In January 2007, I said “I Do” in front of 300 of our closest family and friends. The commitment didn’t seem absurd or difficult at the time, I was head over heels in love… and we were both eager virgins:) our excitement and anxiousness to get married fed our courage to say those two little words! We were invincible and the center of attention for a few short hours. After the party dissolved and we made our getaway, the reality of our responsibilities as husband and wife sank in, as well as the truth about sex!The first three and a half years were wearisome, trying, heartbreaking and even devastating…as far as our sex life goes…every other aspect of our marriage has been close to perfect:) No matter how different we are as individuals we are always on the same page, in sync with our goals and motivation, ready to tackle any mission God sets before us. However, marriage was not designed to exemplify how to be a best friend or even perfect roommates, its a depiction of the INTIMATE relationship between Christ and the church. Without intimacy the relationship between a husband and wife is not fulfilled, hence the drawn out heart break my husband and I have carried around the last few years.
My name is Jennifer and I began this blog to share my journey as a wife, unveiled, uncovered and wide open, to purge my heart of the pain I have encountered AND to encourage other women in the world who are, have been, or will soon be wives. Marriage is an interesting and complicated relationship and no one should feel like they are going through it blindly. I want this to be an open forum where women can ask questions and share experiences in an effort to be heard and get advice. So please join me as I dive head first into my life as a wife and the lessons I am learning.
