Perspective from a woman — I just want to point out that as we go through the ups and downs of life, we all — male and female — become more mature and, yes, a little less “cute”. Women may mourn the loss of that young, romantic “prince” just as much as men mourn the loss of their cute, innocent “princess”. But if all goes well, you’ll both be trading those characteristics for stronger, more resilient ones.
My husband and I have been together for 25 years. We’ve been through a lot —financial struggles, illness, other things I won’t burden you with. There have been times when leaning on each other was the only thing keeping us standing. I’m sure there are men who want a childlike, dependent partner. But life can be hard, and it’s easier to face with someone standing by your side instead of hanging on your arm.
Enjoy young love. And if your princess one day becomes your Queen, bless her for that too.
