My Parents’ Marriage

August 5, 2016

Yesterday my parents celebrated 32 years of marriage. As a semi-newlywed that number is mind-blowing to me.  What’s even more mind-blowing is everything they have accomplished and gone through in those 32 years, all while remaining steadfast in their love for each other and for their family.

Frankly it makes my heart swell and how could it not?

All my childhood, I looked up to them as the picture of what marriage should be. They taught me that marriage should be a partnership, with two people giving and taking and supporting each other throughout their life. Marriage should be growing and learning and experiencing new things together. Marriage should be something you work at to nourish and preserve.

My parents’ marriage is all of those things and I so incredibly thankful that in a world of the short-lived, they have stood the test of time.

32 years is an amazing milestone, but I know that they have 32 (or more) years full of amazing moments ahead. Happy anniversary, you two crazy kids!
