Having to carry out our relationship across an ocean for a few days brings back some flashbacks of our first year of dating where we would have to do the long distance thing for months on end.
The thing about some of the most difficult parts of our relationship thus far is that so many of the hard parts ultimately helped us as a couple. Having to be long distance for a while taught us how to communicate. Living far from family and the majority of our friends meant we had a lot of space to just focus on the two of us.
Obviously we have a lot of fun together. Fun is a good word for our marriage. But it’s one that’s definitely been strengthened by less pleasant “make-or-break” challenges, and it’s always been hard to recognize that in the middle of them.
