"Marriage isn’t 50/50, it’s 100/100." This is really insightful. Will be pondering this!!

Oh my gosh, my husband and I just celebrated out 15th anniversary on November 1st! Happy anniversary to you both. Totally agree with everything you listed here.

Congrats and happy anniversary! My wife and I celebrated 21 years back in July. I agree with all of your assessments.

Also worth noting: the George Washington's dream SNL skit was the best thing I've seen from SNL in a long time!

That SNL skit had us laughing pretty hard! I would also like to posit that Twizzlers are not licorice (but they are gross). I’m one of those weirdos who really enjoys the real deal black licorice, but somehow I don’t think anyone is handing that out as Halloween candy πŸ˜‰ And happy anniversary! A hearty yes to the 100/100 approach.

Congratulations on your anniversary! Keeping that commitment to your vows to God is hard, beautiful work. We celebrated fifty years in June. So rewarding.

To piggyback off the candy theme, sometimes marriage can be like an expired bag of Twizzlers or hard Tootsie Rolls. And then you hit a season when it’s a beautiful box of imported fine chocolates, so rich and delightful.

God bless your union.

Thank you so much for sharing, Tsh.

And what wise marriage advice - not just quality, but quantity. Sometimes, especially in tired seasons, just 'being there' means an awful lot.
