I Interrupt This Blogging Hiatus...


"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.

That's all....

  1. I agree with you 100% Lauren. I too know this feeling and I see it the same way you do.
    You will find this one day. I know this because I have. You are an amazing woman and somewhere out there is an amazing man searching for you. You deserve all the happiness in the world. I can't wait to read your excited blog posts when you do.

  2. That quote is perfect. I have only been married for a little over a year, but I am confident we can be that old couple if we never give up (which we won't). Marriage takes work every single day. I think being aware of that, and being willing, has a lot to do with the success. Also, laughter goes a long way.

  3. Oh marriage!! As we know, such a tricky thing haha. Joe and I have to work at it every day and yes we are still in the "Newlywed Stage" but I don't see why we can't keep that love alive forever. There are sad and for sure MAD times haha but it's true, if you have that desire and you're "willing" to make it work and want your marriage to be stronger every day - it can be :) Great post Lauren!

  6. I agree. My husband and I have been going through some heavy crap lately. But we won't give up. It would honestly be a waste. All those years together and our kids. Sometimes it's better to just suck it up and fix it.
