The Perfect Marriage

Since it's the National Marriage Week, the week of love, Valentines Day, etc., I thought it would be a good time to write about something that I've been wanting to write about for awhile...

I know most of you like to read about real life. You like to hear about ups and downs. You don't want perfection all the time. And it's been brought to my attention that some of you think that John and I have a "perfect" marriage and that's all I share on the blog.

So, my questions is, what exactly does perfect mean?

Do you think we never fight? We do
Do you think we are rich? We aren't
Do you think we agree on everything? We don't
Do you think we don't annoy each other? We do

No one is perfect, so in my opinion, no one has the perfect marriage. But there are people who are perfect for each other which can make a marriage pretty dang good.

Our marriage is perfect for us.

What I share on this blog is real life for us. Yes, we argue occasionally and we don't always agree but that is minimal when looking at the big picture. We have fun together, we laugh together, we cry together, we spend most of our time together.

I don't want anyone to ever think that our marriage is perfect because we aren't. Our marriage is perfect for us in my eyes and that is all that matters.  And what is perfect for us may not be perfect for everyone else.

I loved this post! Thank you! I have been reading a lot of people posting about not seeing the "real" side of people. Well, honestly, I don't want to post about the sad stuff because who wants to dwell on the negative? Do they want a pity party? I sure don't want to join! haha!!

Anywhoooo....I loved the part about marriage being perfect for you - that is so true and all that matters! :-)

I love this post!!!! There's no such thing as truly perfect - it's learning to love within the imperfections that matters!

Well said! Just because you don't post about every little argument or disagreement, doesn't mean you/your marriage is perfect, I totally get it :) I love how you said your marriage is perfect for the two of you--so true and that's how it should be.
