Ever experienced one of those a-ha! moments? It’s the kind of moment when something you should have realized (or known) a long time ago finally dawns on you.

I experienced one of those the other day. I was having a conversation (okay…tear fest) with my husband, and in the midst of this extremely emotional moment it dawned on me why my husband is a perfect match for me. He was the polar opposite of me on one particular personality trait. And while in the past, I often saw this opposition as an annoyance, something that would constantly rile me up, I now realized that it’s actually a good thing! …If both of us were the same way on this respective trait, it’d be a very stressful, tumultuous relationship! Thankfully, that is not the case.

It’s ironic though that it took me 3 year to figure this out (some couples tend to know these things right away–kudos to them). Then again, the conversation my husband and I had wasn’t one that would have come up in the past anyways. I firmly believe that people come into your life for a reason, a season and a lifetime. And although I believed in the lifetime part of marriage already, the reason(s…) two particular people come together (or are brought together) are definitely being revealed to me slowly the longer I am married. Have you found this to be the case in your marriage too?
