Although it may not seem like it, there is a big difference between married couples and engaged couples. The may look similar except for a wedding band, but married people know things that engaged couples haven yet learned.
Laura & Brock came to me for a session...just because.  Because of a lot of reasons.  Married people have so many reasons to celebrate each other.
WHAT MARRIED PEOPLE KNOW
Married people know that it's just as important to remain separate, individual, amazing people while at the same time being everything to and for someone else:

Married people know that being able to laugh at themselves solves more problems than anything else:

Asset161981

Married people know that there is always someone who they can lean on:

Asset161982

Married people carry each other through the harder times...both take turns carrying and being carried:

Asset161983

Married people know that the path they walk on isn't as straight and narrow as they used to think:

Asset161984

But married people also know that bumps in the road eventually even out:

Asset161985

Married people sometimes find that one another changes in an unexpected way, but they also know that those changes allow them to grow together:

Asset161986

Married people know that living to honor each other is more than a promise:

Asset161987

It is an act that they have to consciously do every day:

Asset161988

Married people look at each other with knowing glances after congratulating newly engaged couples:

Asset161989

Because they know that marriage is the most wonderful, most difficult journey that a couple can begin:

Asset161990

Married people know that as the months blend into years, keeping love fresh and alive is a daily job:

Asset161991

It is a wonderful, rewarding job, but one that must be done every day without fail, and that's hard:

Asset161992

Married people know that loving each other through the years is different than feeling in love when you first meet:

Asset161993

Married people can tell when each other need something and do their best to provide it:

Asset161994

Married people know that marriage is a marathon.

Asset161995

Married people know that sometimes they have to be the first to say, "I'm sorry".

Asset161996

Married people know that they can trust each other to be forgiving, because there is no room in marriage for grudges:

Asset161997

Married people know that there is no person on earth that knows them better:

Asset161998

Engaged couples think they will always feel as in love as they do the day they get engaged. Married couples know that it gets so much better:

Asset161999

Married people work hard to make each others' dreams come true:

Asset162000

Married people know that some dreams take longer to come true and do everything in their power to help them happen sooner:

Asset162001

Married people know that there isn't another person on the planet that will go to bat for them like their spouse:

Asset162002

Married people know each other well enough to calm each other down when one wants to take a bat to something else :)

Asset162003

Married people know that taking time alone with each other sometimes is more important than any party, get together, or social event:

Asset162004

Married people sometimes have to laugh at how much they didn't know when they got married:

Asset162005

When you're single, married people seem like they know more than you. That's because they do:

Asset162006

They know that you can't rush things, that finding that person you're meant to be with happens in its own time:

Asset162007

And when it does, it just works:

Asset162008

Married people don't just talk about being there for each other during hard times:

Asset162009

They have lived through those times and can say "Thank God we were there for each other"


Asset162010

Married people aren't on their best behavior like when they were dating:

Asset162011

Married people love each other fully, all the good and the bad and everything in between. They laugh at it all:
