My Family

Family by definition

Family is defined as a basic social unit consisting of parents and their children, considered as a group, whether dwelling together or not: is that true though? If you don't have children yet but you are married isn't your spouse your family, I say yes. If you have friends that you are super close to then could would you even consider them as your family. I certainty think so..... I have made friends while in the Army that I consider to be family. Just as I do my best friend Kat. She is my best friend and always helps me with my problems.

Friends are Like Cousins.

When You Need Advice

I love my friend dearly I always thought of her as my sister but now that my husband is my priority and first in my life I view her more as a cousin. I can still go to her for advice and always hang out with her but when John and fight now I don't run to her due to the fact this isn't some high school relationship. The key is when you need advice is to just talk it out with your spouse, dragging parents and friends into the issues makes them have a view on your spouse that maybe isn't ideal.

Just John and I

Dates the Honey

Making Time to Still Have Fun

The key to having a successful relationship is to continue to have fun. You want to go out on dates, The worst thing is to not have fun time together. There is lots of inexpensive dates if you cant afford a night out on the town. No matter what you two need alone time.

He is on Your Side

Taking Sides

I love John and my relationship. When we have disagreements we take each other sides and then when we are alone we work it out. I know I may be young to most people but the idea is that we work it out. I love that even when we fight about bills we work it out. I hear that bills are always a problem that and sex. Bills may cause problems because you need to make a budget so you need to just accept that the money is both of yours and that bills and children are priority.

      Marriage is definitely an adventure! There will be times when you disagree with your spouse. That is natural since you have come from different backgrounds, and maybe even different cultures. The key, like you said, is that you work together to work it out. That is what we do!
