But we learned a lot along the way - through courtship, engagement, and finally wedded bliss, there were a lot of lessons we were brought through on a crash-course ride through an area of life hardly anyone we knew had ever gone before. To boldly go. To love honor and cherish and hope to God this works.
So, just like the title says, our marriage is a kinda kick in the teeth to standard love theory and marriage statistics. We know its rare, we know its a good thing, and we want to help other young couples have the same happiness and fulfillment we have had. There is a large amount of kids our age out there (yes, I said kids. I've been married for 9 months, with a kiddo on the way in 3, and I still feel like a kid) who are going to go through or are going through similar stages of life we are, and we want to help them out as much as we can - kick over any bits of wisdom that might help. As well as encourage couples that have been married a good long time, but have forgotten the newly-wed highs.
So. Here we are. We revived the writing fire and started up a blog - a blog to journal our random thoughts, ideas and findings on life, love and relationships, through this crazy adventure we set sail on. Hoist the colors, brace the mainsail - this is going to be big.
Life is all about the relationships - our relationship with God, our relationship with our spouse, our relationships with our kids, boss, co-workers, extended family, the list goes on. You botch relationships, your outlook in life is pretty much toast. Unless you just play video games. Hit resume and just CG your way into oblivion.
So, we're here to pass on the little wisdom on relationships we've gathered, and just random pieces of our life we find amusing or humorous - because we all need a laugh now and then. We just want to share what we've learned, and hope it helps you as much as it did us.
And hey, if you're able to pick out some useful bits of info or nuggets from our ramblings - great. Two thumbs up, ten toes hanging.
If not, just sit back and watch the show - we can be pretty entertaining.
So, sit back and wait for our upcoming posts - we've got a lot simmering on the back-burner, just waiting to actually be typed out. Courting, love, in-laws, naughty whispered jokes, and all of the above.
