Surviving Marriage

Surviving Marriage

“Early love is exciting and exhilarating. It’s light and bubbly. Anyone can love like that. But after three children, after a separation and a near-divorce, after you’ve hurt each other and forgiven each other, bored each other and surprised each other, after you’ve seen the worst and the best– well, that sort of love is ineffable. It deserves its own word.”
― Liane Moriarty, What Alice Forgot

I haven’t been through all of these trials, but I can absolutely relate to this quote and believe these are some of the truest words ever written about marriage.

  1. I absolutely LOVE that quote. (handsome couple, too by the way)
    The words definitely resonate with me. I’ve only been married five years (this is a second marriage) but we have come close to the edge and quite recently.
    We’ve experienced extreme lows, the most extreme of joys and many points in between.

    Nice blog you have here from a fellow classmate of Blogging U 101.

  2. Yes, I love that quote too. It perfectly captures the extremes of marriage and the fact that it is a journey of endurance at times. Marriage is tough and exhausting in-between the good times. Good luck to you!!

  3. You sent me to my dictionary tonight to look up ineffable; it’s the perfect word! I’m happy to have found you, and look forward to reading your blog, but I’d like to know the first name that goes with your pretty face.

    • Hi Susie, I’m Adrienne! Thank you for visiting my blog.:) A teachable moment…every teacher loves it when someone actually looks up a word they don’t know! This is one of my favorite quotes about marriage because it really sums it up pretty well.
