Square 9: Marriage
Marriage, for me, is a continued, constantly evolving blessing. I know that this is not the case for everyone, but that makes me feel even more fortunate. I met my husband later than some -- I was 28 at the time. I am so grateful that we met when we did. It was one of those situations you sometimes hear about: we just "knew." It wasn't a matter of if we'd get married, but rather when.
In almost 13 years, we've been through a fair amount of better (two beautiful children, wonderful trips and fun experiences, companionship and support) and worse (the loss of jobs, death of loved ones, losing our house to a catastrophic flood). Through it all, we've been a great team, and we've faced it all, together. Which is the essence of what marriage should be, I think. You face life, the good and the bad, as a team.
