Forever: Adverb: For all future time; for always.
I promise to love you forever. Come richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, till death do us part.
I love by those words. We stood before God, our family and our friends and vowed to love each other forever no matter what. My husband and I take our vows very seriously. We never allow anything to come between us. We are always honest with each other, no matter how hard it is to say something. We talk about anything and everything and we talk to each other before making any big decisions. If we don’t agree with each other, we talk until we meet a happy medium that we both agree on. We compromise with each other and that’s why we get along so well. Yes, we do have our arguments occasionally but we know how to work through them together.
Some people I have seen don’t take their marriage as serious as my husband and I do. I see guys yelling at their wives in public and talking down to them. I’ve seen women sneaking around their husband’s back during deployment and even when they’re home, and I’ve seen men sneaking around their wives back too. I have to be completely honest… That is absolutely disgusting. If you don’t love, trust and respect your significant other, then you don’t deserve to be with them. You can’t trust someone if you don’t respect them and you can’t love someone if you can’t trust and respect them. You have to trust and respect your significant other to love them, to truly, honestly, deeply, full heartedly love them.
If you don’t treat your significant other well, he or she will find someone that will. Sooner or later your spouse will find someone to treat them like a king or queen. No one deserves to be in a bad relationship. No one deserves to be beaten or cheated on. Not even beaters or cheaters deserve it because two wrongs don’t make a right. An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind.
The old sayings are true… Treat others the way you want to be treated. Now that doesn’t mean that you have the right to go cheat on your significant other if they’re cheating on you. It’s not right, and nothing will ever make it right. Don’t stoop to their level; don’t be as immature as they are. Be a grown adult and be a good person and do what’s right for you and your family.
