When we were children we believed in fairy tales and happy ever after endings just like Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and many other fairy tales. However, as we grow older, we soon realise that situations in real life do not always turn out as we would of expected our fairy tale to.
When we are young and fall in love we can sometimes have too high expectations for ourselves. We would like everything to be perfect. We think of our future together forever and hope that one day we will in fact have a fairy tale wedding and therefore live happily ever after.
For most couples love and marriage can be a fairy tale. Waking up together in the morning looking for that first smile of the day. This alone can put you on a high pedestal for the rest of the day. Sharing breakfast together can also be fun. Then when you return home from work and cannot wait to see each other there is so much to tell one another that, without realising it, you are becoming closer and closer to each other. Also, the old saying that a problem shared is a problem halved can be so true as your partner may view things in a different light from how you have viewed them. Again, by sharing you are showing you can caring. Hence, a stable relationship is growing all the time. Live is such a wonderful thing.
When marriage is discussed and a proposal made we fall head over heels in love. We cannot wait to tell family and friends and get very excited about going shopping for an engagement ring or showing off the ring that was chosen or even handed down as a heirloom in the family. You are both on a high note for a long time as everyone congratulates you both on you engagement.

Couples may also wish to take their love and marriage fairy tale one step closer to a real fairy tale and decide to hire a pony and trap as a mode of transport to and from the church.
