It seems unfair that I only have one post currently marked as “My Experience As a Husband” considering that this is one of the biggest parts of my life. I love my wife dearly. We have been married for 10 years now and going strong. This Monday my wife will be celebrating her 30th anniversary of birth. Of course this is 29 the sequel as my wife insists she is not turning 30.
I guess it is time for an introduction. My bride is Susan. She is not a geek, but she does love Science Fiction and Fantasy. We met when she was 15 and dated for 4 years before getting married. She was born and raised for a while in California. I like to joke about it but she was born on a farm. Technically she was born in a house on a chicken ranch that her grandparents managed in Mira Loma, CA. She still lived in CA when I was there as a young boy but moved to Arizona at 11 and then to Oregon at 14. June 18th 1999 when she was 15 her family arrived in Oklahoma. The following day we met at Youth Camp. We are the exception that proves the rule.
We have had hard times including losing 3 children through miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. Statistically we should have been driven to divorce but through it we have been driven closer together instead of apart. I wish I could figure out what makes our marriage work and give that to others, but the truth is we work because God holds us so long as we refuse to let go.
As I go forward I plan on writing more about my lovely bride and our marriage.
