I still remember how I met my husband. I remember how much fun we use to have and all the times that we would look at each other and bust out laughing. We still enjoy having fun with one another and we still look at each other and just laugh. But something in me has changed since then. I still love him and want to be married to him. I guess for me a huge part of it is that I don’t want to be like my mom and go through a bitter divorce. It took my mom years before she got over my dad and what the divorce did to her. Growing up I had to see her go through depression and just not knowing how she could take care of me. I also heard how angry she was at not getting any help from my dad. My parents were just married for seven years. I’m going on ten years next month. I don’t want to mess this up. I want to get this thing called marriage right. It has been a journey and it hasn’t always been easy. There were times when I just wanted to quit and walk away. But when you are married to someone who truly cares about you and is your best friend it’s hard to give up. You may not always like what they do but it doesn’t mean that you have to give up on them. I didn’t get to see what marriage was really like one on one. Growing up in a single parent home didn’t make me want to be married because of the thought of divorce and how I could end up. But now I realize it’s not like that. There are times when divorce is an option because of how your being treated. I’m learning how to be a much better wife. I’m trying to get it right.
