Boys. And Girls…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARelationships are the ultimate best!  They are the best until they are the worst!  Being in a relationship with someone has so many perks and, inevitably, pitfalls.

When you’re in a committed relationship compromising makes up a large part of how long the relationship will last.  A relationship that doesn’t have the two people involved in it, working towards the same goal, won’t last.  I know this month is dedicated to the boys so I will say, “how are you to your partner?”  “Boys, do you treat them well?”  “Do you do your fair share of compromising?”  Just a little something to think about as you go on living in your couple-ness….  How can you make your relationship better?

tumblr_mscjk7SKTz1rt5262o1_500I have been married for seven years and we have been together for 13 years.  All through my twenties we toiled and triumphed.  Through the student loans and apartment applications, we survived.  Through the entire wedding process we managed to stay.  We are still here.  We are still going.  In my modest opinion every anniversary should be celebrated because that’s another year added.  Eventually those years should add up to an amazing relationship with someone special than most.


Praise and Ogo — 2011

I know many ladies and gents in relationships that seem to have it all together.  The thing is, we all KNOW that there is no such thing as the perfect relationship or couple.  It just doesn’t exist.  The most endearing relationships are forged in the trenches and use hard times as a foundation for their love.


I did say that I was posting about only boys this month, so this post goes out to my main squeeze.  Ogo, you are a great man even if sometimes you’re not…?  😉  That’s the fresh perspective…
