The one rule we do follow is an important vow from our wedding. Among the promises we made that day was that we would be there for each other in sickness and in health. What we didn’t know is how little time we would have between “I do” and cancer.
Even then, even at thirteen, we both recognized that whatever it was between us wasn’t something everyone had. We knew there was something once-in-a-lifetime about the way we just got each other, the way we made it work. We knew that even though we were so different in so many ways, we were the same, too.
Sometimes the most important questions to ask are the ones that never see the light of day.
Having your guy treat you right is seriously the best thing since sliced bread.
I don’t love you like I used to because I love you so much more.
I have loved you even before I knew your name.
It’s really important to pick your battles. Do you really want to spend all that time and energy fighting over socks? Do you really want to have a three-day silent war just because someone forgot to turn off the lights before leaving the house?
Based on my experience in marriage, these are hilariously spot on.
I’m not the same man who wrote to you two years ago.
Trust is built when we are reminded that our partner is there for us. They reach out for us or grab our hand when we reach out for them. We realize our needs matter to our partner. We forget the details about our hurt, and the negative event in the relationship slips from our mind.
