I was just thinking back to when my husband and I were engaged. I loved that 6 month season of our relationship. It was a time when I knew he would be my husband very soon, but the anticipation of our wedding was still building up. Our relationship didn’t change much, but our commitment level had. Marriage was on the horizon for us and we were beyond excited to enter into a deeply intimate relationship…for the rest of our lives! Marriage is a fantastic blessing, and I brag about the benefits every chance I get. However, marriage also has hard seasons that tested our love and character. There are a few things that my husband and I did that really helped fortify the foundation of our relationship.
