Sure – weddings are amazing…but the reason we do it is because being married is awesome!
But being married? Ah, that’s where the fun really begins. Why do you thing people all over the world are fighting so hard for marriage equality? It’s because marriage is one of the greatest journeys you’ll go on in your entire life.
Yes, sometimes it will be hard. You’ll get sick of washing his underwear. He might begin to detest the way you chew. Sometimes you’ll just want to scream in each other’s faces. But when the anger and frustration have come and gone, the pay-off is pretty immense.
