I never believed I’d have been married let alone being married for 12 years!
I met hubby in the summer of 2000 – I was still in school, working two jobs and trying to figure out how to make a car payment, rent, utilities, etc. I was never really taught to budget and such so I also had a mound of credit card debt.
He asked to me to marry him between Thanksgiving and Christmas and I agreed and we set the date 1-1-01 at 12:01 a.m. The date and time were significant at that time.
We were married, elopement style, on the banks of the Ohio River on the Kentucky side at one minute after midnight. No honeymoon as hubby had to be back to work the next day.
It hasn’t all been roses and cheer – sometimes it was and still is, downright hard – but divorce isn’t an option (even though he tells me, jokingly, if I bring home another cat he will LOL). Marriage isn’t easy – with the loss of a baby, homeschooling, scraping by some months so I can continue to stay home, some would say the odds are stacked against us.
I’m glad that we’ve made it to 12 years and I hope and pray that the Lord gives us more together as we continue to learn about each other and love one another.
