Just wait...

At 1 month: "Just wait until you've been together a few months, when it isn't new anymore but you don't have a lot invested in a relationship.  That's when things get tough."

At 6 months: "Just wait until you've been together a year.  That's when the real boredom sets in and you start wondering if he's really where he says he'll be."

At 1 year: "Just wait until you move in together.  Once you can't get away from each other and you see how disgusting another human being can be, it all falls apart."

At cohabitation: "Just wait until you get engaged.  Making it official changes everything."

At engagement: "Now you're in for it.  Planning a wedding ruins people.  Just wait."

After the wedding: "Once you've been married a while, the spark is gone.  Just wait until you realize he's the only person you're ever going to kiss for the rest of your life."

On your second anniversary: "Just wait until you have kids.  It's all over then."

After the birth of your first child: "Sure, it's easy having one, but just wait until you hit the terrible twos."

When you're pregnant with your second: "Now you've done it.  Just wait until you're elbow-deep in diapers and your toddler is dismantling your DVD player and your husband waltzes in and asks what's for supper.  Then you know it's over."

On your tenth anniversary: "Just wait."

Still waiting, after twelve years.  So far, so good.

Sven and Deb, married June 5, 1999
Just waiting to see what will come next.

Just wait until you're a hundred and three and he starts eyeing the 90 year olds!

Just found you via sneaky momma's portfolio. I must say how annoying it is when people say the negitive 'just wait' comments. We're going to celebrate our 14th anniversary June 24th with 3 children and 9 little angels. We met and were married in barely 5 months. My favorite aunt actually gave us 6 months! It's just sad and mean...and says something about their self esteem and journey. Congratulations on your anniversary.

And just wait..'cause that's when things gets EVEN better.
