@alishaloo:  I can’t believe it’s been more than a year for you already! Happy Belated Anniversary!

I think your observations are really good. I had some similar experiences. I did not marry young, but I can relate to many of the things that you said. Marriage (and all of the changes that came with that for me, including relocating and becoming a stepmother to multiple children) was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my life. You’re right. There are days when it’s really hard.  Yet, my DH and I have grown together, too, and I am not the same person I was before marrying him.  Each day is a new adventure, and, although there have been challenges to overcome and sacrifices to be made, I know that I am SO incredibly blessed to be married to my wonderful husband and to be a part of this very special family! 🙂

I hope you have many, many more years of joy ahead of you!

Great advice, thank you! I married young (I’m 21, he’s 24) so it’s nice to see someone telling it like it is. Of course it’s difficult, but nothing worth having in life comes free. Happy belated anniversary!

That is awesome and thanks for sharing… I am an older bride, 45 years old to be exact, never been married and my hubby was divorced with three daughters, two of which are grown and the other a tween.  He has a Psycho ex wife, but I wouldnt trade anything for the journey I have had or the experiences he and I have had and we grow closer and closer everyday. NO it is not always easy, but I think it is so worth it.


One of the things we committed to do annually was to go on a marriage retreat ( this in additon to any vacations we might take).  We go on our first one on our two month annivesary.  We won the retreat on a local radio station by telling our stories.

I think if more peoiple recognized marriage was never meant to be oh we get married and all is wonderful… it is the beocming one of two people, it is the shedding of self and being concerned about the other party, it is about self sacrafice.  As my hubby and I say, “We try to out love each other daily”.
