This essay is a major part of my life, and it means the world to me. So I want to share my experience of me getting married and/or being married. I will be informative with how it came to where I am today of being married and how I have learned from prior mistakes that was made in my life. And I will also tell how our love for each other has grown stronger and how we have become closer in our path of life. This is a hard journey to accomplish and make it last a lifetime.
I was young and had lots to learn about being married and becoming a wife, the thought I had in my mind that marriage was supposed to be easier, as they make it look in fairy tale stories. I then realized it was not so easy. I was married to a man that never took marriage seriously and it affected our relationship drastically. Our marriage lasted for only six months. In those six months he refused to work to support our family. After several months of financial struggle, I woke up one day with the realization that my sons and I did not deserve this type of life. I decided to move on and search for someone who valued a marriage the same way I did. When I think back on when I first met my husband, it still gives me butterflies.
Our first encounter was while we were doing laundry at a local laundry mat. I was standing there folding clothes and when I looked at him I felt my heart melt, like a hammer to a nail in a board. . A few days had passed and my friend introduced the two of us. I thought for sure it was love at first sight. He was so sincere and respectful to my home. He would ask me questions about my boys and things that I was interested in and what my hobbies were. Our marriage has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. It has taught my husband and I many lessons and values that have brought us closer together and our love stronger.
Our marriage began on a warm sunny day. Driving to the courthouse, I could feel my heart pounding so hard as though it was going to beat right out of my chest. It felt like butterflies fluttering over a breezy meadow. The closer the time got for us to say our sacred vows to each other; my heart felt like a rose blooming endlessly. As I turned to him and the judge pronounced us man and wife, I felt like I was on cloud nine. Our marriage is full of surprises and happiness. The blessings of our marriage began when we were blessed with another son. We learned a true lesson on how to be the best parents that we could be to these boys. I could tell he was scared about being a father.
He is a wonderful father to the boys; he loves to go out and shoot basketball, and kick around a soccer ball with them in the yard. He tries to be a decent father figure in their lives. Being able to teach the boys right from wrong is another lesson for us to learn as couple. There are times he has to discipline them for things that they do wrong. We always do our best to work as a team to work out our disagreements. I found for us to work as an effective team, we have to listen to each other’s perspectives and find the pros and cons to our disagreement. The present is here, the future is to come with more blessings for our marriage.
Every time I look at my husband, he still continues to make my heart race. I am unsure the road that lies ahead of us, but I am sure my husband will hold my hand every step of the way as we continue to grow and learn together. My husband and I have a powerful bond between us, as we have an unbreakable trust. We know each other’s limits, how to make each other laugh, and how to work well as a team.
I know deep down in my heart that our marriage will last a lifetime. We have learned much about each other and realized how our marriage is a true blessing to us. I would have never picked any other man to spend the rest of my life with. When I look at him in twenty years, I’ll still see his charming smile; that very smile that took my breath away in the first moments we met. My husband is my present and future. We are two halves that make a whole. With his half, he is the one that truly makes our family complete. He has helped me become a better person, given my sons stability as a father and it has been a true blessing being married to this man.
