Love Makes The World Go Round! Copyright © Lisa van den Berg
I must admit to being a whole half of one of those really soppy, wonderful marriages you see on rose tinted TV.
It never really rings true with me when people say , 'I'm one half of a whole'
One of wonderful things in our relationship is fact that we are two 'wholes' that make up a great big hole (oops… whole :-)
We should, if truth be told, never have gotten married according to state of our relationship at time. We are two totally different people and from such immensely different backgrounds and upbringings that had we looked at it all logically, it would have been doomed from start.
Love, I suppose you could say, saved day!
He makes me laugh. I mean real belly aching, gut wrenching shake that no-one else finds in least bit funny, but we collapse over. He makes me feel safe. Although I am a very independent woman, he holds me tight and fights monsters when they come too close (and I love it). He tells me I'm being silly, when I am, and I sit and listen (whether I agree or not is a completely different matter). He loves coming home to me and we run and hug each other moment door swings open (we could be compared to two Labradors on first meeting) We dance at drop of a hat and don't care who's watching And we can sit quietly in each others company for hours on end.
Some of things that have changed since that day we got married have been conscious and some completely not.
For instance; He openly admits that he adores me but that if our marriage were to deteriorate beyond repair, he would seek another mate. This used to have me sobbing for an entire day as I was very clingy and believed in whole 'fairytale'. When I realized that we would have to constantly work at our relationship to keep each other 'in love', I took responsibility for each and every experience we have, and so does he (and it's wonderful)
