Getting married to her doesn’t feel like a change for me, because I’m already committed to her. We’ve been together for a long time and often times it feels like we’ve always been together. This official commitment is simply a formality.
Marriage means to me : putting on paper the promise that ” I’ll always be there for you and you’ll always be there for me “. If you want to belong to someone and something, somewhere, you have to commit to it – and that is a conscious decision. Commitment is a choice.
Of course I’m a man who loves commitment, I’m German !
