My subject is - Tell us about you and your husband’s love story. It was submitted by:
This is a very timely topic for me. The Hubby and I just celebrated our 20th anniversary. Not that we actually got to do anything or go anywhere…. You see, our anniversary is December 30th…… 5 days after Christmas…. Yeah, we are ALWAYS broke by then! LOL
I decided that instead of telling you our story I would tell you about the day we got married. It was definitely… ummmm… unforgettable…. LOL
We had been planning a big wedding with all the trimmings but
the warring factions ummmm, other family members, were giving us some major stress. SOOOO we decided to elope. Easy peasy, right?? Well, I still wanted to get married in church so we contacted the preacher to see if he would just let us show up and get married. He was delighted so that is what we did. I had a pretty dress that my mom had given me and The Hubby had a nice sweater that my mom had given him. Perfect. Time to get married.
We go to the church with 2 of The Hubby’s friends as witnesses. We get there and are ushered into the preacher’s office where we begin the formalities, do you have the license, ID, etc…. Then off to the sanctuary to be married!
And that is where it started……..
The preacher continually calls The Hubby by the wrong name. He also seems to have trouble holding onto the Bible and drops it on The Hubby’s feet several times.
Meanwhile, I am a blubbering idiot that forgot to wear waterproof mascara… Yeah, it wasn’t pretty! Thankfully the preacher gave me his handkerchief (which I still have).
Finally we are MARRIED!!! YIPPPEEE!! WOOOOO HOOOO!!!
Now, off to the preacher’s office to sign the marriage certificate…. if the preacher can find a pen that works…. and if he doesn’t fall trying to sit down in his chair ….. and if he can get the seal thingy to work properly…..
But it all worked out in the end and we were properly married without
the warring factions, ummmmm stressful relatives…..
I won’t say that 20 years have been easy, both The Hubby and I are stubborn people. Every little issue will pass, you just have to stick it out. Don’t argue about money, life is too short and money comes and goes. Check your ego and pride at the door, not every little thing is about you. Basically, treat your spouse in the manner you wish to be treated even when angry. Never say anything hurtful because the anger will leave but the words will still echo.
