“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with same person.”
Today marks my 2nd wedding anniversary with my hubby. They say it’s after the 1st year of marriage that marriage becomes a real challenge. Honeymoon stage is over and real life begins.
We did experienced minor life challenges along the way but we triumphed over it. We were parents for the first time and we didn’t know what to do. Add the obstacles of living in a foreign country. It was not easy.
But there we realize that marriage is about partnership. You must have the same ideals and goals to manuever through life. It takes resiliency, patience, trust, understanding and a whole lot of love.
It’s a nice feeling to know that you have someone by your side when everything or anything fails. Seeing my hubby and our son sleeping soundly beside and my heart would swell with so much love for my two boys.
Marriage is tough they say. We are still in our 2nd year and I know we have a long way to go. But prayers and faith are there to help us. And love, it all boils down to love.
I am not an expert on marriage or love but I will have another blog post advice for single women searching for love, so stay tuned for that. I have to apologize this week will be filled with lots of blog posts about love. Don’t barf. Don’t worry, I promise to keep it not too mushy.
To my life partner and my love, Happy 2nd Wedding Anniversary! Here is to many more… We can do this, hehe…
