One of the biggest things I wanted to do with this blog since I first started it is this: normalize the idea that marriage is not always easy, and in fact that marriage is sometimes really tough. And that even when marriage can get really hard – that you don’t necessarily have to give up on your marriage either. That you and your spouse can fight for it. That other people’s marriages aren’t perfect either. That we’re not alone in whatever we’re facing in our marriages. To showcase marriages that survived.
So I started reaching out to other bloggers (& non-bloggers too), asking them to share their real life marriage survival stories. I figure the more we all stick together to show that marriages can make it – the greater chance we can have to help encourage someone who might currently be in a difficult spot in their marriage.
