Through It All

I've been with my man for going on 6 years now. We've been ripped apart against our will, separated by choice, married, divorced, and are now living together happily with our beautiful daughter. I couldn't ask for anything more than what my life has become in this moment. There were times when we were apart that I thought I'd never truly be happy again and would have to plaster on a fake smile and make due with emotionless sex from people I tried to love. Now we are stronger than ever despite everything that has happened in our lives. We may get married again, but I'm not sure if we want to. Our first ceremony was not legal, just a spiritual ceremony. The legality of marriage is part of what brought our relationship down. Not that it was entirely it. We have been through a lot and I've put him through **** and he's put me through ****, but in the end we loved each other still and maybe more so because of it all.

Marriage is just a piece of paper. I know people who have been together for a long time and have the strongest relationships and have no intention of getting married. What I want to do is have a sort of pagan hand fasting ceremony at our 10 year anniversary. Whether or not we decide to legally tie the knot again makes no difference to me. I know I'm loved and I know I love him. There's no doubt in my mind that we won't be together for the rest of our days. I don't need a piece of paper or tax write off to tell me that.

*Edit* I'm thankful we didn't get married again. Maybe it's naive of me to think that people will actually change when they say they will and things can get better.
