Marriage

Falling In Love Again

Fall in Love…..

                                                  

Everyone says these words at some point in their lives. I’m falling in love, I fell in love, I’m in love etc What does it really mean. 

I’ve been married to my best friend for almost 11years and it has been a real live’s journey for us. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve forgiven, and we’ve held each other. It is commonly said that marriage takes hard work. It definitely does. It takes work to keep your marriage safe, peaceful, growing and fun. 

Marriages may sometimes feel dry, empty and ‘un-fun’….. It’s up to the two involved to decide to “work” to fill it back up with the fun, the sparks and the fire it once had. 

In the 11 years we’ve been married, I had days I had to remind myself why I married my husband, why I love him. It’s wasn’t always rosy but we choose to make it work. Life is stressful already, having to think of someone else, or other people if kids are involved, is even more. 

When couples fight/argue…. it’s ok if it’s done in a healthy way. But when it happens too often or when it’s toxic, it becomes unhealthy because it pulls the two apart and not together. My marriage has experienced both ends. Once upon a time, in the early yrs of our marriage, when we had very little clue on how to deal with struggles in marriage we fought many unhealthy fights. 11 years later we can look back and see how much we’ve grown and how much we’ve learned becuase we chose to WORK HARD, together. We chose to stay in love and fall in love over and over again. 

Choose to Fall in love with each other over again because you both will change, it’s life. you’re not going to be the same people you were when you first got married, and in a few years )If you choose to fall in love again) you will have a much better and stronger marriage relationship.

Always fight to get your love back just as you did when you were dating/courting. Always work hard to fall in love with your spouse again.

“Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.” – Ephesians 4:2-3
