I’ve seen firsthand the pain and struggle that comes with divorce.

My parents were divorced when I was about five years old.

I know what I went through. I could see what my sister, mom, and dad went through.

That motivates me to be a better husband. That inspires me to invest in my relationship.

I am far from a perfect husband. I still put some of my wants and needs ahead of my wife’s. I need to take care of myself, my health, and my life. But I do constantly think about my wife, what she thinks, how she feels, and her wants and needs.

I do try to make my wife happy. I do try to prioritize my wife and our relationship. I do support her and encourage her. I do listen to her and try to help her.

I’m proud of my wife. I’m proud of our relationship. We argue. Things get rocky from time to time. But no matter what we go through, we are best friends and have each other.

We are basic. We are boring. We are homebodies. We do just about everything together. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

This is not a post knocking divorce. This post is a reminder to prioritize your people, relationships, and who’s most important to you.
