Happily Ever After

Big Spoon brought up "marriage" this weekend; what it means to each of us and what we expect. However, the conversation got way off base because I had been bottling up some personal worries and frustrations. We never finished our conversation about marriage simply because I had neglected - in our day to day life - to address these issues.

I sometimes find it easy to get wrapped up in planning and its good to have these reminders of the importance of our growth as a couple; reminders that keeping communication open is one of the keys to a successful relationship.

It's very early in our planning process and I hope that going forward, I can remember to just take time to talk, whether it be about how each of us are feeling, our careers, the wedding or anything. Simply put, it's important that we express our feelings - both good and bad.

  1. This is the joy of a long-term relationship. Nothing worth preserving is maintenance-free, as much as we'd all probably wish the contrary. Sure would make keeping a house together a lot cheaper ;)
