I will admit, I never thought that meeting someone online, falling in love, getting married, having kids, and almost getting a divorce was ever in my thoughts. But that’s how the last 15 years of my life have been. It doesn’t seem like that long ago I announced I was in the process of getting separated and possibly divorced. Believe me when I say that the last 8 months have been the longest 8 months of my life and the most stressful.
However, I have very, VERY, happy to announce that my husband and I have possibly worked everything out and we are starting fresh. We are no longer separating and we are working to make our marriage work!
15 years ago, right around this time, we were planning our wedding. It was going to be a very small wedding and pretty much no one in my family knew about it. That story is for another time. This Thanksgiving Day will be our 15th wedding anniversary. It is amazing that it actually falls on Thanksgiving, however, it was bound to happen one year. Just didn’t know it would be on our 15th year.
How to make it work
How do you make a marriage work that was just about to end?
- You need time and patience.
- You need time away from each other.
- You need friends to participate in your life.
- You need date nights.
