My first wedding anniversary is coming up this Friday and I am beyond stoked. It might have taken us almost 6 years to get hitched but we finally did it. And we did on our terms. And I already kicked off my anniversary week right yesterday by choosing happiness. (Read the post.)
I can’t put into words the overwhelming sense of pride and accomplishment that I feel to have made it this far. After all a lot marriages don’t survive their first year. So, this is a huge milestone.
How are we playing to celebrate you ask? Dinner, a little shopping, gift exchanging and a movie. And we’re choosing to share this joyous milestone with Moo and JJ. I know that a lot couples like to be alone on their anniversaries but we feel that it is important for us to show our kids that things like marriage need to be celebrated. Also, I come from a family where divorce and unhappy marriages is very high. I want to break that cycle.
There are things you can do to rekindle your marriage other than divorce and finding another spouse. I can tell you from experience that relationships are hard work and marriage is even harder. It’s not going to be all rainbows and sparks all the time. And there will be times when you feel like you don’t love your spouse anymore but remember love is more of an action than a feeling. You just have to be willing to follow through and not get caught up in a “The Grass Is Greener Complex.”
