A model answer
I’m going to tell you about one of the more important decisions I’ve made – it changed my life almost completely. It was when I asked my girlfriend to marry to me.
It was in some ways a very easy decision to come to. We’d been going out together for quite some time – very nearly 4 years. In that time we’d got closer and closer and I think we both knew that we’d tie the knot one day. But strangely enough getting married wasn’t something we had discussed in any detail. It was something that had been mentioned from time to time but we didn’t sit down and talk it through.
How I made it
One day though I came to the conclusion that the time was right and I took her out for an expensive meal and popped the question. She said yes which was of course amazing and we did get married around 6 months later.
The results of the decision
What I hadn’t considered though was all the planning that went into a wedding. Almost as soon as we’d told our families everyone was of course very excited. But very quickly both our mothers became involved in planning the wedding and the next 6 months were extremely hectic – there was so much to do – make lists of guests, book a church, arrange catering , get invitations printed and so on. It became quite stressful.
Why it was so important
That said it was not just a really important decision, it was without doubt the best decision I’ve ever made.
