TRUE OR FALSE? The first year of marriage is the hardest.

It has been said and commonly understood by most that the first year of marriage is the hardest. Earlier this spring we celebrated one year of marriage. I don’t know if I would describe it in the same way. It has honestly felt like a yearlong honeymoon for us, yet I’m not saying we didn’t have our challenges. I think every newly married couple goes through an adjustment period and how you handle it makes all the difference. 

Here are some reasons why I believe the first year of marriage is difficult for…

I dont deserve my spouse

I don't deserve my spouse

Early in my single years I used to have a list, yes “the list.” Anyone else have a list of the qualities you desire to have in a spouse? I would pray for the man I would one day marry and ask God for these qualities in my husband. One day I felt God interrupt me and ask me who I wanted to be for my future spouse? That shifted my thinking a bit. I ended up making a new list of the things I wanted to be and of qualities I wanted to have as a gift to my husband one day.

Finding true love can feel like a complete miracle. Honestly it is. And then choosing the right person to spend the rest of your life with is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, decision you’ll make in your life. I remember feeling this was so out of reach for me at times in my season of singleness. I didn’t want to compromise my standards of the quality man I wanted to marry, yet there were low moments where I contemplated it because it felt like it was never going to happen. Yet God was faithful. I…

How do I know if he or she is the right one? Part 1 

Recently I have come out of my season of waiting. I got married at age 30. Never did I expect to wait so long to get married. Yet it’s not that uncommon these days. I shared in my earlier post about my challenges and experience with fighting for hope in the waiting. Click here to read it. 

The question has come up a lot, (as if God destines two people to be together despite all circumstances.) I don’t know that answer, but I would probably lean more…
