Today, my husband and I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and a lot has happened since we got married. Our lives have changed beyond recognition especially now that we have the Small Fry. But after five years, our marriage is just getting better and stronger every year. I always find myself loving my husband as much (even more actually) today as the day we got married and I can honestly say that I have an awesome and happy marriage.
Now, I know some of you may be inclined to roll your eyes and think I’m exaggerating. Some of you may even feel like I’m insensitively flaunting my happy marriage in total disregard of all those people who have a crappy marriage and don’t have an unconditional love in their lives but today is another milestone in my marriage and I’m celebrating!
Some of my friends often tell me that they want a marriage like mine and would ask me how to get one? I honestly don’t know what to say because I think that every marriage is very different and faces their own unique set of challenges. All I can say is that Michael and I does not have some kind of secret recipe for having a happy marriage and keeping it fun over the years. We simply put God in the center of our marriage and we make the choice to love one another every day of our lives. Trust and working together is what makes our marriage thrive. Being able to solve problems together and work toward solutions together through good communication. We’re a good team is what family and friends would often describe us. Now, it’s not always good times, we also fight like everyone else but we pick our battles and we never ever go to sleep mad at each other.
