What is Married Life Really Like?


Spending your life in marriage with someone you love is one of life’s great joys.  Yes, married life can also be one of life’s greatest challenges.  If you polled 12 couples about married life, you’d probably received 12, or even 24, different views.

With nearly 12 years of marriage life, I have a real appreciation of marriage.  Although, before marrying my wife, I never dreamed I would get married.  I am happy to be living this married life and enjoying all of it’s benefits.

This post is the first in my series of my most popular posts.  After 265+ posts I realize some of you, who are new to my site, may have missed some of my most popular posts.  So, over the next 5-10 days I will republish the top posts from my blog, and the sites I contribute to on a regular basis.  During this time I will be finishing up some exciting projects which will help you grow as a family leader.  Enjoy and GET ready for some new stuff in May!
