The Secret to a Long Marriage

I don’t know a lot about marriage. Even after 13 years I find it to be exasperating most of the time.

It feels like work a lot. And I know it shouldn’t be. But with 4 kids, autism, an emotional 8 year old, sports, a toddler, work, and a baby…well, we could very well be speaking different languages most days.

But this afternoon, watching my husband get in the pool with 15 rambunctious, crazy, insanely loud boys, I remembered exactly why I married this guy and will gladly spend the rest of my life with him.

Find the guy who plays with the kids. Who throws the football and launches kids 5 feet in the air. The one who the kids are drawn too and who doesn’t skip a beat when his shoes end up at the bottom of the pool.

I think it might be the secret to a long marriage even.

The The guy who gets in the pool.
