Marriage in Bliss

John and I had a whirlwind relationship. We met February of 1998 and after a month of courtship we got officially “on” and celebrated our first monthsary April 27, 1998. Six months after, we got married in a civil rites (no church wedding followed up to this time) and today we are on our 10th year wedding anniversary.

Like any other marriage, we had our ups & downs, we faced so many emotional, physical and financial challenges especially when hubby was forced to resign from their company after 7 years of loyal service. There came a point that we almost gave up on each other but because of true love and God being the center of our relationship, we surpassed the trials.

Marriage is a lifetime partnership. There is no better or more important role, both the wife and the husband plays a significant role in building a family. Learn to say sorry when you are at fault, communicate your deepest feelings to your partner (keeping secret from your partner is a big NO), set goals for the family together and thank God for your partner. These are just some of the important lessons I learned for the past 10 years I've been I married.

I can never imagine myself being married to someone else other than John. Hubby is God fearing, loving and selfless. He is my friend, partner, confidante, critic and adviser. I can’t thank God enough for giving me a husband like John. I'm overjoyed God gave us CJ & Acey to complete the family.
