Answer for question 4523.

What's been the best decision you've made in your life so far? What's been the worst? Do you generally consider yourself a good or bad decision maker?
What's the best decision I've made in my life so far? Marrying my husband.

It was a very difficult decision: we had known each other all of five months (been dating for four of those) when my boss told me that the company would be moving across the country and that I was one of the five people chosen to move with it, if I wanted. I wanted to keep the job and I wanted to move to the area of the country we were going to, so I said yes immediately. I then told my then-boyfriend that I was moving and I was not going to pass up that opportunity, and he said, "Then let's get married." Three months later, we got married, and three days later, we started driving to our new life.

That was nineteen years ago. It was very difficult to commit to such a thing - saying yes, I'll partner for the rest of my life with this person I've known for five months. But I have not regretted one day of it.

Am I a good decision maker? Yes. I consider all of the relevant information details and make firm decisions. I don't waffle. Do all my decisions work out in my favor? Hell, no. Of course not.

I'm with you on that one! Best decision ever to marry my husband, my best friend. We've been through some really tough times, along with three children, but here it is, almost 30 years later, and I don't regret it at all! The kids are turning out all right, too... so I suppose that was another set of good decisions! I guess I'm pretty good at decision making, then!
