Things we wouldn't do.

We wouldn't have to chase time all the time, squeeze our schedules to meet each other; we wouldn't have to wait for texts saying the other got home fine; we wouldn't have to pretend that we can bear shopping or that we believe in retail therapy just because the other thought we should; we wouldn't have to wear thin engagement rings on little fingers instead of the ring fingers and hide that we are engaged; or take bumpy cab rides together; or make un realistic plans to watch our favorite tv shows together; or make friends with each other's friends because now we would become part of a bigger circle apparently; nor would we have to tell our parents about us; and reveal the story from the beginning; or scream that we are going on some packaged honeymoon with nauseous bus rides that has a cash back offer on some hotel room; we don't have to keep the cards, or imagine what we could gift on the dates we would never remember
Those are things that lovers do. And we just have to do them anymore.
We wouldn't have to do so much now. That is a lot of burden off our chests. A long list off our to-do lists.

Savvy ??!

The question is not that you don't have to do it anymore, the question is would you continue to not want to do it? Forever? Or is it just a temporary respite?

I had these thoughts. They didn't have the branded clothing of your words, but I had them. When I moved from 'committed' to 'married'. And then...
