Garibay Soup: I Love My Marriage

I Love My Marriage

Marriage to me is one of the most powerful things on this earth. It is a bond that you form and choose to stick with someone forever. In my case for all eternity. It's a bond that you can't break, it's a bond that you don't want to break even when it's the one thing in this world you'd love to break.

I met my husband 8 1/2 years ago and I've been happily married for almost 3 years. Married for almost 5. We've been through some disastrous situations, ones that end marriages, but we overcame them together. Divorce has never been an option, even when it should have been. Instead, we learned to love each other again, maybe for the first time. We learned what it means for better or worse. I learned to appreciate my wedding ring and it's symbol of a never ending circle. This marriage will never end.

This man that I'm married to is my best friend. Nobody can make me more mad, but nobody can make me more happy. We're this powerful team that can conquer anything together, because we've almost been through it all in our eyes. We are proof that the most horrible marriage can survive and I feel like for us sticking it out through the thick and thin that God has blessed us with a great marriage.

I don't think I tell him enough how thankful I am for him. I don't think I tell him enough how there's no way in this world that I could do this life without him, that there's no way in this world that I'd want to do it without him. But I'm telling him here, now. Someday he'll read this blog and when he comes upon this entry I want his heart to smile.

You are an amazing husband, Gino. I'm proud of the choices and changes that you have made to better yourself and our family. You make my heart smile every day. I'm thankful to have you as a husband, friend, and father of my children.

When Kristen announced the SWAK carnival I was so excited. I love to brag about my marriage and my husband. So, if you want to brag about your husband or read other's entries go to her blog and start reading away.

good advice. It amazes me how much work my marriage takes, but I wouldn't be me without him, ya know?

I think you are right! It is one of the most powerful unions in the world-that's probably why it's so hard and attacked so much!

Thanks for sharing your story!

I'm glad to hear that what can end a marriage only served to make your stronger.

I think that is a beautiful post and tribute to your husband. We've had problems too, although - probably minor in comparrison to others... but it was tough, and we chose to stick with it. God has been our rock and our guide...

Thank you for sharing. :-)
