Another anniversary creeps up and suddenly I’ve been married to this man for 16 years. Which means we’ve been together for 26 years. More than half my life. It feels like we’ve been together forever, he was my first ‘proper’ boyfriend, I remember hesitating when he asked me to go out with him, he says he always knew we would stay together. I would say now that we’ve had our ups and downs, but to be honest, and not to seem smug, but we really haven't. People often say it’s good to argue, that it clears the air and makes the relationship real. But we just don’t really argue about anything, does this mean we are boring/bored? I don’t think so. We have a lot of adventures together, but we also have our own space, things we do apart with different people and that’s fine with both of us.
I know we are lucky that we found each other, at the right time, and that we’ve had a very happy life together, and the best thing is it’s not over yet. There are many more adventures waiting for us and I can’t wait to enjoy them with my favourite person.
