t talk about Stephanie without talking about Revano. They’re like the perfect couple – always loving and always adoring. She is the stamp to his envelope and he’s the cream to her coffee. They can’t be separated. They should never have to be, because being together just brings out the best in both of them. And watching them just brings such a warm and fuzzy feeling inside…
Seeing this has got me thinking a little bit about marriage and what happens to a girl’s identity. Do we lose ourselves once we join our lives for eternity to the man of our choice? Do we suddenly become less now that we’re an attribute to some guy? After eight years of marriage, I would say that I’ve got a little of a conservative take on this. Although there may be times I crave for the freedom I once had to follow my heart’s every desire, I have formed a personal opinion that being attached to the right man of my choice had brought me so much joy, more than I have ever dreamed of before I even began. Being attached to David and referring to myself as “his wife” does not make me lose the Fen that I have come to know and love. In fact, I think I like this Fen even more after she became David’s wife. And it’s a great feeling to know that I belong with him and him with me. That’s what brings the warm and fuzzy feeling about every time. They say that attachment brings out the worst in a relationship, but I say it’s what makes us the hopeless romantics we are.
Now I think about Stephanie and the lifelong promise she will make sometime this month to be forever attached to Revano. And I can’t wait to hear all about the sweetness they are going to discover on their journey together, knowing that they are where they belong.
Congratulations warm and fuzzy couple!
