Today is my wedding anniversary… lucky number thirteen. I’ve now spent more than a third of my life married and just about half of my life with this wonderful woman. And those percentages will keep on creeping up. The way time is flying these days, I know 15 and 20 will be upon us in a blink.
And that prospect absolutely thrills me. I’m baffled by those men (and women) who fear commitment and view marriage as a restricting thing. On the contrary, I find it perfectly liberating. It’s a powerful and freeing thing to completely be yourself with another person, for better or worse. I suppose some people are able to do that with just anybody, but for me it doesn’t come easy.
