I'm thinking out loud here bear with me.
Hubby and I have been married for 2 years. Someone will see us holding hands and ask how long we've been together. When we tell them they always say "I thought so." We also get the "how cute, you're still on your honeymoon" comments. And the dreaded, "just give it a few years and you will be throwing hair dryers around too."
What are these about? Is there some sort of unwritten rule that says after you have been married a set amount of time your relationship goes to crap? That you are no longer aloud to hold hands or kiss? Do you have to throw hair dryers?
Why is it that couples who have been together for 15 years feel their marital advise is more sound then ours. We are the ones still holding hands, they are the ones fighting every night. I don't know, it seems like we have the better relationship.
It seems to me that if the fighting couple would listen to the blissfully happy "honeymoon" couple the fighting couple might be able to solve a few problems and go on a "second honeymoon".
My grandparents have been married a long long time. They still hold hands. I've never seen them fight. In this case, yes listen to my grandparents marital advice over Hubby and I's. But I don't think time always makes it better. Wine tastes better with time, but most everything else molds or goes sour.
Are my grandparents a rare exception to the "honeymoon" rule? Is it possible that Hubby and I will remain to be this happy for the rest of our lives? Is it possible that neither of us will ever throw a hair dryer? It seems like a huge possibility to me. But what do I know. I've only been married for 2 years right.
