23 Reasons Why You’ll Never Regret Marrying An Alaskan

Marrying An Alaskan - The Best Decision Of Your Life

 By: Courtney Dowd-Stanley 

Marrying an Alaskan means you’re not going to get your everyday average cup o’ Joe. No, no – it’s so much more than that. It’s like the best cup of coffee you’ve ever had, but never knew existed. Not even in your wildest dreams. When you sign on the dotted line and commit your life to a rugged, adventure-loving Last Frontier addict, you might as well consider yourself the luckiest person on planet earth. The jackpot of all relationships starts (and ends) with marrying an Alaskan. Not to be too cliché, but sometimes size does matter. And it just so happens that Alaska is the largest, most wildly undeveloped state in the nation. So why not saddle up and prepare to go big or go home? Chances are high that marrying an Alaskan will deliver you a lifetime of spontaneity and perseverance, with endless amounts of laughter.

Good pictures and comments, should mention state bird is the mosquito. Waving is not to say hello it’s to keep them out of your face. No mention of cold temperatures or how hot water evaporates when tossed at -30 or colder. But love the post. Since 1972 I’ve seen a lot but so right with you’re comments.
