A Look at Marriage at Six Months

Marriage forces you to face your biggest insecurities, traumas, and fears. Marriage encourages growth in all the hardest places. That’s my two cents as we approach six months of marriage. That it is beautiful and so fulfilling and the best thing I’ve ever experienced. And that it has also caused me to fall to my knees in tears. It’s caused me to reevaluate my priorities. It’s caused me to take a good, hard look at the traumas caused by my past relationships and my family members.

Marriage has shown me that I am far from perfect. That I am deeply flawed. And the only salvation is through Jesus. Keeping God at the center of our relationship has carried us through every single difficult moment. Working on our relationship through marriage books, therapy, and counsel from those wiser than us has been essential.

Marriage has shown me that it’s scarily easy to hurt the person you love most in this world. And that pride needs to be fiercely thrown to the floor. It’s challenged me in all of the very best ways.

I love this man more than my being can express. There’s no one else I’d work so hard for. No one else I’d show such vulnerability in front of. Our bond is sacred. Our bond is holy. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for our marriage.
