My husband and I just celebrated our 6 year anniversary! We got married January 19, 2013 and although we are not the perfect couple, we continue to say yes to our marriage. We met in college while there was no Instagram and AIM still existed along with killing time on Yahoo Games. Our first ever conversation together was through some scrabble game on Yahoo in a group game with mutual friends. We eventually met in person through those friends and found ourselves messaging each other through AIM which let to long chats and little excitements when I saw his screen name appear. I would say we were just getting close “as friends”, but eventually we started dating. After dating for over 4 years and figuring life out together as we entered into adult life after college. We booked our first week-long trip as a couple to Seattle. I secretly and totally expected him to propose to me during this trip. I had even mentioned to a few girlfriends that I was hoping for a proposal. Every day on the trip at any romantic moment, I was thinking in my head, this is it. And no it didn’t happen, until the morning of our last day and a few hours before our flight back home, he had woken me up on his knees with the ring. He said something on the lines of “let’s wake up together every morning forever” but all I had thought was, I probably look like a hot mess, just waking up. I didn’t realize that that was the closest to what marriage is really like. Being vulnerable and real with someone you love and accepting each other at the rawest moments. That is the love we work towards after 6 years of marriage.
