Yesterday was our 3rd wedding anniversary! I can't believe how much has happened since we stood barefoot in Byron Bay and watched the sunset as husband and wife. Having been together for 6 years before we got married, I just assumed that nothing much would change after the big day. Turns out, I was totally wrong - I should never have assumed anything. It's normal for relationships to have highs and lows but DANG, our first 18 months of marriage really tested us. We both had huge jobs which took so much of our efforts that we forgot to reinforce our relationship - just making it though each day as best we could. We were just existing, not living ... not ideal.
So, what changed? I decided to concentrate on supporting and loving my husband before anything else. To put him first and do anything and everything to help him. Best decision ever. I was so wrapped up in myself that I didn't realise how much he needed me. By making the decision to put him first, things became easier. We both re-focused and 18 months later we're much more solid than I could ever have imagined. For me, it was easy to fall in love with him but relationships that last for decades after the fall last because you choose your partner, every single day. Choose to celebrate, encourage and love them. Marriage, as it turns out is pretty magical. Who knew!?
