So, I want to thank you if you’ve made it through the whole bloggers on marriage series. I know it’s such a departure from usual posting, so thanks for indulging all of mushy love junk while Dave and I celebrated our anniversary this week. It has been so much fun reading all of the different perspectives on marriage and love and just how to make it work.
We still have a few more for you tomorrow too!
How many years have you been a couple & who liked whom first?
Michelle: We’ve been together for ten years. Typing that out seems weird. Ten years is a long time, but it feels like a blink.
Dave: I liked you first. I’m not even sure if you like me now?
What has being married taught you?
Dave: Being married has taught us to get over shit.
Michelle: We really don’t dwell on the past. Mostly.
What is the most fun thing the two of you have ever done together?
Dave: This is a family website, we can’t really talk about the MOST fun thing we’ve done. So… the second most fun thing we’ve ever done is our honeymoon.
Michelle: I can’t believe you want me to say that. We went to Ireland and Paris and it was a riot. Literally. There was a riot in Paris, I was sick in Dublin, and we still managed to have an incredible time.
How do you resolve issues? Do you ever go to bed angry?
Our issue resolving involves a lot of yelling, but then we’re over it. Dave totally goes to bed angry because he can fall asleep in a matter of seconds regardless of circumstance. I usually stew… on the couch and then get more mad because he is all peacefully asleep in our bed and I’m on the couch stewing. He would like it noted that he knows I’m really mad when I storm off to the couch.
What is the secret to a happy marriage?
Michelle: Picking the right person in the first place. That is the secret, don’t settle for someone mediocre.
Dave: And sex. Great sex.
