with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
MSN.com posted an article that was originally in Oprah’s “O” magazine, written by Rita Wilson (wife of one Tom Hanks, in case you were not aware). In the article she talks about a time when they were riding in the car the her parents and the question, “Would you marry the same person again?” came up. One of her parents threw out a “Not me!”
It’s a good article that got me thinking. We’re coming up on our ten year anniversary and the question “If you knew at 25 what you know today about your spouse, would you still marry the same person?” made me think I should address it.
I was twenty-five when I got married (Which means I’m coming up on thirty-five but we need not talk about that right now. Or ever.)
When I asked myself if I would marry him again, the answer was a resounding YES.
As I’ve mentioned numerous times, we got engaged after a month of dating and then married five months later. I knew that he was amazing (Hence the marriage) but did not truly know how deep the well of his awesomesauce was.
Ten years later I am fully aware of how good I have it and what a mistake it would have been to not marry him.
How about you? Would you marry your spouse again?
