Today is my husband's birthday. We've known each other for 10 years and I've spent the better part of my adult life with him. My husband is different than me. He was born outside of the US and his family and their culture and traditions are very different than my own. Those differences, along with challenges that arise in every marriage, have made us question, at times, whether we were making the right decision. Those differences, however, are also the reason I can overwhelmingly say "yes!" we are.
My husband isn't afraid. He's not trying to follow a path that is not his own. He is honest and loyal and passionate. He pushes me out of my comfort zone and for that, makes me a better version of myself. Ten years later we can still stay up all night long talking as though we had just met. He can make me laugh like nobody else can and to be by his side is to feel secure and happy.
