Elysha and I celebrate 15 years of marriage today.
When I think about our marriage, I often find myself hoping that Clara and Charlie someday experience the same happiness and love that I have enjoyed over the last 15 years.
Marrying someone who you still can’t quite believe chose to marry you
Enjoying 15 years of marriage that somehow still feel like 15 minutes of marriage
Partnering with someone who knows you better than you know yourself
Finding someone who will fight for you to the ends of the earth
Mostly, I hope they someday find themselves trapped in a vicious, never-ending circle of happiness, as each person in the marriage struggles like hell to promote and preserve the happiness of the other at all costs.
There isn’t a day when I don’t think about what I can do to bring ease and joy into Elysha’s life, and I think she does the same.
It’s hard to imagine a more perfect partnership, but that is what I hope for my kids someday.
