Marriage has its up and downs.
It’s never seems to be a smooth road.
Instead there are some bumps and a couple of huge potholes.
I love being married to my husband but I will admit the last couple years have been a challenge.
We were slowing drifting apart.
All week we work different schedules and never see each other.
Every weekend he made plans which did not include our family.
I would sit there and feel frustrated!
I couldn’t comprehend his decisions.
It was more important that he go fishing, bowling or play in his band.
When I asked him about it he said I could go with him.
Last time I remembered both parties should have a say in the decision.
I am willing to bend but everything should not be on his terms.
A couple weeks ago we were going out on a date night.
He asked if I minded if tomorrow he went out with his friend.
I exploded! I could not believe we were spending time with each other and he was thinking of his friend and not me.
As we were arguing I told him I was worth everything and he should want to spend time with me.
If his attitude did not change then he could get out.
I understand he loves me.
But is love always enough?
If I wanted to be by myself I would not have gotten married.
We have slowly climbed out as a couple.
He is a great man and loves me.
And I see he is trying to do right by our family.
The weekends have been better because he is making time for us!
I will never accept less when I know I am worth so much more!
The past couple of weekends have been family time and we have both tried to focus more on each other.
It has given me a better outlook.
A little bit more strength and lot more happiness.
Love stays but people change.
I do love him!
We need to make time for us!
