Me and my brother were talking the other day and he simply said, “Love and marriage is a never ending experiment and we are the scientists“.
That may not mean too much to you guys, but to mean that sums it up perfectly! I mean, we really don’t know what will come of anything we do in any relationship. That’s part of the excitement though. Scientists don’t become scientists unless they love the excitement of unveiling the unexpected. I mean, there are some things that have already been tested by other
fools scientists, like cheating and infidelity. I know what will happen. I will lose half of everything I ever earned, and everything I ever wanted (L). I dare not test that theory.
I don’t know however, what would happen if I came home with a puppy for instance. Would L think “OMG, he loves me enough to buy me a puppy and the puppy will become part of our family and we will love him forever and ever.” That is very possible, but not very probable…YET! She grew up with puppys so I don’t know. She very well could…….I’m suddenly realizing how terribly awful this example is.
The real point is this. We will face adversity in nearly every part of our lives. We aren’t going to know the answers. We aren’t going to know reasons why. But we know, we are committed to this thing called love and this lifelong experiment of marriage. We are going to find ways to make it work, because that’s our goal and our passion.
With me and L’s situation, we both love to shop! Well…she loves to shop as is evident by her looking at online shopping websites….EVERY DAY(just kiddin’ babe, I know you rest on Sundays). But, we don’t really make a lot of money. I mean we make enough to live in swanky super cool Ballston, but not enough to live in Ballston AND online shop daily. I know what we have to do, I know that more money needs to be made because we have plans, and dreams, and things that we want to do! Personally, I want 42 kids. I don’t know how much 42 kids will cost us, but I know I was probably pretty dang expensive (right mom?).
So, I need to get things brewing in my mental lab and figure out how exactly I’m going to make money so L and I can buy a home in The Hamptons with 44 rooms (one for us, and another one for my man cave)! Let me know if you guys have any ideas.
