Yesterday marked the 11 year anniversary of my first date with my husband. We’ve been through our share of ups and downs over those 11 years, and honestly, right now we are still working through one of the down spells. These times are tough, but I suppose most marriages go through this, so I take heart at knowing we are not alone and only time will tell how the story ends. In the meantime, we are working hard on expressing our love and reconnecting and having experiences together in order to create more memories for us to hold onto during the tough times. More physical intimacy, more planning of vacations together, more “us” time being made the priority… it’s all important to the survival of our marriage and our family, so we are giving it our best shot.
How about you? Was there a point in your marriage or partnership that was tougher than others? How did you work through it? Or did you (or your significant other) decide that marriage maybe wasn’t right for you at all?
