For Better, For Worse ðŸ‘°ðŸŽ©ðŸ’‘

Standard

..to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us do part..Hmm sometimes easier said than done! 

6 years ago this week we stood before our nearest and dearest in a hot Tuscan town hall and declared our love to all the world. Now don’t get me wrong I adore my husband, I truly believe he is my soulmate as slushy as that sounds and marrying him was the best thing I ever did. We have experienced so much together in our 9 years as a couple and we embrace all the highs with vigour and work well together when there have been lows.

They say a baby makes you stronger… I actually agree. Having a baby together is a wonderfully unifying thing to do as a couple and every day I feel so blessed to have my 2 boys in my life. However the reality is parenthood seriously gets in the way of your marriage and that’s ok, to a point. Despite the odd date night & the cuddles on the couch you can often feel like ships in the night, treating each other more like housemates than life partners. That’s what it is, a partnership, parenting is a partnership and it can be very easy to forget each other in the midst of peppa pig, wakeful nights and pooey nappies. You can lose track when the other love of your life {your child} is trying to take number 1 spot.. The reality is that you do but you mustn’t and when these phases inevitably happen you come out of them making plans and promises to each other.

Yes it is hard sometimes with all that goes on but it is important to mind your relationship as well as your child. As we celebrate 6 happy married years we will cherish our time together {in Monart I might add} 😉 and move towards the next phase with those promises firmly in our pockets!
