Having Fun In Your Marriage
People always tell my husband and I how happy we look together. Just yesterday, we were asked, “When are you two going to go ahead and get married?” My husband told the guy that we’ve been married for almost 3 years now, and he looked so surprised. His response was, “Wow, but you guys get along so well.” It’s nice that people can see and feel the love between us, but they don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. I’m not going to take you back there either. Just know that we have our trying times like any other couple. Our times may even be a little more intense, because we are colleagues, partners in our own business, spouses, and best friends. Sometimes, it’s difficult to take off one hat and put on another.
Maybe we look happy because we are just happy people. Several sources have published documents saying that marriage can’t make you happier. One article in particular stated that “marriage does not equal satisfaction”. Marriage is a choice to work together to blend two upbringings in one household. That takes work. “If you aren’t happy before marriage, chances are you won’t be happy in it.” Read the rest of the article here.
Regardless of our downfalls, we want to be happy, so we don’t allow ourselves to stay down for long. We laugh about something together everyday. We play and make little jokes with each other. Some say that we’re having so much fun, because we don’t yet have children, but I plan to stay happy even then.
I’m not sure why some people speak so ill of marriage. Marriage is a beautiful thing. I’d rather fight for something that will blossom and be blessed than to not put in any work and live in misery. Wouldn’t you?
How do you have fun in your marriage?
