I like the anticipation of something that's about to happen, especially when I'm not sure what the outcome will be. For example, not knowing who your future spouse will be. Sometimes, though, I would like to take a peek into the future and see who it is I will marry, or when it is I will marry. I know that takes all the fun out of it, but it also rids a lot of uncertainty.

So here's my question to the unmarried readers:
Would you prefer to see into the future who or when it is you will marry?

And to the married readers:
Would it have changed anything if you had known who or when you would marry?

Yeah...I wouldn't have wanted to know when or who. You change anything in a scenario and you possibly effect outcome. Its like smashing a fly in the past while time traveling and finding out you destroyed an entire continent.

That doesn't make sense at all.

I would have not wasted my time being jealous of the other girls Blake was dating had I known I would eventually end up with him.

I frequently ask our magic eight ball who my future husband will be and when I'll get married. But I think the whole magic eight ball deal is flawed.

But I don't want to know. Makes the anticipation more fun, I think. Problem is, what if it never happens?!?

If you could see who it would be, couldn't you divine from that when it might be? Like, if I saw a really old woman I would guess I was getting married in a long time.

In response to Brigham's comment, I'll say that you could also probably have a good idea about who you're going to marry if you know when it will be.

For example, if someone had told me I was going to get married last spring, I know who it would've been . . .

Anyway, to the point. I am single, so I guess I have to answer the question you posed to singles. And I'm not going to be all, "No, I don't want to know . . ." Of course I do! It might affect my decision, like it does in that one early 90's movie with Marissa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr., but I don't care. I want to know who!

I would like to know just so I can stop being fickle about stupid boys that won't mean anything to me down the road. But at the same time, being fickle provides entertainment in my otherwise humdrum life.

It would have been way easier fighting off those dang boys that wanted to marry me so bad! I would of worn a huge t-shirt with Brooks' face on it and huge letters saying, "Love me now. Lose me to him in 2005!"
