Marriage is an Accomplishment

 

Marriage is an accomplishment. Some may disagree because they believe that marriage does not belong on their checklist of goals they have set for themselves.

As a young girl I often fantasized about my tall, dark, and handsome knight in shinning armor coming to rescue me from my discomforting life. An adversary rescued me before I had the chance to meet my prince. Ha! That’s large chunk of time I wish I could get back, but that is a whole other story for another time. My prince had finally found me when I was twenty-one and we’ve been together ever since. We married when I was twenty-eight.

Marriage has been such a blessing for me and my family. Ever since we said I do, nothing but accomplishments have rained down on us. Shortly after we said our vows in front of God I became pregnant with my only daughter after giving birth to four handsome boys. Soon after marriage I graduated college with my Bachelor’s degree and my husband started his new job in his career field. Shortly after we said I do we bought our first home and both upgraded to new cars.Then, I gained employment in my career field two years later. We have only been married for three and a half years and so many amazing things has happened in such a short period of time.

Now, it is possible that all of our goals would have been accomplished separately but I can not confirm whether or not our goals would have been completed so swiftly. I’ll leave you with this bible verse.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
