Work Is Right

I have always worked on my marriage.  In the beginning i was typical of being "new in love"  It has been proven that the body of a person who considers themself in love will make certain chemcial changes.  These chemical changes last for 12 to 18 months.  For those 12 to 18 months you are madly in love and would not consider being with another person in any way shape or form.  And then they wear off.

That is where I got in trouble.  The chemical changes wore off.  I got drunk a few times and did things I really shouldn't have.  I guess her chemical changes lasted longer than mine, she really should have thrown me out.  I believe she kept me around to help raise the children.  She says she has forgiven me, maybe, but she certainly hasn't forgotten

So I worked harder on my marriage, maybe not always, but again if she had problems with what I was doing or wasn't satisfied I had changed enough she should have thrown me out then.

And then the illnesses and injuries started and again I tried to prove I was worhty of being married to her.  Now she is better and thinks my opinion isn't worth much.  You can work on your marriage all you want, but if you don't get credit it doesn't matter

I must be doing something right because she said 2010 was the best year she had for a very long time. She still hasn't forgotten (nor probably forgiven) my indiscretions, but she does seem to have a smile on her face more these days
