The trip was so much more than you could have ever imagined. One year, twenty five countries, and six continents after that fateful dinner conversation, you were more than ready to go back home. But after being away for such a long time, you really can’t expect your house to still be in spick and span condition, right?
You and your husband decided to celebrate your third wedding anniversary by seeing more of the world – and in the literal sense of the word at that. It was one of the best – and most difficult – decisions you’ve ever made, and you don’t have any regrets that in the end you chose to push through with your plans. And why would you? You spent a glorious week in the paradise-like beaches of Ibiza, Spain for your honeymoon, but after that life gradually began to get in the way of a blissful married life.
Your spouse was busy with work more often than not, and you also had your own day job to attend to. When not in the office you were always occupied trying to run a household in a relatively acceptable manner, like many young wives tend to do, and there was seldom time to sit down with your husband and have quiet, unhurried conversations over the course of a regular week. On the contrary, in fact, you find yourself trading questions along these lines: ‘Did you pick up the chicken for dinner?’ ‘Do you know where my favorite tie is?’ ‘Have you taken out the trash yet?’
One day you looked at your home life, really looked at it, and you didn’t like what you saw. Sure you and your husband live in a nice house with a nice car in a nice neighborhood. You’re slowly building your dreams together, and both of you have good jobs. But it doesn’t feel like you’re sharing yourselves with each other. What about quiet times and lazy afternoons and romantic rendezvous? What about movie dates at home and picnics in the park? Something had to change, you decided.
So a few months before your third anniversary, you had a good talk with your husband over beef casserole and potato salad and broached the topic that had been simmering in your head for a considerable amount of time already: how about going on a trip around the world for our anniversary? After you asked the question, you pretended to busy yourself clearing the dishes off of the table, not really wanting to hear how he would react to what was obviously an irrational idea. But then something strange happened: he grinned and replied ‘why not?’
That was it, that was the exact moment you felt your marriage slowly turning around. The trip was so much more than you could have ever imagined. One year, twenty five countries, and six continents after that fateful dinner conversation, you were more than ready to go back home. But after being away for such a long time, you really can’t expect your house to still be in spick and span condition, right?
