here we are at #1 in the think about it before jumpin’ the broom! and the first thing is: can you be without him?
now please notice that i didn’t ask, “can you live without him?” of course, you can live without him! you’re not gonna die without this man that you’re thinking of marrying. i know, i know… he’s fine, got swag and intelligence, a pretty decent bank account, romances you to the moon and yeah, he’s fine. but you could live without him, you know, if you had to.
well, i take that back. i’m sure there are some extreme cases of women who have died from not having that one particular man they just loved so (anything’s possible, right?), but i’m banking on you not being that woman. and that’s not what i mean anyway.
does he not let you be…even for a minute? is he ringing your phone off the hook with questions like, “hey, where are you?,” “where are you going?,” “who are you with?,” “how long will you be gone?,” “what time you coming back?” as soon as you leave?
yeah? well, guess what, honey, chances are it’s going to get worse before it gets a whole lot better.
and hey, maybe that’s okay with you. perhaps you measure his love for you by how many times a day he calls you. maybe you think him checking in on you every half hour while you’re trying to hang out with your girls is…i dunno…cute. it could be that that type of thing doesn’t bother you not one wee bit. but if it does, then i suggest you think about it before jumping the broom.
