This is a list of the petty, silly, random things I do in my marriage. Yes, so many of these need to change and I am always changing. Both of us are.
…not what you think it is when you are unmarried.
…nagging someone to the point of frustration, and then realizing you’re more annoying than whatever it was you were nagging them about.
…irrational jealousy and then when you receive attention from others you pretend it bothers you when you actually enjoy it.
…hypocritically doing everything you verbally tell your spouse to stop doing.
…crying uncontrollably in your spouse’s arms when you’re mad at them.
…waiting for them to come home and ignoring them when they arrive.
….cleaning and cooking while declaring your rejection of the 50’s housewife stereotype.
…demanding them to do multiple things for you and then expecting a back rub when they’re done.
…assuming you will always be watching your movie and calling it the ultimate sacrifice when you watch theirs.
…having breakthrough moments when both of you cling to each other and don’t let go.
…eating breakfast with them in silence and not minding it.
…going to work and wishing they worked with you.
…arguing over who makes the most accurate animal sounds.
…watching your son and taking turns saying, “He’s so cute.”
…graciously brushing your teeth in the morning to give them a fresh kiss.
…realizing every day that you love them and cannot live without them.
