I love the way my marriage makes me feel secure. I have a husband who is calm, centered and free of drama. He’s there, day in and day out and it gives me a rock to cling to when my world is a bit shaky.
I love the way my marriage makes me feel grown. When I can sit with my husband and have a discussion about something that used to be a heated topic, I can attest to our growth and our willingness in the past to work out these kinks in our relationship.
I love the way my marriage gives me a mirror. I see myself reflected in my husband’s moods. If he comes home and seems like he lost some pep in his step after he crossed our threshold, then I need to check something about the atmosphere or the attitude I’m presenting. But if he seems to sink into the comfort of his home after a long day, I know I’ve done something right.
I love the way my marriage makes me feel like I can just “go for it.” I feel pretty confident that no matter the outcome of a particular situation, there’s nothing we can’t bounce back from, so why not take that chance?
I love the way my marriage gives me hope for my children. My children are 5 and 3 but they know what a happy, healthy marriage looks like and that gives me hope that they will absorb our lessons and use them to develop happy, healthy relationships in the future.
I love the way my marriage teaches me the importance of selflessness. We’re all selfish people at our core – it’s key to our survival. But keeping my relationship with my husband strong requires me to, at times, put his needs before my own. I have to keep in mind that the two of us need to be aligned with what the other person needs and then do our best to fulfill those needs.
