The FunYuns have made it through one glorious year of marriage!
People say that the first year of marriage is the hardest. Unsurprisingly too as two totally independent individuals and two wildly different personalities come together as one. But, so far this first year of marriage has been nothing short of wonderful.
Don’t get me wrong. It hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. Our egos have had plenty of clashes and full on meltdowns. But all of those moments of stubbornness, fear, anger, worry, and weakness just gave us opportunities to communicate better and live out love.
So, some simple tips and things I’ve learned in my first year of marriage (taken from a man who knew more about marriage before ever being able to be in one, and from my movie of the year About Time):
- “Don’t insist on your rights, don’t blame each other, don’t judge or condemn each other, don’t find fault with each other, but accept each other as you are, and forgive each other every day from the bottom of your hearts.”
– Dietrich Bonhoeffer
- “Just try to live every day as if [you’ve] deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of [your] extraordinary, ordinary life… because we’re all traveling through time together, everyday of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride.”
Amen to that.
Cheers to a loving husband and baby daddy who brings me so much joy, and highest praises for our Lord who will continue sanctifying and preserving this marriage for His glory. I love you Sungjin Yun!
