Is he "the one"?

“Will you marry me?” were Nathan's words to me. “Yes, I said” (but with hesitation in my voice).

Why was I hesitating? We'd been dating nearly three years. It seemed only natural that marriage was the next step. What I learned as time went on, though, was that my uncertainty was not just marriage jitters. I questioned whether this engagement felt right. So I started listening to God to find out if this really was God's plan for me.

We set the wedding date for a year and a half away. I thought by then I'd be used to the idea. However, I began to ask myself a lot of questions. “Is this the right person?” ... “Am I doing the right thing?” I reasoned with myself that there wasn't anything wrong with marrying him. I assumed that every bride-to-be had asked herself these questions.
