4 More Years Ben Levy 15, December

Today is the fourth anniversary of my wedding to The Wife (and marks nearly 11 years together). In honor of that, I thought I’d share a story. Some of you may have heard this story before. I have told it at least a dozen times to people in committed relationship who are scared by the emotions they feel towards their partners.

The Wife and I actually met on a blind date our senior year of high school. We dated long-distance (don’t recommend it) all through college. After graduation- despite never really spending more than two weeks at a time together for the last four years- we moved into a one bedroom apartment.

I think we’d been there a month when the following conversation occurred:

“Honey, I love you. I really do. I love you so much I can’t even describe it. Which is a good thing. Because sometimes, if I didn’t love you so much, I’d have thrown you off our [thirty-second floor] balcony.”

“Oh Baby, that’s wonderful,” she replied, eyes shining with relief, “I feel the exact same way about you.”

And I knew we were gonna be just fine.
