So I was on Facebook earlier today and I started writing a new status, just to announce that today is my 5 year wedding anniversary with my husband. I was going to write a simple sentence but I felt like I wanted to add a lot more detail. Back in 2010 was the last time I wrote a post where the main topic is about “marriage”, so I decided to make one now. If you don’t already know, my husband and I met through World of Warcraft. I met him for the first time in-game around August 2006 when he helped and later joined my guild. My life was not going too well at that point so Long story short, he was (and still is) my best friend. After talking to him every day, I decided to meet up with him for the first time in real life in July 2007. Oddly enough the first movie we saw together as well as our first date was “License to Wed“.
When I first found out I was pregnant with my son that following August, I was scared sh*tless. Sure, most people have found true love via interwebz but definitely not by the time they first meet. How was I suppose to know that this guy would stand by me through out everything that the future will have to offer AND a kid? Yes, I was scared, mainly because we’ve seen the movies and TV episodes of single parent hardships. Yes, there are single parents who excel at it, but I didn’t (and still don’t) want that lifestyle for me. My husband was ecstatic, while I cried. When he asked me why I was crying and I told him about my fears about the future, then he said the most comforting thing to say to me at that point: “Why would I sleep with you if I didn’t already know I wanted to spend my life with you and to start a family with you?” I will admit I was still scared but I felt so much better after hearing him say those words.
Needless to say, I decided to take a chance at it and here we are after being married for 5 years. Some people make fun of marriage like it’s a prison sentence, but my husband has been really great to me. I honestly couldn’t ask for a better person to be married to, to be the father of my son, and my best friend who supports me in every step towards the future. Ok, he does has flaws. Yes, we had some tough times. Overall though, I have had the best times of my life with my husband. I know he loves me just as I love him…unconditionally. I know it just tickles my heart, every time I hear someone comment how cute we are together.
P.S – I like making sandwiches for my husband’s lunch! 😛 I write little notes on his sandwich bags like “Love you”, “Have a good day”, “Be Safe!” and surrounded it with a couple of little hearts. I am still waiting on the day someone comments on them. I imagine it’ll go something like this:
Co-worker: “What’s up with your sandwiches? Did your mother make that for you?”
Husband: “No, my wife did.”
