I just celebrated my three year anniversary. I got into a little argument with my husband the night before and didn’t speak to him for 3 hours. This is a long time for me (I am a talker.) I posted a thread about our fight and there were a few other wives that commented and many said that they knew how I felt and were sorry I was having a bad day.
Marriage isn’t easy, is it? I love my husband very much, but sometimes I just don’t like him. We fight about silly things and sometimes we fight about important things. We usually always have to compromise and sometimes neither of us is truly happy with the resolution but we do it for our marriage and for our children. I am sure he would say the same thing, but would probably tell you I get my way more often than he does (which is probably true.)
I remember back to when we were dating and before we were married, it just seemed so much easier. It seemed like we were happy all the time and our fights only lasted a few minutes. You can’t tell what your future will bring and what struggles will come your way. You just have to have faith in your marriage and the decision you made in your partner.
I wish that marriage had a preview trailer. You know how you see a movie trailer and decide if you think it looks like a good movie? They should have that for marriage. You can see a few frames of the next couple years to decided before you get married if it looks good or not. I think the divorce rate would be much lower if you had to watch your own preview before getting hitched.
Even though my husband and I argue and have had some rough times, I couldn’t imagine spending my life with anyone else. If my trailer included a glimpse of my current life, I know I would want to watch the whole movie.
