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.
‘Finding your soul mate’ is a big thing in our culture. You will meet him (or her) and you will discover that you are the other half of each others’ puzzle. Romantic music will play in the background and you will live your lives together in a state of romantic comedy-esque bliss.
I don’t know if I believe that there is one ’soul mate’ for every person because, well, the Earth has a lot of human inhabitants. That said, I cannot imagine being married to anyone other that my husband. We have our differences, of course — he is a pessimist (he says he’s a ‘realist’) and I am the eternal optimist.
Those different perspectives aside, we are wired a lot alike. We have the same faith, the same family values, the same sense of humor, the same frugal nature, the same desire for a clean home, the same desire to live a fit and healthy life.
(He may or may not be more frugal and a bit more anal about the house cleaning, but we can joke about it. Because it’s either that or cry about it. I’m kidding. Ish.)
All of that to say that I don’t know if my husband is my ’soul mate’, but he’s the perfect man for me and I honestly don’t know how it could be any better.
How about you? Do you believe in soul mates? Are you married to yours?
