Six Years

H
e sat across from me and shook his head in a way that said, you have no idea. I saw him, but continued to push forward, like I was presenting a case to a jury. Except we sat in a kitchen and the sun was setting. I explained life is too short to be unhappy and why must people feel like they're fighting to make things work, instead of them merely working? Like they're intended to.

JD, I said, I'm a quitter. When I'm unhappy, I quit...I was raised to believe this is okay. Life is too short to be unhappy.

He shook his head again, but this time he said, no. No, it's not okay. Then the conversation took a drastic turn. Where I was referencing quitting a job or a book, his soul stirred deeper. You can't quit at everything, he said. If what you said was true, it means you'd be willing to quit on us if you became unhappy. For him, quitting isn't an option.

I laughed. Uncomfortably. What are you talking about, I asked.

JD looked me straight in the eyes and said, Jasmine, I've made one promise to God in my entire life. Just one. And that was to be with you until the day I died. In happiness and turmoil...in sickness and health. If I break that promise, I will have let God down. I'm going to be with you forever, even if there are times when it hurts."

I sat on the kitchen stool in silence. And in that moment, I realized I married an incredible man.

Six years ago today, I stood on a beach in Hawaii and promised to love, honor, and cherish my husband. What I realize more today than ever was that JD swore to God to never leave my side and I am assured (more than ever) and know (in the depths of my soul) nothing will him stop from keeping it.


Happy Anniversary, JD!

Sherra Gray - Happy Anniversary Jasmine and JD. After 16 years, I know that marriage is the hardest work you'll never get paid for (until you have kids). And I know the blessing of true commitment. The freedom of knowing that you and he will always be together - no matter what. Congratulations on finding someone who understands that his commitment is not based on feelings, but on a promise, made to both you and God... and that he knows it's sometimes going to be tough... and he's still going to love you. God's blessings on your marriage!  09.29.11 - 12:26pm

Whenever I hear about divorce statistics or uncertainty in marriage, people insisting you can't know for sure that your relationship will last a lifetime, I just want to tell them I'm so sorry they don't have that faith and that commitment they share not only with their husband or wife, but with God. Thanks for reminding me I'm not alone in believing so fervently that my husband and I will keep the vows we exchanged. Happy anniversary!  09.28.11 - 9:11am
