A few years ago, an older relative made a casual observation that in a room full of couples Craig and I were the ones that seemed affectionate towards one another. My response was perhaps it was because we are the ones who have been married the shortest (sad logic if you ask me) and then we quickly moved on to another topic.
However that moment has stuck with me quite some time later. Surely we’ve gone through times where things weren’t great. Heck we’ve gone through times when we’ve wanted to strangle one another and stay far away. But when you add the days, weeks and months together and see them as years by and large we’ve chosen to live affectionately. Goofy and affectionate. That’s definitely our style.
