Marriage Is ....


*Compromising Even When You Know Your Way Is The Right Way

*Sharing When You Bought Two Slices Of Pizza For Yourself

*Smiling When All You Really Want To Do Is Choke Him

*Agreeing To Disagree Because No Matter What He Tries He Can't Convince You

*Teasing Your Love About Their Bigger Butt Because Of The Non-Stop Ice Cream Indulgence But Not Taking It Personal

*Eating What Your Love Made Even When It Taste Like Crap

*Loving The Way Your Spouse Lights Up When He Finds Something Hilarious

*Friendship That No One Could Ever Understand But The Two Of You

*Loyalty Because Even When She Is Wrong, No One Else Should Tell Her But You

*Honesty, Even When It Might Hurt His Feelings

*Doing The Laundry When You Don't Want To

*Using Your Cellphone As Light When Entering Your Bedroom, In Order Not To Wake Your Other Half Up

*Being So Mad At Him But When He Gets Up To Leave The Room To Allow You To Calm Down, You Make Him Sit Right Back Down Because You Would Rather He Be There Than Not

*Cleaning The Cat Poo Even Though You Know It's His Turn

*Hot Sex Whenever You Want It BUT Not Whenever He Wants It ;)

*Knowing That Life Without Your Love Would Be Unbearable

What is Marriage to you?

Hi, I found your blog through Mackey Madness :)

I'm not married, so can't contribute, but hopefully one day not too far off I will be married. I love your list though, it sounds like you're making your marriage both fun & happy!

Can't wait to read more of your blog!

"Being So Mad At Him But When He Gets Up To Leave The Room To Allow You To Calm Down, You Make Him Sit Right Back Down Because You Would Rather He Be There Than Not"

My husband and I are recently married (two months on the 25th!) and in our 2 years of dating/being married I've found that this is the most true. As a woman, when I get angry or upset I want Josh to BE THERE and argue it out with me. I know that arguing with the person you love isn't the most enjoyable thing in the world, but in my mind, arguing it out is at least SOME form of communication and it allows me to see both of our points of view rather than just my own.

I'm not married so I have no input but this has gotten me all dreamy even at 3pm in the afternoon, lol. I think by now I should know that marriage isn't always a bed of rose's, still it would be nice to discover what its like by ones self and not constantly having to read up about it or hear about it from other people. Patiently....impatiently waiting :)

Nini said...

I loved every single one of these and literally most apply to us....lol. Marriage is simply divine...knowing that you have found that one person, to share your life with!

....knowing that you can live without him, but you choose not to.

Tami said...

Answer: Unconditional love.

And you explained it perfectly.

I <3 you! Great post. Also, something that our pastor told us that will always stick with me: Marriage is not both of you giving 50% to equal a whole relationship. It will most certainly fail. It's both of you giving 100%.

Love is being able to make him smile or laugh even when he is pissed off!

Love is knowing what each other is thinking by just looking at each other

Daughter of Her King said...

Marriage in itself means alot of things to me.

But In summary Marriage means:
a)Fulfilling one of many God's visions.
b) Willingness to share my freedom with someone that I know is worth all the energy, time and devotion.
c)Going on an adventure that can be so elevating, fulfilling, demanding, challenging, loving, memorable, sweet, annoying, awesome and most importantly accountable.

First time here btw.... loves the blog...
