Waiting for Prince Charming

Question:
 
I actually came across the alice series when my sister picked up “Alice on her Way” at the library. I started reading and though I was a little confused, I couldn’t put the book down! Even though we started a little late, my sister and I are all caught up on the series and can’t wait for the next one. When “Alice in Charge” arrived at Border’s, we promptly drove to the store, each grabbed a copy, plopped ourselves on a chair, and immersed ourselves into Alice’s world for the next two hours, much to my mother’s displeasure.
 
While reading, I can’t help but feel envious of Alice and Patrick’s relationship. Both care deeply for the other and through ups and downs manage to stay on friendly terms. I’m currently seventeen and have had only one true boyfriend (but lasted only a month due to mixed feelings and i was unhappy) and I am longing for this type of relationship. If you don’t mind me asking, how long was it until you met your “prince charming?”  Thanks and again love the series!

I have never met a Prince Charming because I never looked for one.  I met and married a wonderful man whom I love very much, but there are no illusions that he is perfect, nor that he is always charming, nor does he expect that of me.  Both of us had been married before, so I was 27 when we married.  I’ve heard it said that the success of a marrige is not so much WHOM you marry as WHEN you marry.  What this is really saying is that if you marry when you are mature in your expectations and you know what you want out of life, you are far more likely to choose the right person for you.  I think there is a lot more romance coming your way, but, thank goodness, no “prince charming.”
