Marriage II: What We Now Know

Marriage II: What We Now Know Join my husband and I as we share with you some of the stories about our upbringing, and how it has shaped us and our expectations coming into our marriage. We talk about our experience going through pre-marriage counseling before our wedding and why we love pre-marriage counseling as…

Marriage is A LOT!

Marriage is A LOT.That’s not a bad thing though. The things in our lives that are a lot are usually the things that last the longest and are worth every moment. As Christians, we know when it comes to marriage it’s more than the wedding, the big gown, the number of bridesmaids, and the number…

Marriage Fixes Everything

You’re probably laughing to yourself, and thinking, ‘um, no it doesn’t’! Well, you might be right about that, but you might also be kind of wrong about that. Marriage, on it’s own doesn’t fix anything. You can treat your marriage as a contract between two people or you can treat it as a covenant and…

Crying at Work …

It’s safe to say that yesterday was probably one of the best days I’ve had in a long time. Everything was falling into place, and I couldn’t ask for more.

Don’t Get Married

Yep, I said it. Sorry, not sorry, but someone had to say it! There’s this unspoken reality about marriage that many people don’t talk about. As a Christian and a Catholic, I’m supposed to be all for marriage for everyone, BUT I’m not. I’m really not! I don’t believe that marriage is for everyone. It…

Not Accidental

I think one thing that is clear to me by now is that my story isn’t one with lots of flowers and sparkles, and I’m completely fine with that. Know why? It’s because I’ve worked hard to be the person I’m today. It’s because I know there’s nothing in the universe that happens by accident….

No Babies …

For now! I’ve always found it so odd when couples get married, and then everyone starts asking them when they’re planning on having kids. Um, let them enjoy being married first? Right? Anyways… Personally, I don’t believe in having children before marriage (if you’ve read my other blog posts you’ll know that I was born…
