Lisa, put on your work boots. Marriage, people like to say, is hard work.
I’ve heard it from a lot of people: at some point in your marriage, you aren’t going to feel the same you did when you fell in love. You’re both going to change, and not always for the better. The reasons you decided to get married may suddenly stop existing. You’ll wake up one day and realize that you have to stop thinking and daydreaming that life is going to turn out the way you planned. Which is to say, you’re far enough along that life is already turning out. Shudder.
