They say that marriage comes in stages. The first stage is the honeymoon. This stage I’m not familiar with. All my friends stated that this stage lasts for 3 years. They state that you’re happy all the time, everything is wonderful and perfect all the time. During the first 3 years of my marriage, we moved from Virginia, Georgia and then to Louisiana. I feel like we didn’t have enough time to bond, to just go on vacations and just have peaceful bliss. We struggled for the first 3 years of our marriage. We argued a lot, we didn’t know how to communicate well. We were both trying to get used to living together and trying to get our personalities to match. So for me, the honeymoon phase didn’t exist in my marriage. But through the years I’ve learned what the honeymoon phase is all about. You don’t have to just have the honeymoon phase just at the beginning of the first 3 years of marriage. When my husband and I got into it last week I was hurt. Not talking to someone that you care about is painful. But when we made up, I can honestly say that I’m experiencing the honeymoon phase. We have talked, laughed and just been carefree since then. I’m learning to live in the moment with my marriage. It took a very low point in my marriage to understand what I’m missing. To some fixing, an issue in your marriage is out of the question. They would rather divorce or separate. But for me, I want to fight till I can’t fight anymore for my marriage. So if you’re like me and have never experienced the honeymoon phase don’t give up it will happen. And anyone thinking about giving up on their marriage, fight for it till you can’t fight for your marriage anymore. Anything worth having takes work. So work on it, I know that I am.
