Girl meets boy at a party in LA. They hit it off immediately but live in separate states and never expect to see each other again. They become friends on Facebook. Seven years later, they both end up living in Dallas. Boy reaches out to girl for a date. Girl accepts. And the rest, as they say, is history. Four years of dating later, boy shows up at girl’s office (aka We the Birds headquarters) and pulls a ring—hidden in a matchbox from their first trip to Italy, no less—out of his pocket. Girl of course says yes, and now, the rest really is history.
Focus on what really matters: “It’s not the date, the venue, the invitations, or the time of the ceremony. What matters is the commitment to each other—the vows and devotion to strengthening your relationship forever.”
You won’t agree on everything: “Pick and choose your battles and remember that letting your partner get his or her way doesn’t mean that you lose. You both win because, ultimately, knowing your partner is happy is your reward.”
