🙌🙌🙌 Can’t recommend this one enough. Now this song from one of my favorite bands is obligatory:

Then two other things, Stella.

  1. Solid advice on not dating someone who doesn’t have massive character defects in order. Or, as you stated, if you’re that person, put in the work now. I tell twenty-somethings often to become the type of person they’d want to marry now, so that they’re not working on it later.
  2. My wife and I do premarital counseling for our church, so you end up talking about everything from finances to sex. One thing we recommend over and over to couples is having a “SexPectations” talk a few weeks prior to getting married as it will only enhance their marriage and sex life together.

Thanks for writing this! Loved it!
