Love to be Had




"He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you."

- Bob Marley



People ask me sometimes if being married now is a hard adjustment. Every time I want to laugh. Of course it is hard. I come from a family of all girls - he grew up in a Bachelor pad. We don't agree on everything, we don't agree on a lot of things. We are two different people from very different worlds who dated for a year and a half and are sticking it out to be together forever. But ask me if I love it?



Yes. Every second of it.

Love this quote Mandy, it really does envelope a really beautiful perspective on love and marriage. Thanks for posting it! I'd love to find an artistic way to display some of it in my home.

What a truthful and beautiful quote. I love your honest attitude, some people feel that must portray that their marriage is perfect and always blissful. To me our ups and downs are what makes our marriage full of love.
