Marriage is a beautiful thing! It’s when two souls become one. God designed marriage to be a special and sacred bond. It’s not always easy. It’s definitely a lot of hard work.
Wedding planning started to prepare my husband and I for real life because we had to make a lot of decisions and learn to compromise. Sure, we had to do this in the past as a couple, but it really strengthened us and made us stronger. We had to work through some problems, and help each other. I had to learn to give up my people-pleasing ways (it definitely paid off in the end). We’ve had a lot of struggles, but we’ve come out stronger. Marriage is so glamorized to look like this amazing thing with no problems. It’s long days at work, and coming home exhausted and not wanting to do anything. It’s arguing and not wanting to say you’re sorry or admit you’re wrong. It’s tough decisions and sometimes having to put your foot down and say no. Marriage can also be random slow dances late at night, watching your favorite shows and movies together, endless sleepovers with your best friend, date nights (which are so fun because they’re so rare), and so much laughter.
Marriage is hard work, but it has great rewards. I love having somebody there to encourage me, and help me grow. I made my vows to my husband 1 year and 5 months ago. I intend to keep those vows. I want to always love and cherish him for all the days of our lives together. I’m so happy God brought us together, and I’m excited for the many years to come. - 1 day ago
