Forever and ever…Amen.

“I’d be surprised if their marriage last a year.”


Brittany Harper was always repulsed by the thought of marrying someone. She never had any positive experiences with marriage; everyone she knew that had gotten married were divorced within 3 years. With the divorces, a lot of horrible custody battles arose.

Custody of children, pets and yes, even things. The typical things such as a home, or a vehicle…but also of atypical things; such as, pots/pans, and gaming consoles. She met Arron, those feelings did not really change.

Brittany was very disgruntled when it came to believing in love; she was also very aware of the difficulties someone would probably face if they promised to love her forever. Because of this, she was not set on having someone desire to be in her life forever.

Even though she was in her late 20s, she had decided that love was not meant for her and she had come to terms with it.

Arron proposed marriage to Brittany in the most romantic way, but she still did not answer his question of “Will you marry me” immediately. She thought that by stalling, he would somehow forget why he was kneeling down on one knee at her feet with her left hand in his.

Everyone who knew Brittany well understood her feelings about marriage and that is why they all said “I’d be surprised if their marriage lasts a year.” No, it is not because they were used to Brittany starting something and not finishing it. Rather it is because everyone was aware of how she felt about marriage.


I MUST SLEEP NOW…IT IS 2:27 AM – I will finish this by this weekend…

August 16-17, 2013

Brittany was a “good girl;” and well known for doing what she wanted to…she would keep her word, she never liked to lie to someone. That is why her acceptance to Arron’s proposal was hesitant. She did not want to lie to him, especially about such a HUMONGOUS thing.

These feelings were simply Brittany’s fear of being hurt. She was scared that she was the only one to take the promise of marriage seriously. Arron did not feel the same way about marriage as Brittany did–he said that the option of divorce was not something he wanted, but sometimes it had to happen. Brittany did not like this-after all, she was ready to give her word of ‘forever’ to Arron.

Brittany and Arron disagreed on so many different things. Eventually, they decided to call the whole thing off—much to Brittany’s relief. Brittany had accepted that she was meant to live her life alone. Then, she met Bryce Banister–right in the middle of her decision to “ban” men from her life romantically.

Bryce was as doubtful about marriage as Brittany was. He was surrounded by people who also broke the vows that they had made to one another as well. The people he knew that had divorced had been married for 15+ years and had grown children before they decided to legally end their love for one another.

Bryce was also extremely scared of that possibly happening to him if he were to marry. Because of this, he had decided not to ever allow himself to fall so hard in love with a woman that he uttered those “easy” words. He felt that he was the only person to seriously consider the meaning behind them.

See, Bryce was not scared of commitment in the least bit. Again, he did not believe a woman would come into his life who felt the same about “promising to love – until death do you part.” Then, he met Brittany.

Brittany was a refreshing change in Bryce’s life. Brittany made Bryce want to be a better man.
