Read Me on Living in the Gap

Marriage is complicated. It’s an ongoing challenge that requires energy and commitment beyond vows. I believe it is a commitment to compromise.

It was frightening to write about where my husband and I have been and how we got where we are, but when Cheryl Oreglia prompted me as part of the Survive Your Story Guest Exchange, I couldn’t say no. I hope you’ll take a moment to read my work on her site, and that you’ll come back Friday to read her story here.

“When we met, we were high schoolers. I lived with an abusive and conservatively religious family. Nathan was a way out.”
