1st year is the hardest....

The first year is the hardest. That is what everyone says - it makes you wonder if this is what you have to experience to appreciate real love and what marriage really means. Or if this is what you have to experience to understand what real love and marriage really means.

To all those veteran married couples. I applaud you - You have accomplished a feat that the devil tries to deter you from every second of every day.

Marriage is about loving when you don't want to love, about supporting the other when you feels you have no strength left. Marriage is about creating a cord of three strands that cannot be broken. Marriage is about unconditional love which entails hard work and is not easily created.

In merely 19 days - we have fought battles that many married couples see in time. The drama is life right now is overwhelming and we are meant to depend upon each other. Can i say that my first year of marriage experiences happened in 19 days and move on to the bigger and better things in life? or is this a reflection of how our next 19 years are going to be?

No time for each other and we don't even have a family yet.
A job that isn't willing to pay their employees and puts us in financial distress.
Loss of a job due to layoff.
Stress of the other working too much with no option to help support more.
Neighbor problems with homemade waterfalls and falling ceilings.
10 hour power outage which almost causes loss of food and sanity.
Family drama on both sides.
Longing to be healthy enough to enjoy the others company.

All of this in 19 days. Can we have peace for a while? But we still love each other....
Nobody ever said it would be easy - but nobody warned us it would be this hard. 346 more days to go.
