My Life Would Suck Without You

What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.
–George Levinger

The writers of romance would have you believe that marriage is the end of the story. But it's really just the beginning. We may all start out like Cinderella, but somewhere along the way, even the best couples have a Taming of the Shrew moment or two {the Shakespeare Retold version is amazing, BTW}.

Mr. Bug and I were married 16 years ago today. Sometimes it's about the romantic, mushy stuff. Sometimes it's about the everyday business of life; work and kids and mortgage payments. Sometimes it's about the dysfunctional stuff {and you know we all have it}. Today, I'm celebrating all of that.

Happy Anniversary, Mr. Bug!
I love you.
We belong together.

Congrats and Happy Anniversary! Hope you have a lovingly fun day enjoying each others company, and may the dysfunction hold off at least until tomorrow.

Happy Anniversary!!! It is ours too! The bumpy road to 21 was/is good (when I am looking back...LOL)

Happy anniversary to you and your husband, Elizabeth.

Happy Anniversary guys!

I always said to Mr. P , its not about the wedding it's about the marriage. I think he gets it so that's probably why we're still together!
