asphodellium

It’s kind of cute, I guess, the joke about Bible colleges being “bridal colleges.” Even cuter are the single girls eagerly awaiting their future husbands. Such sincerity and idealism.

Mind you, I have nothing against sincerity or idealism. But I do come across one common sentiment that goes something like, “I refuse to settle for anything less than what I deserve.”

There’s truth in it, I suppose. But I don’t recall ever thinking this way. Not that I thought too extensively about a future spouse, but when I did, it was always for “a man I would be worthy of.”

And now, after two fabulous years of marriage, I believe more than ever that it’s not about finding the right person. It’s about being the right person.
