13 years into being married has made me realized and taught new tricks to this old kitty. Whoever said that we can’t teach new tricks to old dogs. Totally untrue. If you really want to learn new things and make someone happy (not just to make the other half happy but to save and make anything grow) you will be willing to learn new stuff.
Because we RESPECT each other, we asked first before opinions are given. This is my motto: If I got nothing good to say, I would just bite my tongue and stay quite.
Because we LOVE each other, we learned to fight for what is right and keep the fire burning. With our undying LOVE for each other I know in my heart that things will be a lot easier because we have each other.
Because of our FAITH we continue to stand by each other and like what hubby said not behind each other but beside each other.
We do HOPE that one day our kids can see and remember the struggle we have to put up with people who wants to bring us down.
With a billions folds of PATIENCE we made it this far and counting.
Although our marriage was never an easy ride. We are together because we rode the rides together and stand firm on our decisions and share the nightmares and wake up with a solution or two.
Understanding marriage has no textbook and even the longest married couple have no formula but you can make any marriage work if both parties are willing to commit and make it work.
As I looked back and rewind the past years it wasn’t an easy task but hey, we survived it and still going strong.
So what’s the formula of a long lasting marriage?
