My wife and I have been married for 10 years. No, that's not very long, but it's still an important milestone.
After a decade you should know whether you are well matched or hopelessly incompatible.
I believe my wife and I get along extremely well, though, in fairness you're only getting my side of the story. She is a very private person, so good luck getting her to dish on us or me.
Good sense should dictate that I make no public declaration about the success of our marriage so far. It's a jinx. I may as well get a tattoo with her name inside of a heart.
But I'm feeling optimistic.
I've actually been married for 19 years, counting my first marriage. I didn't make it to the 10-year mark the first time.
Divorce, as half of America can attest to, is devastating. It's like taking everything you think you know about love and family and relationships, shaking it up, tossing it in a pile and setting it on fire.
Divorce causes you to question your ability to sustain a relationship as well as the viability of the lifetime commitment of marriage.
But eventually you get through it.
Today, my ex is happily remarried to a great guy. In fact - and this will creep out some of you - my wife and I have even stayed at their house while visiting my son.
You may not be married for life, but you're divorced for life, so you better figure out a way to get along.
I'm pretty sure I'm a better husband the second time around. Maybe the nine years of my first marriage were an expensive training ground. Maybe I'm just older and more mature.
