What Seven Year Itch?

While setting up a wedding over the weekend I met a bride-to-be and her mother as they were checking out the site for a wedding next summer.  We started chatting and the bride complimented me on my wedding rings.  Her mother asked me how long I’ve been married and I replied, “Seven years this week.”  She then asked, “How’s it going?” 

I thought this was such a genuine question.

Of course I replied by saying, “It’s great.  He puts up with working with/for me so things must be pretty good.  We’ve been together for 12 years, though, so I like to get credit for the first 5 years we put in!”

Today is our 7th wedding anniversary and I can honestly say that I feel so lucky in love.  We are best friends and partners in the most sincere way.  We work together, play together and we even make it a point to fight nicely.  We can spend long days working together on weddings and at the end the evening I feel so fortunate to have spent my time with him.  We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen and so far we’re surviving that quite nicely, which I think is an indicator that we can survive just about anything!

Everyone’s favorite blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe, starred in the film The Seven Year Itch which shined a light on the idea that at a certain point people start to reevaluate their relationships and may develop an “itch” that needs scratchin’.  I am confident that David and I will continue our “You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” relationship for many, many years to come.
