When the wedding is over and the honeymoon comes to an end, reality sets in and you realize that you are married. The comfort of knowing that you will always have to put down the toilet seat will make any woman cringe and the comfort of knowing that you will be the errand runner to get sanitary pads is enough to make any man cry.
This is when you find out about each other; does your other half chew with their mouth open, snore when they’re sleeping, hog the blanket, and the list goes on. Your relationship will definitely consist of surprises when you finally become husband and wife.
Anything worth having is worth working for and marriage is definitely one of those things. I have seen so many couples that have these big weddings but they don’t make it to their one year anniversary because they are not in it for the long haul. Those vows that you take should not be taken lightly!
Anything that you want to last; you have to work at constantly. I have been married going on 8 years and I can truly say communication, trust, and respect has made our marriage stay balanced. Through sickness and in health; it’s not easy by a long shot we have had some bad days but because we love each other and have faith in God we push through.
In some relationships one thing goes wrong and they are ready to throw in the towel. I will honestly tell anyone, before you get married picture yourself with that person for the duration; good and bad days, joy and pain, laughter and sadness, dollars and pennies, health and sickness. If you’re willing to face those things together then your marriage will work, but if you’re second guessing those vows marriage may not be for you.
