In nine days I'll be happily married for three years. In that time I can say that Courtney and I have learned a lot about each other. Being married to and living with someone you are compatible with is an amazing thing. You have a special place where the outside world doesn't know. You also have routines that seem to make everything stable. In a relationship, stability is comfort that we sometimes overlook.
As my relationship with Courtney has progressed, we have found our little routines in the world that seem to bring us back together. As with most people by the end of the day you find yourself sprawled out in a comfortable spot releasing that day's worries and passing the time before bed time. For me and Courtney, we started a tradition that we didn't even realize we were doing. We would both be tromping around the house doing our end of the day routines and we would end up in this one spot. It was a place that only we knew. A safe place - calm and quiet. It was a everyday spot that became a refuge from our worries and cares. It was where we left everything else behind. It was just us. This place is called "the nook." Its about two feet to left of my spot (which I have not named yet.)
I love my wife very much but I think I love her even just a little bit more when she is in that spot.
