The Secret's Out

Generally after I inform those who John and I’ve been married for 17 years now, they exclaim in shock, “What, did you get married once you have been twelve?!” After which we chuckle and chuckle till I get up and cry a little bit.

The instances I am not dreaming, although, individuals generally ask what our “secret” is.  I assume they imply the key to a contented marriage, and never that factor that occurred on the truthful, as a result of how would they find out about that?

So. The key to a contented marriage?

ROMANTICAL TYPE WORDS AND STUFF.

Yep, nothing bolsters a relationship greater than eloquently whispered…um…whispers of affection. 

And stuff.

What’s extra, this type of mushiness is not simply in your weeding day!

Now, admittedly, John is rather a lot higher at this than I’m, however I’ve realized to comply with his lead and attempt to say one thing romantical each single day.

I do know it may be arduous for you naturally romantic chatterboxes to know us extra silent and stoic sorts, however the reality is typically we simply do not know methods to specific what we’re feeling.

And different instances you will have to chop us a little bit slack as a result of, hey, at the least we’re attempting.

 [creepy grin] Aheheheheh. PREEETTY.

However actually, I can not stress this one level sufficient:

ROMANTICAL.

And if you wish to hold your partner on his or her toes, attempt celebrating your subsequent anniversary like this:

 Not that *I* would ever do such a factor, in fact. No, I favor to jot down John heartfelt missives of the emotions my coronary heart feels. Type of like this bakery’s supply field:

[turning on slow, sultry beat] 

[grabbing mic] 

[talking over doo-wop back-up singers]

 John, sweetie? There isn’t any want purpose. [draping self over piano] You fall – you FALL! – in love with my freedom. [raising roof]  HEE-HEE! So open that window, child – sure, OPEN IT! In order that the soul of my soul and your soul and our souls – oh sure – [sliding to front of stage on knees] embracing you. [biting lip] Unnng. Yeah, boy. UH.

Due to Judie V.,  Melanie S., Anony M., Whitney B., Heather R.,  Stephanie & Aaron, Anony M., & Melinda H., for serving to me specific myself. Wish to benefit from the coronary heart was affected, guys. LIKE TO ENJOY.
