Our Ducks are in a Row
I was pleasantly surprised to find I felt very relieved. There is a calming reassurance to knowing that you've put things in order. There's comfort in knowing that it's written down on paper. I don't know why we waited so long. (Yes, I do. We're lazy that way.)
What I found during the process was that my husband and I shared the same mindset even more than I'd thought. When issues came up that we hadn't decided beforehand, we turned to each other and gave the same answers; we were unified in what we want. If anything, it solidified the idea that we're married forever and that we've decided these things as a team.
We walked out of the lawyer's office with a sense of accomplishment. It made me feel good. I'm sorry we waited so long, but am glad that we finally got our ducks in a row. And that nothing happened to us before we did.
