    Very honest and accurate depiction of marraige. I think that the biggest lie for me was that being a wife and mother would be easy because that was my vocation. What a contrast to reality! I can’t believe what a daily personal sacrifice it involves. Only now it is clear that this vocation really is a pathway to heaven.

    Thank you so much for writing this article! I certainly relate to a lot of what you wrote. My husband and I will be married 3 years in September which is also when our third baby is due. We have definitely struggled staying connected especially with his new job that has him working 15 hours a day, 6 days a week. I think the biggest lie I believed about marriage when I was single was that marriage would always be romantic and that I would always have that butterfly feeling in my stomach. The truth is that my love for my husband is a choice and not always a feeling. That is something I have shared with a lot of couple thinking about marriage. Even when you don’t like your spouse or feel disconnected, they need to still make the CHOICE to love and not always rely on the feeling of love to be there.

    I really resonated with this article! Thanks for writing it! I feel like I absolutely married the one for me and that we deeply love each other. Yet what you wrote is so true. Kids have been hard on us, even though we love them and still want more. And it is very hard to work on ourselves. And yes, lonley! Again, thanks.
