Marry the one who you wouldn’t mind waking up to every day for the rest of forever. The one who makes you so glad to be alive, who makes you feel like your heart has a huge goofy smile on its face. Please, don’t settle. 

Marry the one who drives you crazy. The one who frustrates you. The one you don’t mind fighting with, because they will remember to stick to their guns while never pointing them at you. Marry the one who reminds you to do the same.

Marry the one who you turn to when your world seems to come undone. The one whose warmth you want at 4am, because “nothing seems to work out.” The one you want at 2pm because you believe lunches are not meant to be eaten alone.

Marry the one who knows exactly how much tea you drink during the day. The one whose coffee intake you know all too well.

Marry the one you can imagine yourself spending not just Friday nights but also Sunday afternoons with. The one who makes you feel everything on a lazy Thursday evening. The one you can see yourself sticking with longer than you two have been apart.

Marry the one who can soothe the shaking with a hug. The one who is the relief to all of life’s aches and pains.

Marry the one who makes you the best version of yourself. The one who believes in you, even when you don’t. Especially when you don’t. The one who rejoices with you in your highs and offers to be your haven in your lows.

Marry the one you can’t imagine your life without. The one who you walked headfirst in love with. The one you can admit, without any pride and ego, has changed you for
better.

Marry the one you are in love with. The one who is in love with you.

Marry the one who knows exactly what you want to say when words don’t measure up to how you feel. The one who knows when laughter is needed and when tears alone will do.

Marry the one you see yourself going on long road trips with. The one who shares your runaway heart.

Marry the one who feels like home. The one who wants to rest their running shoes outside your door.

Marry your soulmate.

Marry your best friend.
