By the time Andy and I reached our wedding day, we had known eachother approximately 7 months. Instead of settling down after marriage, we sold everything we had, and stuffed the rest into backpacks and decided to travel/possibly move to Central America. We have truly had a magical time so far full of romance and adventure. However, traveling together for an unknown amount of time, going hostel to hostel, not knowing the language (thank goodness he is fluent), dealing with sickness and all the unknowns of traveling without a game plan definitely can put a lot of pressure on a relationship. Add PMS, a painful flare-up of sciatica (yes, I have all sorts of health issues), and conflict is bound to happen. And it has. And I am so thankful (after some time of course). It really has brought us closer together and has helped us really realize what are weaknesses are; and that has allowed us to be more prayerful about being a better spouse and serving eachother's needs. Conflict seems bigger when once you're married, but the resolving part is so much more meaningful...and fun (hehe).
