What My Husband Has Taught Me About Love

11123_4498367825178_471113986_n_21Let me tell you…. The commitment of marriage is NOT for the weak. It is difficult, and at times can feel like a never ending uphill battle. In the midst of all the responsibilities you have, finding time for your husband or wife may be close to impossible. If you don’t have a basic understanding of what love is, you will find yourself wanting to call it quits. Here is what my husband has taught me about love:

Love is unconditional. There is no “If you don’t do this, you don’t love me.”

It gives you the ability to forgive, and be forgiven.

If you love someone, you better prove it. Because love is not a noun to be defined, but a verb to be acted upon.

Choose your battles. It is never about winning or losing, and it is okay to let certain things go.

It doesn’t hold you back. In fact, love motivates you and helps you grow in all areas of your life.

Everyone has different definitions, but I’m sure we can all agree that love is not supposed to hurt more than it feels good. And I think that is the most valuable thing that anyone can be ever be shown.

    Marriage is such a work in progress. Some people mistaken that phrase as “Love is a work in progress” when in reality Love should already be there before marriage even came into the picture. Marriage is all about cooperation and communication to find the right balance for both people. Now when children, work, and life gets thrown into the mix, marriage becomes even more difficult. I wrote a blog about this very thing where I lost sight of my husband but I thank God for bringing us back to where we need to be. We are not perfect, oh not by a long shot, but we are continually working towards a happy and healthy marriage. Love for my husband has taught me forgive, forget, and to always put love above all else.

    • Yes, yes and yes. I’ll have to check that out!

  • Love this!
    My favorite line was “Because love is not a noun to be defined, but a verb to be acted upon.” That is so good!
    I always write “choose your battles” when asked to give a piece of marriage advice at bridal showers. It has saved us from SOOO many unnecessary fights that we won’t even remember months down the road!

    This is great. I’m not married but it’s refreshing to see posts about the fact that marriage is WORK. It’s not easy every day, all the time. Thank you!

    • This is something I realized while we were getting serious, that relationships are definitely not what I knew them to be in movies. So if I can make anyone more aware of that before marriage, awesome! <3 Thank you!
