What is Marriage?

No comments

Marriage is shouting “WHAT!?” at each other from across the house all day.

Marriage is not knowing how to wash certain pieces of their clothing but thinking that well, they shouldn’t have put them in the laundry basket if they needed special treatment anyways.

Marriage is witnessing your child prefer their father over you even though you carried them for nine months, breastfeed them during the day and in the middle of the night, respond to every cry and whimper, and change all the dirty diapers because they make Dad gag.

Marriage is having canned greetings when you answer a phone call from one another.

Marriage is wishing that just once your spouse would actually pick where they wanted to go for dinner instead of enduring the back and forth “I don’t know, what sounds good to you?” for two hours.

Marriage is watching your spouse dirty up a bunch of dishes and knowing you’re going to be the one washing them later.

Marriage is wondering why your spouse chooses to watch videos on their phone with the volume at 10,000.

Marriage is being slightly resentful over the fact that it takes you half an hour in the mornings just to look like a polished turd, while your spouse just has to get out of bed and wet his hair in the sink, and looks like an attractive human.

Marriage is listening to your spouse vent about the technicalities of their work even though you have no idea what they’re talking about.

Marriage is being continually grateful for the limitless love you have between the two of you.

Marriage is now knowing why God told you “No” to everyone else you dated those many years ago.

Marriage is having a life partner with which to go through the good and the bad.

Marriage is looking at your spouse and knowing there is no one else in the world who could take their place.

Marriage is thanking God that He made him your child’s dad.

Marriage is beautiful.

Marriage is sacred.

Marriage is the best thing that ever happened to me.
