People start out in relationships not knowing what the future holds. Willie and I were together for 11 years before we got married. We started out as friends and then we carried on a long distance relationship for over a year before I moved to Boise and we moved in together.
We have lived together for so long that we know each other as well as any married couple. I didn’t think that it would be much different after we were married…but it does feel different. There is a feeling of protection, of security that was missing before. Something that makes me feel proud when I can say “husband”.
When you get married, things change. We made a promise when we spoke those vows. We are bound to care for each other now and in the future. We do not know what the future will bring but we know we can count on each other to be here when the future comes.
