How has this shaped your idea of romance and marriage?
How have these influenced your wedding planning?
As a child I loved Lady and the Tramp as well as Cinderella.
As a teen I loved the Scarlet Letter an odd lovestory, but one I understood because we often do not fall inlove with the person we should and there are all sorts of trials that arise out of loving the worng person and as a person for whom virginity was not in the cards it really came home to me. I always felt like I wore that A in school and even though noone knew it seemed like they did.
I fell in love with my now husband almost immediately, but like Emma, I thought he had his affections given to another and I tried to help him and her, but in the end I realized it was not her that he wanted, but me and boy did that make my day. It was so hard to given him the most honest advice, but I knew I had to and I knew if he were meant to be with me we would end up together. So the first 3 months after we met were spent with me trying to help them the way Emma was trying to Help Mr. Knightly and Harriet Smith.
This affected my wedding planning in that I decided against a large wedding, but instead had a simple affair and wedding cake.
I still prefer the simpler more genteel style wedding to the elaborate 150+ person attended weddings.
