How I know he’s The One

Today, Oli and I celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary.

3 years since my Dad walked me down the aisle.

3 years since we said “I do”.

3 years since I became a wife to the man of my dreams.

I know it is a cheesy thing to say but I really do believe Oli is The One. My perfect match and my soul mate. I was 18 when Oli and I got together and 21 when we got married, with a tiny baby Leo squirming around in my belly, hidden away under my wedding dress. Some may think I was too young, I settled down too soon but to those people I will simply say this, you’re wrong.

So what if I was still a teenager when I met my future husband? All this means is I get to have him in my life for longer, I get to be his wife for longer. I don’t regret for a second settling down and getting married in my early twenties, I feel lucky to have met the love of my life so young. The complicated world of online dating, Tinder, that terrifying ticking of my metaphorical biological clock will always be a mystery to me. Instead of spending years searching for Mr Right, I already have him, curled up with me on the sofa perfectly happy in each others company. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, do you?

Don’t get me wrong, we argue sometimes. I highly doubt there is a marred couple out there who can swear, hand on heart, that they never disagree with each other, We argue about big things and small things and everything in between but we always make up eventually, we always know we love each other even when we are fighting.

You might be wondering, how do I know Oli is definitely the one? What makes me so sure I have chosen the  right person to spend the rest of my life with? Well, here is how I know…

* I can’t think about a future where he isn’t around without nearly crying.

* I don’t care that I spent my university years cuddled up in a little flat with him instead of going out partying every night and living in a student house like everyone else.

* I suck at talking about feelings but he persevered and helped me open up. Now I can tell him anything,

* If I am being a bit dull he will tell me and I like that he’s not scared to correct me when I’m wrong.

* Even when he has been a bit of a crappy guy I can’t stay mad at him for long. I hate it when we’re not friends,

* Although he’s not that great on the compliments front, I know he still fancies me.

* 7 years on and we still say “I love you” every single day.

* I love to listen to him talk, he knows loads of stuff and I feel like he teaches me so much..

* He makes me laugh a lot. Even when I’m mad at him, which is so annoying.

* I can’t stand arguing with him, Not just because arguing is horrible but because I just want us to be happy,

* He knows when I’m not fine, even when I say I am.

* We kick ass at board games, full marks on Mr&Mrs every time.

* We are a great team.

* I still can’t help peeking at him when he’s getting changed, even though that body is not new to my eyes,

* No one has ever made me feel as special as he does.

* He gives me the push I need to be more confident and will always support me in the decisions I make,

* If I am down he always cheers me up, he never wants to see me sad.

* He works hard every day so I can stay home and look after our boy,

* All those years where we were really skint we always said it was OK as long as we were together. I would rather be living in a box with him than be a millionaire and alone,

* There is no other man in the whole world I would want as the father of my child,

And finally..

* I’m pretty sure I have always known.

Happy 3rd anniversary babe. Here is to many, many more happy years together xx
Sorry if you feel like you have just swallowed a massive chunk of cheese but I just had to write this post. No marriage is perfect but I think if you have found your Mr Right then it can be pretty damn close. I am looking forward to a lovely relaxed evening tonight and then a night out on the weekend to celebrate when the parents are here to babysit.
How old were you when you got married/fell in love? Does your other half still give you butterflies? I would love to know what married life is like for you.

    Oh yay, I just love these sappy kinds of posts! Happy Anniversary, what a lovely milestone <3 It truly sounds like you've found the one..you're soulmate. It's so wonderful when you just know the person you've chosen to spend your life with absolutely completes you. Congratulations-here's to many more! <3 #coolmumclub

    Aw what a lovely heart warming post! There's this stigma that if you marry young, you're somehow missing out. But on the other side of the spectrum there are many women/men in their 40s still searching for the elusive 'one.' I know which side of the fence i'd like to be on πŸ™‚ x

    Ah, what a lovely post. Happy anniversary. Some people spend their whole lives waiting for the one, some people never meet the one. You are lucky and you should be proud of yourself for having met the one and for having married him. Congratulations! #coolmumclub

    There's no "right" time to settle down, only the time that is right for you. As someone who has never found the One, thank you for writing something that gives me hope that he might still be out there. Maybe, er, somewhere! #KCACOLS

    Aw, lovely post. I agree with Min – everyone's different, it's fab if you want to settle down young or live it large all your life, lol. We're not married but Anthony really balances me out, he remembers all the sweet stuff like anniversaries and things. I just have a vague idea we've been together a long time! πŸ˜‰ x

    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday

    Happy anniversary! You two look so happy! My second time around I knew had found the one, but I still waited a while to make that long walk down the aisle. And, yes I still get butterflies all these years later! #KCACOLS

  25. April 20, 2016 / 11:01 am

    Congratulations on your wedding and good luck with your move to Dubai. I agree, you don't need a big fancy wedding if you're marrying the man of your dreams xx

  26. April 20, 2016 / 11:02 am

    Thank you πŸ™‚ xx

  27. April 20, 2016 / 11:03 am

    Yea, I don't know why people are weird about people marrying young, if you've found someone you want to spend the rest of your life with then it shouldn't matter xx

  28. April 20, 2016 / 11:04 am

    Aww thank you :). I am very lucky I didn't have to wait too long to find him xx

    Thank you. Yes it really was an amazing day xx

    He's out there somewhere I'm sure πŸ™‚ xx

  31. April 20, 2016 / 11:07 am

    Yup, everyone is different and it really shouldn't matter if you want to settle down at 16 or 60. As long as you're happy that's all that matters. Anthony sounds very sweet xx

  32. April 20, 2016 / 11:07 am

    Aww thank you so much xx

  33. April 20, 2016 / 11:08 am

  36. April 20, 2016 / 11:10 am

    I think if you still get the butterfly feeling then that's a sign you're definitely meant to be πŸ™‚ xx

  37. April 20, 2016 / 11:12 am
