Recently, my husband and I celebrated our Fifth wedding Anniversary. 👰🏻🤵🏻💖
I had someone tell me congrats and how proud she was of us. She said, “I don’t hear of many young couples staying married that long these days.” 💔
Her words shocked me a little. How sad that we live in a world 🌎 that people so easily give up. 🙅🏻♀️ We are so quick to just give up when things get hard.
I’m not saying marriage is easy. I’m also not saying our marriage is perfect, but we work hard to keep it strong. 💪
We communicate and tell each other everything so that we don’t have built up anger, resentment and other feelings that can cause problems later on. 👫
It’s not always easy to love my husband, some days he really gets on my nerves and I have to choose to love him more that day. 💆🏻♀️ I also know he puts up with a lot of my crap and loving me isn’t always easy. 😬
Even when things are going great between us we still work hard on our marriage. Currently, we are reading “I said this, you heard that” in our small groups at our Church. 📚 It has really helped us with HOW to communicate better with each other based off the color of our personalities.
Five years later, we now have two kids under the age of two. It’s hard. 😳 It would be so easy to just focus on the kids and not work on our relationship.
Things are good, so why make time to work on it when I’ve got two kids who need me, dinner to cook, a house to clean and a business to run? 🤷🏻♀️
Because our marriage comes first. ☝🏼
Show your spouse each day that you love them. ❤️Even on the days they annoy you. 🤯
Don’t stop working on your marriage. 💑
⚠️ Things that are worth it, don’t come easy. ⚠️
