At the end of December I posted some photos showing my husband and I through our nineteen year relationship. I didn’t really share any words, except to mention that life is very different now to how we ever imagined but that we are happy with that.
One of the comments on that post said they would love to hear my views on what makes a successful marriage and I thought why not, it is something I am very passionate about. Last summer I wrote a post titled ‘No one said it wouldbe easy’ and I outlined in that what a strong and lasting marriage is for me – “I didn't go into my marriage thinking that every day would be a dream, nor that I would always feel 'in love' with my husband every day. I fully realise that a good marriage is about hard work, compromise, upset, difficult decisions and angst as well as the flip side of joy, delight, companionship, support, respect and contentment.”
