First Year Bliss?
What was your experience of the first couple of months?
I was told that the first year of marriage would be absolute bliss: red roses, romantic dinners, spectacular sex, late-night conversations...our own little, perfect world.
Now, I'm not saying marriage is awful.
But I've found the first five months to be a challenge. It has been an adjustment and a learning curve.
There have been some emotional times, such precious times, some wasted times.
I have seen in myself goodness and love I didn't know I could possess. I have also seen in myself selfishness and sin seep out without warning.
Is first year bliss a myth? Should I still expect it? Or is it from Hollywood?
I like to link to...
