I joke that 35 years ago this weekend, my future best friend said, “I do.” She probably didn’t know what she was getting into. The truth is neither of us did.

Marriage is hard. Really hard. Probably best that neither of us knew at the time.

Thank you Mr. Woolsey, for so succinctly putting the travels and travails of marriage into words and pharases conveying so much of the heartfelt feelings of a true marriage commitment. At a mere 33+ years; our marriage is behind y'alls a bit, yet I/we plan to keep trailing along, riding up when needed to help, or when a bit of advice can be found in yours/our words that might be of help to myself or another one on this same important journey.
