“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.”
A friend asked me recently whether my husband really says all the things I write about on my blog, or if I embellish. Apparently he seems too good to be true. He really does say those things and what I write is true. He really is a good husband. He is a really good husband. We are happy. I am happy. But he’s not perfect. Neither am I. What I don’t write about are his faults. I don’t complain about him. My blog is not a forum for that. My blog is for sharing the things I love about marriage. There are other blogs that show a more even portrayal of marriage but that’s not what I choose to do. This blog is not “the good, the bad, and the ugly.” It’s just the good. And there is a lot of it. Because we are human, there is also some bad (not real bad) on both our parts. Like I said, I don’t share that here. That’s between my husband and me. So, to review:
- I love my husband.
- He is a really good husband.
- He’s not perfect and neither am I.
I love my husband in all his imperfection. Anyone can love a perfect person. It takes real love to love imperfection. And after all, isn’t that what I promised to do in my marriage vows? Love, honor and cherish him? I think so.
