- Wedding: March 2014
I’ve only been legally married for three months or so but it doesn’t feel any different than how it felt before we got married when we were just living together. Our relationship has had it’s fair share of challenges, though. We were long distance for most of it, but I think that only helped cement the importance of good communication. I also battled depression for the better part of a year before getting it under control, including a loss of sex drive, and coupled with panic attacks that emerged after seeing something that triggered previously under control PTSD. And on top of that, we had to deal with his father passing; we did a lot of leaning on each other in the first few months of living together. Now we’re battling money issues (I’m out of work right now and he’s the only income) and we’ll be moving back to his home country later this year.
All in all I’d say LIFE has been challenging but the RELATIONSHIP hasn’t been the cause of any of those things and has always been more of a solace than something to “work at” for us.
