I have been married for almost ten years now. I love my husband and I really do love being his wife! However… I’ve come to realize that what I thought marriage would be like and what it is actually like are two completely different things — at least for me.
My first realization back in 2011, after just 1 year of marriage was a trivial one…or maybe not, depending on how you look at it. (Realization #1: The Kitchen Sink Becomes a Battle Ground). Since that time the content I wrote about varied. Some posts were funny, other posts were more serious, and still others fell in that grey area that is often hard to categorize. I wrote about the ups, downs as well as in-betweens of married life, but regardless I always tried to look at marriage from a positive perspective. In fact, my goal with this blog was to present you with a realistic, yet positive perspective of married life, and I hope that came across.
Fast forward to 2015 and I had written 84 realizations by this point!… And then I stopped – cold turkey. I was running out of things to say and my readers I feel sensed that. The blog wasn’t energizing me anymore so I took a break.
It’s now 2019 and something is calling me back to this blog. I’m energized by it once again.
I write this blog under the veil of anonymity, so I can be free to write about my experiences / thoughts / joys / challenges / journey in marriage. This is my story in marriage, and I hope in reading this, it resonates with you and that you will be encouraged to share your story with me and other wives.
Who is this blog for? This blog is for the wife who doesn’t have a “perfect marriage”, but who also don’t have a “horrible marriage”. For the wife who doesn’t quite ft into the “Happy Wives Club” but is definitely not in the “Divorce Court” club. For the wife who is just trying to be the best version of herself she can be in her marriage. For the wife who wants to do better, and who strives to do better, even if she may fail sometimes…or a lot of times. For the wife who loves her husband so much and wants to be married, but who sometimes finds the journey challenging. This is for you.
