For the past 15 months, I have been fortunate to have someone special in my life. He’s stepped way outside his comfort zone by coming on adventures with me. And he’s waited patiently for me to be ready to come home more permanently without ever rushing me. Last week Monday I bought him a ring and asked him a very important questions. And, while marriage equality does not yet exist in Australia, he said “yes”.
And so, in November 2016, Paul and I will be standing in front of our families and friends to declare our love for and commitment to each other. We don’t care that the government won’t give us a piece of paper because we know that piece of paper means nothing (just look at divorce rates and the sham visa marriages that take place).
Ironically, Paul was 42 when I met him … maybe there’s something in that 😉
