I’ve heard a couple of celebrities mention that marriage shouldn’t take work. It should be easy. So here’s my public service announcement for the day: that’s ridiculous.
Marriage is hard work. And I’m saying that as someone who has never, ever, not even for a split second regretted marrying my husband. I’m saying that as someone who believes I hit the jackpot in the husband area (and he didn’t do so bad himself :)).
But it’s still hard work.
It’s hard work to both love and like your spouse. To refuse to ignore problems that surface. To learn to understand each other despite the different ways you communicate. To make your marriage a priority in a culture that doesn’t.
It takes time. It takes committment. It takes hard work.
And it’s worth it.
What are your thoughts on whether or not marriage is hard work?
