Romance to Marriage
The romance warming and beautiful the feeling that nothing will ever change envelopes you and lulls you into a false sense of security.
I want you to notice the water, isn't it beautiful and calming and the sun sitting over the water is so romantic isn't it?
When Does The Honeymoon End?
Hmmm, right about now I'd say! You see it's my theory that nothing wilts the lilies of love any quicker than steam off of hot dish water! LOL
Although I jest a bit truth is that most marriages start out with unpractical expectations. Those romantic walks, sitting on the beach at sunset and so on are wonderful.
Trust me when I say they don't last! At this point you might be saying, "What makes this woman and expert?" That would be a very good question.
My answer would be 33 years of marriage that's what! Yes, to the same man...
For those of you about to be married with the full knowledge that things will change regardless of how in love you are I congratulate you.
For those of you that don't know this, my sympathy and I hope you didn't spend a lot on the wedding!
Go into the marriage with the knowledge that love is forever and romance is not unless you keep it there on purpose.
If you were allowed to know only one thing about a marriage before you took the plunge this this would be the thing to know.
