That is not a statement you’ll hear me make regarding my marriage. You won’t hear me say, “I didn’t sign up for my husband to be gone 5 days a month or 20 days a month.” “I didn’t sign up for my husband to play golf every week.” “I didn’t sign up to live hundreds of miles from my family.”
I have heard friends tell me they “didn’t sign up” for whatever changes have occurred in their lives. Whether it’s a spouse’s new job or simply a new routine.
I signed up to be married Kris Takle. Not what he does or doesn’t do.
I signed up for him. Period.
In the meantime, life happens. Change is usually inevitable. Tomorrow may look different from today. We, as partners in love and marriage, have to adjust.
Because, we are a team.
He needs my support just like I need his.
Loving Kris Takle. That’s what I signed up for.
My lover is mine, and I am his. Song of Solomon 2:16
