I Choose Both

When you’re married,  you don’t choose which part of your husband you like. In a relationship, you need to choose both sides of your husband, the good side and the bad. Think back to your wedding vows, you probably said something very similar to: “I take you to be my lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.” Did you catch it? I put it in bold font for you so wouldn’t miss it. You choose to be with your husband for better or for worse. That means, whether he is being a pain or is making you smile, you choose him. There are things about your husband that you may not always be fond of. It may be annoying, petty little things and it may be bigger things. But you chose him. Don’t forget that. You made a vow to him and to God that no matter what life throws at, you will always love him and be faithful to him. That means, choosing both. Love every pigheaded part of him. Every annoying habit. Even the things that make you angry (talk about those issues, don’t let them simmer). Just remember, you didn’t marry half of him, you married all of it. The good and the bad. Choose both.
