Viktoria and I started talking about relationships earlier today. I just said:
– Your husband is perfect, and she replied:
– You think?
– Well, okay, nobody is perfect, but he brings you lots of joy.
She could definitely agree to that.
As many of you know I got married three years ago. When I met Astrid I just knew she was going to be part of my life. There was going to be no escape. In Astrid I did not quite get what I ordered, I got what I needed. As I write this I laugh. I do not believe that any relationship is in perfect balance all the time. It has its cloudy days and sunny days. Being with her has shown me things I did not realise. It has certainly brought all kinds of feelings to the fore.
Relationships are like a theatre, it can be drama, satire, comedy or action. There have been times when I have thought: What the fuck have I gotten myself into!? But a relationship is fun and alive. If there were no action that relationship would not be meaningful.
I can say this: She keeps me on my toes, but if she did not do that I would be bored. I am slowly beginning to get used to her humour and eccentricity. I will never forget the day when she said: “If you die before me I will kill you.” You never know what is coming next or what she is going to say, but she has a beautiful heart and the most beautiful thing is we care for one another and support one another.
I would like to hear your thoughts on relationships.
