For the first 8 years of my relationship with Kati, I was stubbornly anti-marriage. We spent years working on our relationship, and it hasn’t gone to waste.
Everyone keeps asking me, but I don’t know what to tell them. Being a husband isn’t really any different than being a boyfriend. Why do others think it is?
For most of my life, I have worked on me. I have been making quiet internal efforts to analyze who I am, what I want, and who I should spend my time with. Because of this I now have a superpower.
In order to keep sane in a long-term live-in relationship, each person is going to need space. This doesn’t have to negatively affect intimacy, as long as you do it right.
Some sociology and relationship experts (whatever those are) assert that no one will ever experience the passion and excitement of their first relationship again, and that they should completely forget their first relationships. As much as this feels like common sense to me, I feel resistant to the notion.
Being unemployed has its way of giving you tons of time to search your thoughts. Stagnation is slow death, so I begin to ponder my future.
