"The kind of marriage you make depends upon the kind of person you are.
If you are a happy, well-adjusted person,
the chances are your marriage will be a happy one.
If you have made adjustments so far with more satisfaction than distress,
you are likely to make your marriage and family adjustments satisfactorily.
If you are discontented and bitter about your lot in life,
you will have to change before you can expect to live happily ever after."
(Evelyn Duvall and Reuben Hill - - When You Marry)
Five years. Yes, we’ve been married for five years now!
At five years, I learned & fully understand that a husband-wife relationship is very much different from a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship.
At five years, I already understand why our parents always remind us that before going into this relationship, we must be financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually prepared. In other words, both spouses must already enjoy their singlehood to the fullest.
At five years, we still stick to our agreement not to say too negative things against each other that a simple sorry / hugs and kisses cannot heal. Better yet, manahimik nalang!
At five years, our greatest joy and achievement so far is having our precious daughter.
At five years, despite our personal differences, we are trying everything to become a better couple & parent to our kid.
I know this marriage is still too young and will definitely have a very long way to go, a lot more of adjustments to go thru and some more arguments/disagreements to solve. But through thick & thin, we will continue to hold on to each other, will conquer everything in the name of love and will make this relationship work till death do us part.
Happy 5th Anniversary to my dear husband.
