The Sacrament of Marriage – Jane Austen

“A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.”

And anyone who thinks it’s any different today, is deluding themselves, which makes radical, third-wave feminism so dangerous for women. kqd

  1. I hope my boyfriend doesn’t read this haha because that is exactly how a woman’s imagination is. When I met him I instantly new I loved him and daydreamed of him purposing and us getting married. Although, it hasn’t been like this with every man, it is the sign that this one is the real thing. Or so I believe. I’m so glad I found your blog 🙂

  2. Oh, amen to that! As a young girl, it was so easy for me to fall in love and dream of marriage. It’s actually something I struggle with now as a single gal who’s trying to wait on the man God intends for me (if He intends for me to have a husband at all).

    • It is a struggle worth wrestling with because if God sends you a husband, he will be a very lucky man to have such a good woman. And if God has another plan for your life, your struggle will keep you, and all of those in your sphere of influence, in good stead as well. It’s a win/win struggle worth grappling with. God bless your life’s journey and thank you for your comment.
