Good on ya, mate! I was a devout bachelor for 60 years until I met my now-wife at our 40-year high school reunion in 2009. We started dating about 9 months later and got married 15 months after that. Best decision I've ever made (next to retiring early! ) We've only been married 15 months but it's been great. On our 1-year anniversary we celebrated by going fishing!! Gotta love a woman like that, right??? May God bless you, your intended and your upcoming marriage!
