Today marks the 14th year of marriage for me and my husband Randy. We both are very happy and I daresay happier than we've ever been and I love him more today than I ever did.
We have had a really rough marriage and struggled for many years, in fact we were even legally separated for a time and were going to get a divorce. But I went through some counseling that taught me that I need to love myself and find my own self-worth and all kinds of other great stuff - and not to look to Randy for my importance, and Randy made some changes and we got back together even stronger than before.
Sometimes when we are aggravated with each other the boys ask are we going to get separated again, so we've decided that next year on our 15th anniversary we are going to renew our vows. This will be mainly to show our kids we are committed to each other so they aren't always wondering if we are splitting up again, as well as to show our friends and family and ourselves our commitment.
