As my seven year wedding anniversary approaches, I find myself contemplating marriage.  It saddens me that our society doesn't view marriage as the sacred vow God intended it to be. Since neither of us had good role models growing up, my husband and I have worked hard at redefining our understanding of marriage. Redefining marriage so that our girls can learn firsthand from us what a godly marriage is supposed to be, instead of having to struggle with it on their own as adults. In our decade together we have loved each other passionately and hurt each other deeply. We've tested each other, we've pushed each other. We've learned and we've grown and we've become better and stronger together. As individuals we still have our weaknesses. Weaknesses we talk about and work on every day. More important than our weaknesses though is the strength that we find in each other. And that's what it's all about. Adam had Eve because it wasn't good for him to be alone. And I have this man. This wonderful, infuriating, loyal, hard-working, funny, beautiful man. And he has me. Lucky guy :)

Very well written. I agree when our society is lacking the real examples it needs to cherish marriages. Both my husband and I didn't grow up w/ good role models for marriage so we both have had to redefine it as well.. Thanks for sharing this..Stopped by from the TOS Crew. Looking forward to getting to know you this year.
