Childhood expectations

Pin It
This Wedded Bliss Wednesday we're talking about childhood expectations of marriage.  I found this one to be just a little challenging because I met my husband so young and the point where imaginations became reality is really blurry in my memory.  But here goes...

When you were a child what did you imagine YOUR Prince Charming to be like?
My imaginary husband didn't occupy a lot of my thoughts so it's hard to say what I thought he'd be, other than that he'd be my husband.  I think Prince Charming was pretty chivalrous and wanted to have a lot of kids--at least that's as far as I remember getting with the idea. 

Does you husband match your prediction as a child?
I'd say so since those early expectations of just having one were met :-)  I definitely thought I was going to marry him when I was a kid too, but so do most little girls.  I'm not sure I get extra credit for being right :-)

The first time I thought I'd marry him.
What about when you were a teenager and knew all about love, does you relationship match that scenario you had during those rebel years? 
Mostly yes because we did in fact get married, but we got married later than I thought we would and we haven't had as many struggles as I thought we might.  When we were dating I really thought that he'd always want to do the same things I wanted to do and we'd always have the same goals but that hasn't turned out to always be true.  What I have learned is that my husband has lots of surprises.
Somewhere in the middle...
What love movie would you best match your relationship to? Why?
I don't really like this movie, but there's a quote from Sweet Home Alabama that made me smile to hear: "Nobody finds their soul mate when they're 10 years old."  Even though it's not a movie, we have been compared to Cory and Topanga from Boy Meets World.  This was even part of the homily at our wedding.
**Addendum: Allie's post reminded me about UP!  I saw that and thought the part when they were kids was so us--me never shutting up, him quietly enjoying my company.  Though I don't think I said the exact words, "You don't talk much.  I like you!" I think it was something like that...
Around the time I knew it was for realsies.


  1. Gah you guys are so sweet! You are so lucky to have met your husband young.. I'm sure you have had your share of heartache throughout the course of your relationship, but knowing you ended up together has to make it seem so worth it!

    1. Thanks, Kay! Even though I've really only had the one relationship, I still feel like the evolution of it correlates to several different relationships as we've changed.

  2. Cory and Topanga - love them! Cute pic at the end :)
