WOW, really? Was that comment even necessary, Grace? I'm offended and I didn't write this blog post, nor am I one of the "convincing manipulator" men you refer to. You know, most of us don't have the self-awareness and the clarity to see our role in a bad situation or a situation gone wrong, and even less have the balls to put it out there for the mercy of the cruel masses on the internet. Maybe instead of keeping your guard way, way up you should evaluate the caliber of people you are associating with and try to do some soul-searching of your own to realize your role in the situations in which you find yourself. Everyone has a role in unpleasant situations, everyone gets comfortable, everyone gets complacent. There is no person on this planet that is the same person after a few years of marriage that they were during the first few months of dating.
It just goes to show that I really shouldn't auto-subscribe to follow-up comments because they always make me feel bad about the state of the world and how much consideration and care we have for each other. And that makes me really sad.

Both these blog posts were so wonderful, and even though I'm in a very happy and successful marriage, it's been nice to see what I'm doing right and what I need to do better at. I completely agree with the moving away thing, too -- we moved 5 hours away right when we got married and had to depend on each other, had to spend our time with each other, had to talk things out. I think we are much, much stronger and happier than we would have been had we stayed close to family and friends.
Good list, and thanks again for sharing. Hopefully someday you will find the perfect person to remember all these things with. Lots of love, and look forward to the next post!
I'm due in 6 weeks with our 3rd child and I've never had a baby carrier! I would love one!
