What almost 15 years of the married life have taught me It seemed so far away: getting married, having family, reaching the “teen” years of time together. Then…poof! It’s there!! I thought people were making up the “time goes fast….” statement. That’s how life works. That’s how time runs. That’s how marriage goes———-quickly. Beautifully and challengingly. When my husband and I got married almost 15 years ago I’d say we were the cliché couple. We were young and in love.
