Wednesdays for Women- What does Marriage Mean to You

{To Inspire and Encourage}

Today I have my sweet baby sister writing to you, about What Does Marriage Mean to You?

What does Marriage mean to you?

Marriage is one of the most important things that you will ever do in your life, make it work and make it last.

Is there a difference between spending all your time together and being married? The answer is YES. 
Once you tie the knot the whole mechanics of the relationship changes you are tied to one another, you have made a commitment and you can't simply walk out when things don't go your way. 
You're in this for the long haul and that commitment makes all the difference.
The degree of love and affection that you share will intensify immeasurably you will find that there is potential in your relationship for the bonding of two souls within the security of marriage.

I always thought & said I would never date or marry anyone, yes in high school I liked guys but would never date ( besides some of them never really asked ). But that all changed in jan 04 when I meant the most amazing guy ever. We met on a Christian chat site, he was 10 years older then me, I was getting ready to graduate from high school, thinking about college to become a nurse. We chatted, phone calls for 6 months then my parents put a end to it because they/ me didn't really know him, but I knew I liked him. So after high school I decided to take a year of from college and babysit for my sister, so after living with her for a few months, she asked about this guy I told her we still email but nothing more, so she gave me permission to start calling him again. I was one happy girl.
 So in Dec 04 we met in person for the very first time, he was from the USA I was in Canada so long distance relationship was very hard.   He stayed for a few days and headed back but we kept in touch and he kept end coming to visit and getting to knew each other. 
In Aug 2005 our relationship went in a different direction  he asked me to marry him and I said yes. We started planing the wedding and  he was still living in the USA so we were planing long distance ( glad my sister was welling to help)  

So in May 2006  became husband and wife, I would not change a thing I'm the happiest girl there is, he treats me like a queen, he's never got upset and left...we would always work out what ever we would argue over. 
We never went to bed angry at each other and we still don't. 
We will be married 8 years this may. We have had our ups and down, tears and joys.

In May 07 he lost his dad and we found out we were expecting our first child. It was hard because we knew his dad would never met his grand kids.

In april 2010 we found out we were expecting baby # 2 and we were excited but on June 3 rd we had miscarried, but we just held on and knew God had his hand in it all. 
We did have a new baby 19 months ago I can't believe how fast they grow and YES she's daddy's girl.

If you always put God first your relationship will never stray because its all in Gods hands and he's leading and you are following.  


  1. Great post!! I wish our babysitter was so insightful!!

  2. Great most, marriage means a commitment, a faithful relationship with a man and a woman who love each other and are there for each other in good and bad times.

  3. An intact family is a happy family and it is always evident in the children if the family is happy so it is important to put family first.

  4. I love this post! What you mentioned are definitely things that need to be considered before making that big of a commitment. By the way, You have a beautiful family!
