Things That I’ve Learned On Our 21 Months Of Marriage



Today, we’re celebrating our 21 months of marriage here in the US and of course, I’ve learned a lot of things already since we jumped into this gay life of being a married couple.

We’ve had a lot of adjustments and crazy things that just happened ever since I got here. And everyday, I am always learning from this kind of relationship that we decided to be part of. Let me to tell you some of these…

WE’RE ALWAYS GAY- Yass, this must be self-explanatory right? But you know what, David and I- being a gay couple is such a huge help for us to keep the love burning. Being gay is being positive, no matter what sh#*ty situation is happening, no matter what can be and cannot be done, ‘no matter what’, ‘no matter what’…at the end of the day, we’re still the best team ever.

“You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and adore you.”

-Jane Austen: Pride and Prejudice

PATIENCE- 21 months of marriage is not that easy, especially we are in this intergeneration relationship who started from an LDR situation. Patience is what we always tell to each other whenever we are feeling down. Like what everybody says, “Patience is a virtue.” (with three snaps).

NEVER ENDING DIFFERENCES- I am talking not just about culture here, okay? We are also different from each other in terms of attitude and personas. And these aspects need to be embraced by both parties to make sure that our relationship is going to be strong. Everyday, I am learning every part of David’s whole personality which is dependable from what is going on and what he is feeling (and whatever phenomena is happening on him), and so does he to me. This is one of the reasons why we’re super connected, opposite attracts.

REMINDER: #SquadGoals – Plans and goals are the best things that we always talk about (especially David). Without these, everything is pointless. I am not a good planner like him, but hey, I am learning from him. The only thing is that, we both cram and get cranky when the time to reach this goal is getting near (and this will lead us to the second thing that I mentioned, PATIENCE).

MOVE ON, GIRL! – Uhuh! With three snaps again. David and I are just like most of our readers here, normal people who deal with some negative situations and crazy problems. No one wants to deal with those, right?! And this is what we always think about whenever we get into a little fight or trouble, MOVE ON (and yes, the three snaps).

Life is so big and crazy. Make every minute as fun as it can be. Don’t be so grumpy or tetchy, smile girl, yasss, there you go.

How about you, what are the things that you’re learning so far in your or with your better-half’s life? Let us know on the comment section below. Feel free to share it. 🙂
