Married life, in bullets

So far, marriage has been about...

- towel stealing
- tickle torture
- 24/7 exposure to farts, burps, no makeup look, messy hair, and ratty pambahay
- front-row seats to tantrums and meltdowns
- waking up with a start in the wee hours of the morning to freezing-cold feet pressing against your leg
- being at work very early in the morning or until late at night, depending on the other's work schedule
- not seeing other friends as often as before since you now have someone else's schedule to consider

Then again,

Marriage has also been about...
- laughing at stupid YouTube videos together
- 24/7 access to hugs, kisses, back rubs,  and reassurances that everything will be okay
- being told that you're beautiful/handsome even if you're in ratty pambahay, your hair is a mess, and you've yet to shower
- having someone that waits for you to come home
- falling asleep to the sound of their breathing
- not minding the other person's snoring because it somehow lulls you to sleep, and at least you're sure they're still breathing
- waking up in the middle of the night to put a blanket over the other person, then get pulled into a hug while they're still asleep
- knowing that you've married your best friend
- building a home together
- dreaming together

The good outweighs the "bad", always. ❤️
