Getting Prepared?

The Ilocana and I were engaged for 9 long years before we got married. We kept on putting it off thinking that we will get wed only if we are prepared. That moment never came. We were never prepared until we took the plunge.
Even Turgenev is right after all when he said: “If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin.
And now that we have married many years with 3 grown up kids the lesson we have learned is this, you get ready as you go along and learn the process.
