I DON'T REGRET A SINGLE BROKEN HEART
THAT TAUGHT ME WHAT LOVE WAS AND WHAT IT'S NOT
SOMEONE MUST HAVE PLANNED OUR TWO PATHS WOULD CROSS
I COULDN'T SEE IT THEN BUT I WAS NEVER LOST
'CAUSE ALL MY ROADS HAVE LED ME TO
THIS NIGHT, THIS LOVE I SHARE WITH YOU
AND THOUGH THE ROAD WAS NEVER SMOOTH
LIFE HAS MADE ME SOMEONE WHO COULD BE THE RIGHT SOMEONE FOR YOU
For Crystal Collier's Moonless Book Release Blogfest, we're answering the question: if you lived in a society with arranged marriages, whom would you want your parents to set you up with and why? (Literary characters and celebrities welcomed!)
Well, I'm going to cheat a bit here - my husband and I met our first day of college, when we were trying to get out of taking the math and science class requirement. (To this day, please don't ask us anything math or science-related!) We became good friends and stayed that way all through college. My mother lamented the fact he had a girlfriend. His mother always liked me. Life went on. He broke up with his girlfriend. I had a boyfriend. More life. Then, during our last semester of college, we were both free, and what we found was…each other.
We'll be married for fifteen years this spring, but we'll have been friends for way longer than that. So, while our marriage wasn't arranged, I can't help but wonder if our mothers didn't have some sort of maternal sixth sense from the beginning….
The quote above are lyrics from our wedding song - Collin Raye's All My Roads - and truer words were never sung. We really just never know where our lives, our roads, will take us. Let's have faith that we'll end up just where we're meant to be.
