Now understand, I will share my pain and problems, mainly to prevent someone else from going through the same situation or show them that it’s possible to get past it. However, I don’t know anyone that wants their dirty laundry aired, especially right in the moment.
Today I can say with conviction that becoming a mother is such a beautiful and natural thing that no woman should ever be penalized for, but it is naive to pretend as though things don’t change.
Whether you have the same butterfly feelings for your significant other today as you did when you first began or you have to do the work to maintain your relationship, appreciate what you have.
After being married for almost nineteen years, I have learned many things that I believe would have helped me before marriage. Therefore, I want to be sure to relay the message to anyone else just getting started.
Have you ever heard couples saying “When you know you know” as a response to how they knew they were in love? How about “life is too short” as a reason for tying the knot abruptly?
If you are just beginning to date, have been dating for a while, you’re engaged, or you have nothing more than the thoughts of being a spouse someday, please ask yourself these questions and be honest with your responses.
These are just a few (of many) comments associated with ‘marriage’ because let’s face it, perfection in relationships is something only Hollywood can create.
I can’t say that our problems are so terrible that I need to walk away, but man, I tell you, they make me second guess those ‘I DOs’ sometimes! That’s when I have to remember Bigmama’s “Pray and Stay!”
As simple as it may sound, we are as much to blame as our spouse for how we interact with one another. From the beginning, we must be very careful with what we overlook and let slide.
People are not relaying the message that you can’t get a divorce, but instead, they are saying that they choose to stay and work through their issues.
