Marriage to Monsieur has never fit all of my pictures and I know that is the same for him. I don't get a card or present on my birthday or other holidays. But sometimes I get a great pricey gift when I least expect it. It's hard to give up my bourgeoise tendencies.
We have discovered many new byways by being together. One way or the other we have learned a ton from each other over the years. We make a team, albeit an unusual one.
Funny, we don't seem to get bored with each other. This is surprising because we are "chalk and cheese" and spend a lot of time together since we both work from home. Of course, we do get frustrated...no question. But that is part of not having one's way all the time. You thought you learned how to deal with that as a kid but "rats"....not the case. I still want my way.
I think one could have had another marriage, another life with different challenges but they wouldn't necessarily be better ones. I would say that we have grown on each other, from puppy love to loving loyally.
Here's to us. Here is to Monsieur and Me. Pour toujours.
