I believe for most of that one year, God had been molding our character and unity as a couple. And He still is.
We learnt to be independent from our parents and at the same time, to be depended on God together; instilling steel into the back bone of our marriage.
Not everything has been ‘and-they-lived-happily-ever-after’ though. We do have our crazy moments where we fall from lovers to enemies in an instant; from hugging to strangling each other. Haha…
For most parts of those moments, they primarily stemmed from our differences in personality, gender traits and personal habits. For instance, I’m the outgoing and adventurous sort while my wife is more reserved and safe.
So you can imagine how we can unknowingly or knowingly unnerve each other. That’s explosive couple-discovery! Haha…
Fun as it may seems but there’s no doubt that marriage is hard work. There are loads of loving and forgiving to do each day on top of the practical challenges that need to be tackled.
Nonetheless, I give thanks for an awesome first year (and the latter years ahead) of marriage. Indeed, God is good!
