Three Weeks Married

I’ve started and stopped writing after the wedding about a half-dozen times. Life has continued on. Money continues to be needed, so I and K continue to work.

The truth is that nothing has really changed. Sure, I wear a ring now. I feel naked without it. But otherwise our lives are largely the same. We already lived together. We already were committed to each other. We already shared and relied on each other.

What has changed though is the future. Where our time lines might have, at some point in the past, spun off in separate directions they have now become inseparably entwined, wrapped around each other in a helix to eternity.

We have always said that this is forever. I believe it.

Yesterday was our three week anniversary. Pretty soon we’ll stop tracking the weeks, but for now we’re enjoying the count. Aiming for 80 years married, it means we’ve got somewhere around 4,156 to go.

I can’t wait πŸ™‚

  1. Awww, yay! I know what you mean about the inextricably entwined futures thing. I think Mr. Darcy said it best in his proposal: “You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love… I love… I love you, and never wish to be parted from you from this day forward.”

    SWOON.

  2. I love you son. I truly wish you and K such a wonderful journey; filled with rocks, boulders, sandy beaches, blue sky’s, brisk breezes, unbelievable sights, lazy afternoons, rambunctious mornings with your beautiful children jumping into bed with you guys. Remember: it’s a journey that will end before you know it so savior each minute and enjoy the ride!

  3. I love what your dad wrote – he sounds really cool! Something everyone should remember through their daily married lives!
