Random question: When you picture your wedding, or having kids, or any other aspect of being married or otherwise in an adult long-term relationship, is the person you picture yourself with always the same, or does it vary from one imagining to another?

(The answer to this question is obvious for those of you already married or already in a long-term relationship, and it's almost as obvious for those of you who have been dating someone for more than just a few months. I'm more curious about the answer for those of you who are single, who are near the beginning of a relationship, or who are dating around or whatever.)

When you imagine yourself married/partnered/whatever, is it usually with the same person?

Yes, almost always (and I'm single or have been dating someone for less than 8ish months).
Yes, obviously (because I'm already married or in a long-term relationship with that person).
Yes....and it's someone other than my spouse or current long-term partner. (Shhhh, don't tell!)
No, the other person varies.
This doesn't apply to me, because I never picture myself married or partnered in that way.
