When I saw this marriage link up on Mandy’s blog I knew I wanted to join in. Last week the topic was how you got to where you are now. You can read our story here. This week’s unofficial topic is Struggles. Thankfully John and I have not had many struggles. Nothing pops out at me when I think about that question.
I thank God that my marriage has always been easy. I’m not saying that everything is perfect. Of course we have our fair share of arguments and disagreements. But they are usually silly and we figure it out. We have learned to communicate and I don’t let things build up. If I have an issue I let him know about it.
From six months into our relationship we have lived away from our family. So from the beginning we have had to lean on only each other. If we have an argument I can’t just leave and go to my parent’s house. Especially now being 1000 miles away from our family you become each other’s everything. Of course we have friends but it’s not the same. Our relationship is super strong. It has to be to live the life we live.
We are crazy about each other. I am more in love with him today than I was the day I married him. We even renewed our vows last year for our 5th wedding anniversary. I want our love to always be at the forefront of our relationship. I want to set the best example I can for our boys. I am proud that we have such a strong, healthy, loving relationship.
We compliment each other very well. John is the sane one and keeps me grounded. I thank God every day for putting John into my life. I am truly blessed that we have such an amazing relationship. I don’t have any secrets or tricks to a healthy relationship. I just love him like crazy and I’m not afraid to show him. I put his best interest in front of my own, as he does mine.
This song says it perfectly :)
