I just realized that today is March 9th, the anniversary of the day that my hubby asked me to 'go steady' with him. Do you remember that romantic term? Seems they don't use that term any more.
We were both seventeen, and up until he met me, he had not 'gone steady' with anyone!
I guess I changed all that and we have been together ever since. I can't imagine my life without him, nor he without me! We are the best of friends.
Like all couples, we had to get to know one another when we first started going together. It was an adventure, finding out what made each other tick! We wanted to know everything there was to know about the other. We wanted to make each other happy, and we enjoyed one another's company so much that we wanted to be together all the time. When we were apart, we could hardly wait to be together again. Does any of this sound familiar?
First love is so exciting, isn't it? But then you get married, and after being together for so many years, it can become routine and sometimes you can take one another for granted. That is when you realize that you have to work a little harder to keep the marriage fresh and alive. You don't want anything to hurt the relationship nor do you want to take your mate for granted.
