Marriage is hard...

But I wouldn't trade it for the world.

I don't care what anyone says or pretends to be, marriage is hard and it takes a lot to not give up. I feel as if you are tested more once you are married and is no fun. As a teenager I fantasized on how married life would be. Today I can honestly say that this is another full time job to have. Add kids in the mix and you have overtime jejeje. I can also say that the good always outweighs the bad and just as a reminder here are some quotes I've mentioned on my monthly wedding anniversary post.

1. "I didn't married you because you were perfect. I didn't even married you because you gave me a promise. That promise made up for your faults. And the promise I gave you made up for mine. Two imperfect people got married and it was the promise that made the marriage". - Thornton Wilder, The Skin of Our Teeth

2. "More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse.
~Doug Larson

3. For better or worse,
For richer or poorer,
In sickness and in health, 
To love and to cherish,
Until death do us part.

4. "Love like you'll never get Hurt" 

5. "The kind of marriage you make depends on the kind of person you are. If you are a happy, well-adjusted person, the chances are your marriage will be a happy one. If you have made adjustments so far with more satisfaction than distress, you are likely to make your marriage and family adjustments satisfactory. If you are discontented and bitter about your lot in life, you will have to change before you can expect to live happily ever after". -Evelyn Duvall and Reuben Hill

6. "There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal, no door that enough love will not bridge, no wall that enough love will not throw down, no sin that enough love will not redeem... It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough, you could be the happiest and most powerful being in the world..." Emmet Fox

7."Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years". -Simone Signoret

8. "The quality of love and the duration of a relationship are in direct proportion to the depth of the commitment by both people to making the relationship successful. Commit yourself wholeheartedly and unconditionally to the most important people in your life". -Brian Tracy

9. "In marriage, each partner is to be an encourager rather than a critic, a forgiver rather than a collector of hurts, an enabler rather than a reformer". -H. Norman Wright and Gary J. Oliver

10. "Love seems the swiftest but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century". ~Mark Twain

Now go give your husband a kiss for choosing you.
