I never have before. But I am starting to change my mind about it.
I am pretty sure my SO is my soulmate. We have been together for 9 years now. We have 3 children together. We have been through hell and back, worse than most of you could imagine. No matter how mad he gets at me or I get at him, we always forgive each other and our love gets that much stronger. He's my rock. He's my world. We took a break from each other, we both saw other people, but we couldn't let go of each other completely. We were drawn back together. I realize now that he IS my family. He is who I am meant to share my life with. Family doesn't turn their backs on each other. And family is supposed to forgive each other. He's never done anything that would be considered unforgivable, I was just stubborn and thought i could live life better without him.
My family and friends may be disappointed and may not understand, but I can't imagine going any longer without him. --- No they do not know yet. We've been back together for a week now. My mom knows a little about it, I wanted to get advice from her before i made this decision, but she isn't too excited about it.
My kids are much happier now too. It really hurt them to see us apart. I am happy that they are happy. And i can't wait to finally marry him! I do have stipulations for us being back together... the major thing is contributing income and helping out with the kids and house.
So what's your opinion? do you believe in soulmates? Do you believe you found yours?
