One thing I quickly realized because of quarantine was that my marriage was far from perfect.
Every relationship has it’s problems. You can’t have a relationship without fights and disagreements because each person has their own ideas that make them an individual thinker.
I realized that my marriage wasn’t perfect because I didn’t feel like I had enough one on one time with my husband. I didn’t feel loved or appreciated because I wasn’t spending enough time with him. I guess it can be considered a good problem because after all these years all I wanted was to spend some time with him. I craved an at home date night consisting of dinner and a movie. Nothing complicated or expensive.
Being asked to stay home has been a blessing because I’ve been able to spend so much time with Brett that we normally don’t get to have together. I realized how much I missed him even though I see him everyday.
Brett has a million hobbies which means that he is always on the go. I travel with him some of the time but it’s too overwhelming for me to go to every single airshow and amusement park especially when I have migraines. This has forced him to slow down and stay home with me.
We still aren’t perfect but I’m so much happier. I know once our stay at home order is lifted Brett will be right back to traveling but I hope this time has shown him how important our time together is too.
How are your relationships holding up?

Great post 😁
Cherish the little things. And remind him how important it is to slow down. Compromise isn’t all that bad. The fact that you both still enjoy each other company and presence, says you both value each other. Space is needed, too. You want to miss someone to appreciate them even more.
So many little things add up to big things in a marriage. All of us experience the good and the bad. It sounds like everything is working out for you and that’s the way it should be.
