Marriage is a wonderful thing, a test of maturity, of love and endurance. How much you're willing to compromise plays a huge factor in the success of a marriage. It truly is a bond of two becoming one. Decisions are no longer made alone but as a unit. They don't only affect one individual but two. I know that as an individual who was very independent and dependent on myself adjusting to allowing my husband to be the "man" , was and still is a test of my will. Sometimes as a woman whose taken care of herself it's hard to let someone else do things for me. Marriage is a learning experience and I'm learning.
Marriage is far from a walk in the park, you have to put in work to make it work. Communication is key. You have to be able to talk about things that are bothering you and really make a conscious effort to improve the things that need improvement. For instance, I nag, sometimes...lol. So I'm learning to let some things go. I certainly am not perfect nor is my mate so something's just need to get swept under the rug. On the other hand never let something fester to the point of jeopardizing your relationship. Things that are really worh talking about should be discussed without hurting each others feelings. All in all, marriage is a beautiful thing, you have someone in your corner 24/7, I don't go through anything alone, my husband is by my side always and that's a great feeling.
