When I finally get married I don’t just want to be a wife, I want to be so much more than that. I want something that I think a lot of people want but don’t quite realize they want.

While not everyone wants to get married, that is something I have always wanted but I don’t just want to cook, clean, and be a homebody. I want to be my partner’s best friend. I want to still remain somewhat independent and I want to explore so much more than what most might think a ‘wife’ should.

Sure, through the years what we think of when we see the word ‘wife’ has changed but there are still people out there in this world who think wives are nothing but babymaking house cleaners. I want to be the wife that you can come home to after a long day at work but also the wife that you can spend time with as if I was one of the guys.

I want us to be close and for us to smile, laugh, drink, and have fun together. I want you to tell me about everything that happens each day instead of just making small talk. I don’t want what a wife is at face value, I want so much more. I want you to know you can count on me even when the whole world is against you.

I want date nights, patience, heated arguments, and all of the silly moments that other people take for granted. I want you to know that above all else we have something special and I want to be treated as I am, your equal. I don’t want to be misguided or held back but instead boosted forward and told to chase my dreams all the while you’re chasing yours.

I want our love to be unconditional and raw. I want us to fall out and makeup in some of the most intimate and sensual ways. I know, some of this might sound silly and you’re probably thinking I’m overdoing it a bit but I’m not. Wives in this day and age even though progressed are still for some reason thought of as ‘less than.’

I want all that marriage has to offer but I don’t want to be thought of as wasting away. When I finally settle down and become a wife, I won’t just be a wife, I will be so much more than that. I will help in all the ways I can and I will never be afraid to hold my own.

You won’t have to question my intentions and you won’t ever feel like I’m slipping away as long as you treat me well. Love might be a bit hectic sometimes, but our marriage will be spectacular because we will both be on the same page. I want to be the wife that you deserve and someday, I will be just that and so much more. I will be your very best friend, above all else.
