When I got married I was twenty-one years young and my husband was twenty-seven. I was still confused about what to pursue in career wise because I love many things & I'm good at too many things. But that's a whole different story.
My husband has always been very supportive of my decisions. If he wasn't, I would never have married him. What I love about my husband is that he accepts me and respects me for who I am. Although sometimes he does get a bit sexist but it was less being sexist and more of a worried about me. A great example is like the time I had wanted to dance samba but I was at the beginning of my second trimester of pregnancy. Everything that I am passionate about, my husband thinks is amazing. He always encourages me to do the things I am afraid of doing.
And out of all of the people that I have ever been friends with my entire life, my husband is the only person who truly knows me, even more so than most of my family.
So what is the Modern Day Wife?
Well first let me begin by saying that the entire time my husband & I were engaged we were both very nervous.
Fortunately, we went on a little cruise around New York City a month before we got married. That's where we met a lovely couple from Arizona who had been married for about 50 years. The wife & I quickly became friends and she went on to tell me how she and her husband had met.
They met at their university, both graduated together and later his wife continued to grad school while he followed in his family's foot steps to join the Air Force. They kept in touch and when they finally reunited they became best friends and got married.
I was wreck I listened to her with teary eyes, I felt like I was signing my life away. I felt like I wasn't going to my mommy's little girl anymore. So I had asked her two very important questions that I will never forget:
"Why did you get married?"
"I was straightforward with him. He knew how hard I worked on my education and how passionate I was about my career. He respected me."
"What is your secret to a happy marriage?"
