"Marriage is not a noun; it's a verb. It isn't something you get. It's something you do. It's the way you love your partner every day." - Ann Landers
I like this quote. I think it sums up marriage perfectly. Marriage is work, a lot of work. And when you spend all your time with one other person it can be hard to remember to love them every day. Particularly when they leave plates with food stuck on them on the coffee table over night and keep boxes of unopened mail from 2005.
So even though Brady does many annoying little things, I am going to remember to work at loving him every day. And I made him promise to do the same with me because I know I do a lot of little things that annoy him. Marriage is hard, but as long as you remember to love your partner every day, it is great. And having cake and beer help a lot too.
