I Love Him So...

I met my honey online. We dated long distance for a while before I relocated to be near him. We were engaged and married shortly there after. We have had our share of ups and downs, but I wouldnt trade him for anything in the world. I don't want to experience life without him by my side.

Often my friends, both married and single ask, "how's married life?". I think they are expecting me to gripe and complain about all the headache or dispair. But, I have nothing but positive and encouraging things to say. I think that too often people spend so much time preparing for the wedding that they forget to prepare for the marriage. It is not something to be taken lightly. I mean you did just vow to spend the rest of your life with someone, come hell or high water. That is a huge undertaking. But with the support of friends and family along with an undying devotion to God, it can certainly be done.

It is our 20th anniversary in October. That, in itself , is an achievement these days. But when people go on and on about "having to work at marriage", I am sorry. I don't agree!It might sound "old fashioned". But in our case, it was genuinely "love at first sight!".We got engaged after two weeks and married after 2 years.If you look on my blog, you will see that neither of us has two heads (except for me!) and are both professional people.We enjoy an active sex life and are not afraid of showing it, literally, to anyone that wants to watch us on holiday.It keeps our marriage fresh and faithful.As far as religion goes, I believe it has its place in society - as long as nobody tries to push it down my throat - or bomb the hell out of my country!That's fair enough...isn't it?KC(UK)
