Honestly, I personally do not understand what’s all the hush hush about marriage anyway. Well..I do get that the personal details should be kept within your own walls, but pretending like all marriages are always peaches and roses is a big no no in my book.
Who really cares what a “no, no” in my book is right? Right. But…of course, I will cary on. Cause ya’ know, I’m a chatter box.
Truth be told all marriages are a work in progress. I love my husband with every ounce of me and couldn’t imagine this life without him, but like most couples we have our cycles. If you ever have the opportunity to speak with a married couple honestly and openly, they will tell you exactly what I’ve just said.
Last night as Peter and I were sharing thoughts on our relationship progress, our growth as a family, and our growth as individuals, we shared one of our best moments we’ve had as a couple. It was one in which we both had one of those “ah ha!” moments. Our newest “hump” in our marriage has been working through us, as we work through work. We’ve learned in the process that our choices for our careers are just that, choices. But we didn’t choose to fall in love. As cheesy as it may sound, our hearts did it for us. I can’t stop, nor do I ever want to stop the feeling I get when I spot his smile across a room. Or the way I feel in the middle of the night when he grumbles in his sleep, rolls over, pulls me tight, and tells me how much he loves me. My point is this; there are times that we, just like every other married couple have our moments. We are young parents, young lovers, young best friends, with both of our careers taking off full steam ahead of us. Little “humps” here and there are inevitable in any relationship. But, as long as you(meaning us), keep the line of communication open, and fully understand that almost every relationship is going through those aforementioned cycles and “humps”, then your marriage is just like the rest of us. 😉
*Footnote: Peter and I are doing great, and are in our “madly in love” cycle as of late. I’d just thought I’d share some real marriage thoughts for those of you who feel like all bloggers portray their relationship as perfect. Perfect doesn’t exist.
