The Person You Really Need to Marry by Tracy McMillan

Paradoxically I’ve found loving myself exactly where I am is the only way to get where I’m going.
— Tracy McMillan

Marriage is certainly not for everyone. Yet, for some people finding a soulmate and marrying them always seems to be a life-goal that is expected of you. For some people it’s a life long desire, and we can be driven by that need to find a partner. Certainly, for Tracy McMillan, who opens up with honesty and frankness about her life-story to date, this pressing need to marry someone was there from a young age. However, as Tracy has realised, there is a lot to be said for taking a step back from our pursuit for a partner… first, we need to marry ourselves.


What does this really take Tracy questions? First up, you have to get painfully honest with yourself. You have to commit. You have to love yourself, in the present moment. Watch on to find out the vows you could be making to yourself today and hear Tracy’s story… for better or for worse, in sickness and in health.

The thing about marrying yourself is not just about co-habitating… you’re not just gonna date for a while and see how it turns out. You’re going to do this till death do your part.
