38 of 100

38. Would you rather be in a relationship after the honeymoon period ends, or be single?

I definitely choose to be in a relationship.  I don’t feel like the honeymoon period is over for my husband and me, although I guess it is by some measures.

We don’t still face every day in a goo-eyed trance, but our relationship has never been stronger.  We have replaced the butterflies with an unshakable confidence that we are better together, and are fully committed to us. 

We’ve been together almost 22 years, and have certainly been through more than our fair share of struggles, including 20 years of seemly endless medical hurdles.  He is my rock, and I am his.  He is also my hope, my joy, my comfort, and my hero.

We know from experience that we put each other first, and support each other no matter what.  We never had to wonder how we could survive situation x, because we have already survived so many terrible, unexpected, and undeserved obstacles.  We have not only survived, but have thrived and become much more successful in many ways than we would have ever once dared to dream.

We are best friends, and share a dream for our lives and future.  We continue to have endlessly wonderful adventures, and plan and invest in our future as if we will always be together.  May it always be so.
