is this feeling normal? the best way to describe it is "taking a plunge".

are these feelings normal that take a normal amount of time to overcome?
does the feeling go away if you just take the plunge?
nothing is a guarantee so maybe i need to stop waiting for the fear to go away and just accept that it takes courage to get married and to trust someone with all my heart. the fear won't go away completely, so i need to walk by faith. and not by fear. thoughts?
