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.
Writing about marriage and relationships could be tiresome, I suppose, but Tuesdays are supposed to be more “personal experiences” and Fridays are supposed to be more “link to another article and give commentary.” The problem is finding posts or articles that encourage and support marriage. You can find 1,001 (or more!) articles talking about how to get a date or how to deal with divorce or how to HAVE AN AFFAIR.
After scouring the Internet for a marriage/relationship/sex related article that was in support of marriage and relationships and not, you know, giving you tips on how to have an affair, I was a little bit frustrated. I did what anyone else involved in social media does and vented on Twitter.
After a few exchanges, my friend Metalia had a rock star reply:
So, I threw the #marriageparty challenge out to the Internet and here is what the Internet threw back at me:
(I know it’s small and hard to read, and Molly concurs below. I’m technology impaired, so it might be best to just search Twitter for the #marriageparty or @AngellaD because there are SO MANY great responses.)
I can only go back so far, apparently (*shakes fist at Internet*), but if you look up the hashtag #marriageparty there is MORE.
(Edited to say that I woke up this morning to even more #marriageparty tweets. So, so great.)
We are not saying that marriage is perfect or without hiccups, no. Not at all. I just think we should celebrate the good sometimes. Or a lot of the time.
Would you like to share with the class what makes your marriage awesome?
