You know, I wrote this when I was not married, but when sitting down rereading this piece and the comments. I have to agree with your comment...marriage is similar, but when the flame burns again...it is good; very good.
In my marriage, I have seen the ugly side and have enjoyed the happy times...to be honest I would not trade it for another because when it is good...it is real good. We are struggling together side by side and it makes all the more pleasant.
Thank you sweetie for such a short and meaningful comment. Pardon the delay in response.
