Dating is around the corner for her. My focus is shifting from reassuring her that our family is secure to giving her the tools she will need to build her own successful marriage someday. It would be a disservice to her to let her believe that the reason my husband and I are still together after nearly 19 years of marriage is because we are still "in love".
Not exactly, baby. What Daddy and I have goes much deeper than just the feeling of in-love-ness. We choose to not only love each other, but admire and respect each other, take care of each other, and be good friends. We've built a life, a home, and a family together. The butterflies in my tummy were really fun, and God used them to draw us together, but it's not what makes our marriage last. Those feelings come and go. Our relationship is much stronger than that, and what we have now is WAY better.
