Marriage, and what it’s made of…

Time… If you are lucky
Trial and error … If you care enough
Laughter…the only medicine
Sex….marriage was designed for intimacy
Tears… Some happy, some not
Fights
Passion
Comfort
Food. Spicy .
Colds and chicken soup
Coffee in bed or on the deck
Trust
Surprises
Many many Christmas Eve nights in front of a fire
Road trips
Roller coasters
Broken bones
Broken hearts
Safe places
Beaches where you plan the rest of your lives
Movies and popcorn
Weddings and funerals
Apologies
Secrets
The deepest knowledge of who your husband or wife is.
You SEEING me.

Marriage is this and so much more. It’s primitive and progressive. It’s the love in action. It’s a verb.
