Dating my spouse
It would be like trying to convince a child to eat liver because it’s nutritious, after he or she has had to eat liver every day for several years.
Just the thought of that is repulsive and no amount of sweet talk or reasoning is going to overcome that gut reaction.
We have no control over who we become attracted to.
As days turned into months, we officially started dating and never looked back.
Six years later, we bought a house and got married.
We had already been through some tough stuff by that point, including illness and long distance.
We were such a strong unit and our friendship, that was at the core of our relationship, was still just as strong.
