About Us: Kate + Austin, Married 3 Years.

15 August 2012

The Davester and I have the seven year itch. That’s right. SEVEN years of wedded bliss. {Total lie, marriage is hard work, yo.} While we’re celebrating our anniversary this week, I’ve asked some of my favorite bloggers and their husbands to share some words on marriage.

Kate from Motley Mama is the newest-to-me blogger that I’m featuring this week.  I started reading her a few months ago and peeps?  I can’t stop.  Yes, yes, there are things like the fact that we have babies the same age and both dealt with the shit that comes with PCOS, but that’s not it.  If I had to sum her up, I’d say she’s honest, funny, and very candid about the realities of motherhood and life.  She certainly doesn’t blow sunshine and roses up your butt, but she isn’t a giant wallowing pessimist when she tells it exactly like it is.  She is a rarity.  What are you waiting for?

Wedding Picture

How many years have you been a couple & who liked whom first?

5 years. Austin was after me like white on rice.

What has being married taught you?

Always ask before eating the last piece of chicken.

What is the most fun thing the two of you have ever done together?

I'd like to say "have a baby," but then I remembered all the tearing. Ouch. We spent some time doing relief work in Haiti a few summers ago. It was 100 degrees with 100% humidity--but we had a great time and laughed a lot.

How do you resolve issues?  Do you ever go to bed angry?

My advice to any couple getting married is always "go to bed angry." Things always look better in the morning.

What is the secret to a happy marriage?

There is no secret. There's just a lot of work, selflessness, and the bizarre reality that you are in charge of your own happiness.
