When I was a Junior in High School I made a group of my friends laugh in class when I said something along the lines of, “Can you even imagine what it’s like to be married? Waking up to the same person every morning and just being like…you? again?”
They laughed because everyone knows when you fall in love and get married you probably shouldn’t choose someone you’re disappointed to open your eyes to.
I’ve been married for 12 years today and I’m pleased to say my first thought every morning is usually more along the lines of:
“I don’t want to get up…”
“Why does it have to be a weekday?”
“I hate myself for staying up so late.”
“I’m so glad I don’t have to go to work as early as he does.”
And not ever along the lines of:
Still pleased with my choice all these years later. He’s a good friend to me.
I thought about murder a couple times, but…it’s a good life.
Happy Anniversary dear.
