You have chosen a partner with whom you will compete against any number of external challenges and obstacles.
Marriage is the ultimate team sport. You and your spouse will need to accomplish, at a minimum, the following: maintain financial solvency, balance work and life, maintain a household, achieve adequate nutrition, further careers, and perhaps raise a few more humans along the way.
It’s fun. It really is. You get to create something totally your own, a family. The traditions, past times, activities, cuisine, decor, it is all up to the both of you.
There will be some awesome trips, some fabulous activities and neat people along the way, but there will also be struggles. There will be growing pains and sufferings.
The bottom line is that everything you do, you do as a team.
