Have you ever read or watched The Notebook? One of my best friends just now watched it and loved it. If you haven't watched this movie you need to. Now. Just stop reading and go watch it.
The movie does something to you. Some movies are like poetry and speak to your soul.
Anyway, the quote from the movie above has somewhat become the mantra of our marriage. It is just like us. Two passionate people who are totally different who insist on being together. We have to be. We work on this every day. Every. Single. Day.
Some times it is really hard. Sometimes I scream and pound his chest and just don't understand. Sometimes he's the one to be mule headed and stubborn. But we always make up. We always agree that we will never see eye to eye but we both are in awe of one another's opinions.
We've tried everything. Me being a submissive wife does nothing for Nick. He begs me to fight him because that's when we see into one another's souls. We walk away from fights knowing more about one another than we ever thought possible.
The only good thing about fighting (I hope!) is that the children KNOW that we love one another and that fighting is okay. Just because we fight doesn't mean we don't love one another. We have to be together. We are one another. It's just that simple.
