I was reading a post by law-momma this morning and it made me think. In a good way. I really kinda loved it. Seriously. Here is an excerpt:
I think it boils down to this… marriage is only easy if you don’t love your spouse.
Don’t laugh at me, I’m serious.
If you don’t love your spouse, you don’t care what they do. You don’t care if they pay you any attention or if they cheat or lie or do any number of crazy things. You just don’t care. And because you don’t care, life is quite simple. You both live completely oblivious to the other one without a care in the world when it comes to how you are treated in the relationship.
But if you love each other? Dear God help you. Marriage is going to be one struggle after another.
It made me think back to our pre-marriage counseling session when the pastor said something along the lines of, "if you really love each other this isn't going to be easy."
Don't read between the lines. Everything is great at our house. Wait. Not great like the people that don't care enough, but truly great amidst the choas that is life with a kindergartner and a three-month-old it is fabulous.
Its just a thought. Oh, and dear God, help us.
