Marriage is kind of a big commitment folks.
“No kidding!” you might say…or, “What did you think it was going to be like?!” Well, what I think is that when we all start out on this journey, nothing seems hard. It all kind of falls into place and the relationship is full of excitement, adventure and unending hope for the future.
But then the bumps happen, the kids come along, (and as cute as they are, they do tend to put a kink in the romance), the job layoffs happen and the challenges begin to test theÂ resiliencyÂ of your relationship. This is where some relationships begin to falter and break apart.
But, for those of us who are in it for the long haul and who really hope to stick to the commitment we made, and maybe even find our way back to the serene and romantic days (before the chaos of children and high demand jobs), this website I found might be the ticket.
It’s called Project MarriageÂ Â - it is run by a team of three fantastic women and I absolutely love the premise of their site:
Project MarriageÂ is an interactive love movement designed to get back to the simple joys of marriage and the love that brought you there.
What you’ll find at Project Marriage is the following:
- A variety of monthly and themed romantic challenges to take on with your spouse to enliven your relationship.
- Marriage stories from readersÂ Â - the romantic, the awkward and fun.
- Interesting, no holds barred articles like 8 Reasons Not to Contact His MistressÂ andÂ Saving Our Marriage
- Fun reads like the Marriage Survival KitÂ
In short, you’ll want to add this site to your reader and maybe even submit your own story to be shared. The one thing I learned from reading this site is we’re not alone in our marriage ebbs and flows.
We all have highs and lows and we were all in love at the start of it all, so if you’re up for a challenge – consider letting the gals over at Project Marriage inspire you to work on it a bit.
