Through the next 10 years together, I know that my husband truly loves me. If there’s such a thing as a love measurement tool, I’m pretty sure he loves me more. His temper has improved through the years, and I can’t remember the last time he threatened me with divorce. I have also become a better person because of him, too. He is the sweetest and most honest person I have ever met. We have gone through thick and thin, and I know that if we work hard on our marriage, our love could last forever.
Every now and then, he would say that he loves me more than our child. I think he says that when I’m paying too much attention to our kid.
Every now and then, he would say that he loves me more than our child. I think he says that when I’m paying too much attention to our kid. Sometimes, I think he is testing me. That could be paranoia taking over. Whatever the case, I would put up a lovey-dovey face, and say I love him more, too. I would then tell myself that I’m not hurting him by telling a half-lie. (OK, a lie is a lie.)
