My ideal life would be to get a scholarship at Cambridge University, and graduate with a PhD. After I graduate, I would like to become an environmental lawyer, specifying in wilderness preservation. I would continue to live in England until I think of a reason not to, and I will make my home there. I don’t want to get married right away, and especially not have children right away. I still want to be young and have fun- I don’t want to have a kid to take care of and spend money on when I’m 25! I also want to wait until I know that I am financially stable and capable of supporting myself, before I even think about marriage. I do, however, want to get married; I’ll just be later than everybody else.
Once I know that I am more than adequate for myself, I will start getting into dating. Sure, I’ll have been dating before and I may know who I want to spend my life already, but now I’ll prepare for marriage. I know marriage is a really important action, so I need to be absolutely positive who I’ll marry, because it would kill me to get a divorce and especially if I had children-I would never want to put them through that. During and before the marriage, my partner and I will need to be taking our relationship a lot more seriously- if not already. After I get married, my husband and I will need to decide where we want to live, if we want a house or apartment, if kids, then how many? Etc. I think we need to have everything on the table so there will be no misunderstandings later on, because a simple misunderstanding can lead to something much worse.
Once I am officially married, my husband and I will move into a new house and just get use to everything like living so close to each other, paying bills, our jobs, etc. I do not want to have a child immediately, I want to wait a year or two at least to make sure that my husband and I get along perfectly so we don’t have to go through a divorce while I am pregnant or with a child.
