This is a time to reflect on what works and what doe not and any changes that need to be made in order to have an amazing 10 more years.
Celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary means commitment
Many couples that are celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary understand commitment. Through the first ten years of marriage couples are learning about commitment by giving up things for the other person. They are also learning that commitment means being there for it all and understanding each other’s desires and needs. Committing to walk with them through these things is really what having a committed marriage means. Most marriages that make it to 10 years know the meaning of commitment and striving to make their marriage work at all costs.
Celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary means comfort
At the time of your 10th wedding anniversary, you are usually very comfortable with your spouse. You have spent 10 years getting to know the details of your spouse and their heart, which helps you to be comfortable and feel safe with them. Comfort can come in all forms in the safety of a marriage. Being comfortable with who you are with that person can bring a feeling of trust and safety. Being comfortable after 10 years of marriage is a fulfilling commitment.
Celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary means hard days
Many people who are celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary most likely have small children; this can be a time of long and hard days. Having small children requires a lot of time and patience and can be hard on a marriage that is not strong. During those times of child rearing, a marriage can be put on the back burner. These hard days will soon pass and pushing through these times will build an even stronger foundation for the years to come. Marriage will bring hard days but also will come with glimpses of beauty and grace.
