I've said it before, Marriage Is Hard Work! One thing that helps is when you reach out and realize that you are not the only one going through it and blogging DEF introduces you to a world of amazing people who aren't scared to show their battle scars and pass their lessons on to the newbies.
My new Glossy Page is Alisa Bowman's Project: Happily Ever After. When she realized that planning her husband's funeral and repast down to the appetizers and music selection was NOT the norm of a young marriage, Alisa decided to devout the energy to helping her marriage and went on a mission to getting things back on track. Everyone has their "Let Me Tell You What He Did" story but Alisa has a very unique story of her own so far:
*He spent their honeymoon money on a ski trip with his friends
*Once their daughter was born, he FINALLY got a job and spent all his time at work, with his workers, and planning for it.
*Their daughter was HER responsibility.And yet, she stayed, she talked to friends, and tried to get advice on what to do and committed herself to working with her husband to getting things back to better and beyond. I'm excited about the direction of the book and to see where things are with their marriage. So far its a fun read but hits home on so many levels, already a must read for the married and those thinking about it.
Who or What helps you guys when you face a rough patch?
