Couples From the Past
During World War II Julia enlisted into the Office of Strategic Services. While based in Ceylon, Sri Lanka the two met and were married on September 1, 1946. From that day on, Julia and Paul were a team. Equally supporting each other in their passions and never forgetting to laugh, have fun, and most of all...love each other.
Dave and I have definitely had our ups and downs in the near 8 years that we have been married. But, after looking more into the love life of Julia and Paul, I have learned that if you selflessly love the person your have chosen to stand by in life, marriage can be a very beautiful and joyous journey.
Marriage, and relationships in general are hard. Heck, I would definitely be lying if I didn't say there were a few times in my own marriage when calling it quits seemed much easier and more enticing than doing the work that was required to fix the problems we were experiencing. However, after deeply contemplating that idea each time it presented itself, I knew in my soul it wasn't the right choice for me. Though I do believe that there are definitely some instances when it is better for two individuals to go their separate ways, I truly believe that with the proper guidance, help, and patience, broken relationships can be made whole and the love you always dreamed of having in your life can beautifully flourish beyond anything you had ever hoped for or imagined.
