Kevin and I will have been married 39 years in April. It seems hard to believe. Often, he will tease and say it’s been the best 34 years of his life. I know
exactly what he is saying when he subtracts five years because the first five years of our marriage were rocky, to say the least.
We married in our late twenties. I was an immature believer and Kevin was an unbeliever. We thought we could make it work. We couldn’t! We fought and separated many times that first year of marriage. We had no idea how to resolve conflict in a mature, let alone Godly way.
