Yesterday as I walked up to Lamar and hugged him from behind, our cousin jokingly said:
“How long have you been married?”
I said: “for eight years.”
And she laughed and said: “You’ve been married for too long to still be acting like that.”
And I said: “Do you think you are supposed to get married and then all of your smooching and hugging and kissing will go away…..no way.”
Of course she was joking. But, I know that there are many people that really think that when you are no longer newlyweds, all of the lovey-dovey moments will go away. While it does happen in some marriages, it does NOT have to be that way.
