Keep The Fire Burning In An Imperfect Love

Marriage is a hard work....

Although I have been so in love with the same man for 14 years, we were just married 4 years ago. It is not always easy… not the kind that would tickle the heart of a hopeless romantic at all times. We shared the worst and best of times… for a decade and more.

Honestly, we irritate and sometimes hurt each others feelings. We argue about petty things. Sometimes, our ideas and principles don’t meet. He makes me feel bad at times and I know I do the same to him. Getting into a relationship is not all the good things that we get so dreamy about when we were teenagers.

Relationship, commitment, and most of all, keeping a marriage work is not an easy task.

We had an imperfect relationship for more than a decade. He proposed 4 times before we finally settled for marriage. I was 29 years old… I never wanted to be a wife and a mom at an earlier age. I never relied from any man to satisfy my quest for happiness. I always managed to be happy and get what I need and even the things I want without relying from any man.

And suddenly, realization had set in. I realized that I was happy… but life will never be the same without him. I finally married my man. I never regret having this decision- to be with him for the rest of my life. Not just because I love him so much… but there’s a part of my whole being that only him can fill in. I never bothered of wondering if he loves me as much as I love him… what matters is I love him that’s why I need him to be in my life always.

Yes, I never wondered if he loves me- actions speak louder than words. He knows that. But he says “I love you…” everyday anyway.

I am childish at times and I get so irresponsible. I get mad and say hurtful words to him. But each time I do, he holds me close and says, "I love you (again…) and I understand… don’t explain at all…"

Sometimes, I fail, I lose my self worth… and I feel like I’m a failure. I start getting rude. But every time I do, he gives me a warm embrace and says, “I believe in you… everything works in God’s time… you will always be the best for me…”

I get tired staying in the house. I had to quit my job and be a full time mom. I feel bored. I miss my job. But each time I feel this way, he takes me out to a fancy restaurant… takes me for a walk. He would call a beautician to do my nails or give me hot oil. He stays with me taking care of our son, they hug me and I feel so adorable. They are the reasons why even in worst times, I know that I am living for a cause. They make me laugh and love life much more… and my world is wonderful. I realize I DON’T STAY IN THE HOUSE… but I AM FINALLY HOME.

We have an imperfect married life, imperfect relationship. I’m an imperfect wife. He’s not perfect, but for me, he is more than perfection. Nothing and NO ONE is ever perfect, but I know I am loved so perfectly much more than I wished for… or even deserve. These are just one of the many wonderful reasons why I will marry again soon… and I will marry the same man that I fell in love with 14 years ago. I will fall in love with him over and over again until eternity begins.

Thankyou for your nice comments you left me, in curiousity, I came to check your hubs, and see you are a returning hubber. Welcome back, I enjoyed reading this hub. I agree about relationships needing work. I am in an amazing relationship with someone very dear to me. Every day is like I am living another person's life,a life I wasn't meant to have. I am amazed that you had several proposals before you said yes and tied the knot. I am a beginner who just I think got lucky. Anyway, best of luck in your marriage and life. Glad to be a fan too.

Oh, to find the "one". We who are lucky enough to have done so must cherish it. My husband and I were together 22 plus years, we would have celebrated our 20th anniversary this summer. I will forever wish it had been our golden we were planning for. Yes we had disagreements, yes we compromised... alot. But at the end of the day, we knew with every breath, we were in love completely. I wish you the best, and enjoy every moment you can.

Days are not always perfect no matter with whom we live. Was every day of a person's childhood living with their parents filled with sunshine and laughter? Probably not. There were undoubtedly some cloudy days and tears. The same with marriage. But the joy of sharing one's journey with a loving mate is worth the effort. Two people can always pull through the rough times better than one and celebrate the good times by sharing them making them even better. Wishing you many happy days of marriage ahead!

@Peggy: Life is not perfect at all, and you're right my friend, it's the joy of sharing the ups and downs with a loving mate is more than enough to stay happy and be courageous enough even in the stormiest days of one's life. Thanks for the warm wishes, for dropping by again and for the friendship you share with me at HP. You inspire me to write much more! =)

This is a very beautiful hub. Love between couples which end up in marriage is a truly beautiful thing. Love can never be too selfish nor too arrogant. I love this hub, more towards your greater hubs in future.=)
