When our little guy gets sandwiched between us at Mass, he reaches over for one of my hands and one of his father's. He brings all our hands together on his lap and then looks up at me with the biggest smile. It melts my heart every time. And today it made me think about how important our love as a married couple is to our family. So I wrote about it on the blog. #linkinprofile#marriage#catholickids#catholicmarriage
"In spite of what's been lost and what's been gained, we are living proof that love remains"
This year has been a test of our faith, strength and love. I feel like this first picture really shows the depth of the pain we have experienced together, and held onto each other through it all. (You can swipe through the others to see more happy days.) Honestly, losing Alice has been a huge strain on our marriage. Child loss is always difficult on relationships, and although we have had our ups and downs, our love and commitment and willingness to work has always prevailed. I love you @dallasbertola Happy 2nd anniversary my dear husband 💜#childloss#loss#grief#love
When people talk about finding love or the perfect mate, I get mad. There is NO such thing out there. People are messes and screw ups. What you need to do is just be happy alone, first. Then be happy if you meet someone who has your back no matter what and loves you through anything. Chris found me for that. I found him. We are the furthest thing from perfect on this planet. I seriously don't believe there is ANY other person that would deal with us the way we do. We are odd. We are different. I have never met two people that tick the way we do yet. The point is. Find someone that doesn't want perfect. Find someone that will just choose you everyday because every other person on the planet is boring to them. Find someone that chooses to love you , not the illusion of you. Life is gritty. Either you choose to love people through grit or you move on. It's pretty simple. Both ways are ok. 😉 #life#love#relationships#marriage

Do not look at her as if she is only your wife, that's not the only title she has, she had a title before that which is more dear and valuable. Which is, a title of a daughter, a daughter who is loved and respected, so do not disrespect her or abuse her. She was sent to a mother or father in a form of a gift from Allah SWT, so protect her. Try to understand these simple factors and surely you will keep your wife happy with absolutely ease. Ps. Only thing that comes close to abuse which is allowed, is play fighting 😁✌🏼#islam#muslim#daughter#wife#marriage
Breakdown of text: Your parents raised you. You've had some positive experiences growing up & some negative experiences. Hold on to the positive childhood experiences; let go (be made whole) from the negative experiences. These experiences has formed your character up to this point, but marriage is going to take you on a journey to a better you. Also, you're not your parent (s), what they did or did not do may not work for you. Your marriage is your marriage, your spouse is your spouse. Cleave to your spouse & the Lord with honesty (open/pure heart), communication, & prayer as God makes you one flesh. Marriage does not look or feel good at times; inspite of what it appears to look & feel like; understand this, God is making you one flesh & working everything out for your good because you love Him and you have been called according to His purpose. #wordofgodwillnotgovoid#oneflesh#godswill#marriage#marriedcouples#christianmarriage#covenantkeepers#newlyweds#instagram#marriagegodsway#marriageadvice#marriagetip#1flesh_marriageisministry
