"Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that's a real treat." - Joanne Woodward
Something is seriously bothering me today.
I just can not shake a conversation that went on at work.
I am so disappointed sometimes on people's views on marriage.
How the expectation seems to be that after however many years you just end up kind of sick of each other. The love stops. The kissing stops. The laughing stops. The playing stops.
I just do not see why that is some how just "reality."
Not to me.
Now I'm not delusional.
I know there will be hard times, sad times, some seriously mad times.
I know first hand what it is like to be in an unhappy marriage. (One that lasted a britney spears/kim kardashian amount of days...not proud but thank my lucky stars)
But I want so badly to one day be that 70 year old couple sitting on a bench somewhere holding hands and I look over at my husband and still think... "Man, I just kind of want to kiss him on the mouth right now." I just don't want to fall out of love ever. That's not reality...and if so well it sure isn't mine! No way, No how.
You know what I mean?
I believe that is possible. And dang it I will wait however long it takes to find that!
If y'all are stuck in that alternate reality...you are going to be dang jealous.
