most important

I haven't been married for very long, and I know I have an eternity of marriage lessons before me. And even though we've been married less than one year, I've learned a lot about myself, Josh, and who we are as husband and wife.

I've learned that the words I love to say the most are "I love you."

And I've learned that the words I need to say the most are "I'm sorry."

I've learned that words of love are often synonymous with words of apology and that I always feel more love in light of forgiveness.

I didn't get married because I thought it would be easy or because I thought it would be perfect.

I got married because I love Josh and because I knew that even though I didn't really know what I was getting myself into, that by combining our faith and our love, we had a pretty good shot. And I feel that faith and love confirmed every single time I say "I'm sorry."

So, like I said, I don't feel like I'm a fount of marriage knowledge or advice. But I do know one thing: humility brings more love, satisfaction, and happiness than I ever realized.

I think the few first years of marriage are all about learning these lessons and that if you can come through those in tact your marriage stands a really good chance of making it!
