This man, I married 11 years ago on a Tuesday, November 22, 2005.
We tell people we met in college via an accounting class – it’s true – but it was an online class I had already dropped by the time he contacted me through messenger.
Months later, January 1, 2005, we met face to face. It wasn’t love at first sight or I just refused to see love. Even at the young age of 24, I was just over the love thing. An unhealthy and abusive relationship since sophomore in highschool had a lot to do with it. How could relationships get so bad?
So I meet this guy and he wants to love me and it wasn’t just the typical I love you to you know what. He wanted to take care of this broken, fragile, crazy, non-trusting, cold and yet emotional girl inside. He did all the right things. I kicked it around like it was a temporary joke of his. How could someone be so loving? Seriously, loving, every single day?
I guess because I wouldn’t take him seriously, he proposes a couple of months later. I still didn’t take him seriously. He was proposal #3. This is no game or contest. I said, you know what marriage is, right? It’s forever until we die even if you hate me and I hate you very much. Leave if you can’t do that. He stuck around.
Nov 22, 2005, because we both had a day off, we had this DIY, basic wedding, reception was at a restaurant we really liked eating at. We don’t even have wedding pictures. I fell asleep 😴 once I hit the bed on our wedding night 😂.
11 years now. He has shown me love that I never knew existed. Many times I’ve asked, how can marriage be so amazing? We don’t have the picture perfect things but this man and me, we are like cookies and milk. God is so good. And just like our wedding night, I fell asleep before he gets to the room. Sorry honey, you know I love you.
What’s your love story? I have heard all kinds and I have learned that no matter how it starts – whether it be fairy tale – or not so pretty, the more important part of it all is the journey that the people in it take. Commemorate the moments, celebrate the big wins as well as the little wins. Take the time to appreciate the milestones along the way.
