“Our Romance Dies—All the Time”: I Never Fell in Love With My Husband

My husband has never made me feel like I should be scared to love him. I’ve never felt like he might break my heart. I knew when we took a leap of faith and decided to love each other forever that he meant it. He has always made me feel safe. That’s what I’ve always wanted in a husband; I needed to know that he was in it for me. I don’t need a Prince Charming. I need a partner, my other half. My heart is so full of love for my husband because he’s never made me afraid to love him with all that I’ve got.

When I say “I never fell in love with my husband” I don’t mean I’m not in love with him. Believe me, I am. From day one, he’s been there for me. He’s been a shoulder to lean on, he wipes my tears, celebrates with me at my highs and is there for me at my lows. He’s been consistent, committed and everything I need. I am so deeply loved by him.

I guess I just don’t believe that love is something you can fall into and expect to live happily ever after. It’s just not that easy. Life is too unpredictable and chaotic to think that marriage is always flowers, romance, passion, butterflies and being swept off of my feet. To me, the feeling of falling in love is only short term. It’s the honeymoon stage where unrealistic expectations exist. I choose to love him beyond that because I want our marriage to last. I choose to believe that marriage is trial and error, hard work, dedication, compromise, and sacrifice.

I choose to work every single day at this marriage and I choose to love him every second of those days for the rest of my life. I choose to face the hard times with him and I choose to wake up next to him every morning. I choose to believe I can always be a better wife and I choose to believe we will be together forever. In my marriage, failure isn’t an option. I will never choose to fail. I chose forever.

I guess that’s why I never fell.
