Work vs. Rewards

I am always preaching to my friends (and myself) that marriage is work. Just because you have that magical wedding does not mean that things will always been happily ever after. It takes patience, communication, sacrifices and trust from both parties to make it succeed. I can't imagine my life without my husband. Even though he drives me crazy some days, I would rather have him driving me to the point of wanting to bang my head against a brick wall, versus not having him in my life at all. I have some wonderful memories from us dating to buying our first house to the birth of our first child. I would not trade him in for anyone else. On days when he is annoying the crap outta me, I need to remember that I am not the easiest person to live with either. (see previous post)

The rewards of marriage definitely out weigh the work involved.
