As many of you know, I have been trying to compile the experiences & advice of long married people to give all of us singles or newly married people a look into marriage–what it really is, what it means, and how it can work. I found that there were a lot of people out there who didn’t have the strong examples for marriage that I’ve had, and that I didn’t bother to ask these people any of the things I wanted to know about marriage, either. Knowledge is power, and power is light. It has already been, and I think will continue to be, a very illuminating conversation.
You know how scary and unrecognizable things look as you try to make your way through an unfamiliar dark room? That’s how marriage is to many of us–we don’t know what’s in that big dark room. We keep hearing strange noises & bumping into things. The good news is, there’s a light switch we can turn on. When we turn on the light and we see what’s actually there, it’s not so scary. We can see how we can make our way through the space. Also, we can see all the wonderful and not so wonderful things that are there, and decide if we want to be there.
So this is me, shedding a little light on marriage, through interviews with many of the beloved married people that I know. I have also included my marriage preparedness posts. Read and comment often!
