Marriage Is Long TermI've been married to the same woman for a long time. Over 30 years and still counting. I had a real story in my mind when I decided to post this but it suddenly eludes me at the moment. Mostly I just wanted to say a long term marriage is hard work and shouldn't be cast aside when things are perfect.
Is any marriage perfect? I seriously doubt that is possible. The dynamics of the relationship is always changing and I understand that but reestablishing your own perspective in a good way is difficult. I keep telling myself it'll get better. Will the desire she once had for me ever reappear again. Is this as good as it gets?
Then you sit back and wonder what we've accomplished so far in my lifetime and it can be quite amazing. Our grown kids still like us, if that's a good barometer then we've done something right. I still love my wife and believe she loves me... but its still just different. Can you really stay the same lomg term?
