Why moving to your forever home is basically the same as getting married

August 1, 2018

"Will you marry me......?"


Essentially asking "Will you commit to me for the rest of our lives according to UK law?" (or whatever country you happen to live in).


Following this is lots of preperation, signing some documents and BOOM! you're legally bound this person for the forseeable future. The same goes for buying a house...


When you buy a house, you go and see it (like meeting a partner) and if you fall in love with it - you put in an offer to go and legally purchase it (like applying for a marriage license) and then start the preperations to move into it once the offer has been accepted (no one has informed authorities you have a secret spouse living in another country).


When I met Nicky, I fell in love with him really quickly. When he asked me to marry him I didn't even have to hesatate in thinking about it. When we saw the house we have moved into, we both loved it. Well, we loved what it COULD be. We knew this was the house we could spend the rest of our lives in. We called the agents the following day and started the long-winded process of putting in offers and getting it bought.


When we were going through the motions, I really did feel like we were prepping for our wedding again, organising and planning every single little detail.  There are so many similarities, both of them are legal processes that you are committing your life to.


Both journey's were a whirlwind of excitement, fun and stress BUT I wouldn't change either of these experiences for the world and we are both ready to take on the next part of these journeys!
