I have been married for 28 years . I love it when I come home at night and my wife says “How was your day.” It may not seem like much to some of you but for me it’s huge that someone sincerely cares about me and that I care about someone so much that I put her needs first that I put her needs before mine. Don’t get me wrong we don’t always do a great job of this but we are getting better. Being married is like being a musician. When I got my first guitar I saw myself onstage playing like Hendrix. It was exciting and I couldn’t play it enough. Eventually I realized that playing guitar was going to take a lot of work and commitment. The more I learned the more I enjoyed playing music. The honeymoon period was replaced by a deep commitment and a real joy. I think marriage is the same way. I love it that things that used to irritate my wife and I are now a source of amusement for us. We laugh at ourselves and our struggles to be honest and real with each other. I love her now more than I ever have. I know a lot of you have chosen to stay single or are just waiting for the right person. I encourage you to be complete as you are. Our happiness is not really based on other people or even our circumstances but comes from a place inside of us. If you are one of these people I have a lot of respect for you. Yes, this is a response (not a reaction) to some earlier posts. I think TB is a great place to create harmony between us. I have seen how so many of us accept each other no matter what are differences are. I have seen many of you debating your differences in a respectful and even fun way, and that is a good thing.
