Married For 5 Years! That’s 1,826 days of Being a Wife!

Today marks my five-year wedding anniversary with Kachi! I remember being on my honeymoon, thinking that milestones like 5, 10, and 15 years were so far away. Yet, here we are celebrating five wonderful years together. My heart is full of thanksgiving.

5 Years In Marriage 

I have really come a long way - from crying over heartbreaks upon heartbreaks to being able to get through a difficult season and now, being married to Kachi. Can you believe it’s already 5 years? Wow!

To be honest, I do not know where this article is headed. My heart is so full. I’ve been in a reflective state for the past week, and I am in awe of how my life has become so much better every passing day. God has faithfully kept His word; He has never failed me yet. 

Have you ever looked back on your life and just cry happy tears? That’s me right now. It’s feels like I’m looking back at my younger self, giving her a wink, and telling her I’m happy she’s having fun.

Five years may not seem that long, but our marriage has already evolved multiple times. Kachi and I are already different people than we were back in 2018 (and especially different from the people we were when we met in 2007!)

At his core, Kachi is still the same person. Of course, he is. But it’s safe to say that certain life experiences have changed his life reality. My values are the same, too, but I also know that the past few years of growing and raising two babies has profoundly changed me. But amidst those changes (maybe because of them?) marriage seems to keep getting better and better.

Being married to Kachi is an absolute gift. He is so kind. He prioritizes time with people he cares about. He and I rarely argue about things, but whenever we do, he fights fair. He listens and cares and tries to see things from my perspective, and he’s always (always!) the first one to apologize…even when I was the one who was being difficult.

Kachi is such a good Kach. Yeah, I hope you catch that. It’s a blessing to be married to someone who is so easy to be married to. I don’t say this just because it’s what the internet wants to read. . . I truly mean it! 

After a rocky few months of life during our fourth year of marriage (pregnancy, parents’ illness, death of a loved one, car breakdown, career change…it wasn’t my favourite year of marriage), this fifth year felt fun and light. Of course, two babies in the house isn’t easy, necessarily… But there’s a certain playfulness in every day. The girls make us laugh a lot. Two nights ago, Kamma and Kamso dismantled the bag of market food left on the table, then strolled into our room, one with a bag of crayfish and the other with a stack of stockfish. We couldn't help but burst into laughter.
Today, at year five, I feel deeply thankful for my husband. I love him so, so much. He is a sweet soul. He does me good. Our marriage is beautiful. What we have feels like a dream.
