This is me and my man, Ryan. I love him very much. Marriage has been exactly what our vows predicted: “for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish from this day forth…” We’re only 18 years in, but we’ve been through these highs and lows together. To tell you the truth, it hasn’t always been apparent that our marriage would survive the lows, but God has helped us and I believe He always will.
