I’ve been out of school for more than a decade. Alison and I have four kids, own our home, and educate our children. We live far away from our families, so it’s just the six of us. While I’m still a young man, I’m a young man with grown-up responsibilities.
I was out on my walk the other day, when I realized just how much better my life is because Alison and I are on the same team. It’s not nominal, it’s practical. We work together carrying the responsibilities of our household, we pick up the slack for each other when needed. It’s a wonderful thing.
Marriage is broadly misunderstood, either as a committed friendship or some sort of business arrangement. There’s something very romantic about teamwork that’s so natural that it’s almost imperceptible. We’re a team in every sense of the word.
