Marriage is not beautiful.
Marriage is ugly, you see the absolute worst in someone. You see them when they’re mad, sad, being stubborn, when they’re so unlovable they make you scream.
But you also get to see them when they are laughing so hard that tears run down their face and they can’t help but let out those weird gargling noises. You see them at 3 am when the whole world is asleep except the two of you and you’re eating in the middle of the kitchen floor.
You get to see the side of them that no one else does and its not always pretty. It’s the snorting while laughing, it’s the tears when it feels like its all crashing down, it’s the farting, it’s the belching and bad breadth, it’s the random dances, it’s the anger and the joy.
Marriage isn’t a beautiful thing, but its amazing. It’s knowing that someone loves you so much and won’t leave you even though you said something terrible. It’s having someone have your back no matter what. It’s fights over stupid things, like someone not doing the dishes or picking up after themselves. It’s those nights you fall asleep in each others arms, feeling like there will never be enough time with them. It’s cleaning up the throw up or just rubbing their back when they are sick.
It’s the dirtiest, hardest but most rewarding job there is – because at the end of the day you get to crawl into bed with your best friend, the weirdest, most annoying, loving, goofy, perfect person you know.
Marriage is not beautiful but there is nothing more amazing.
