We went in that evening and I remember feeling so nervous. I am not even sure why I was nervous that is just the feeling I had. Maybe because I knew that I was going into this interview with the man I was going to marry, and didn’t want to mess anything up, maybe because I didn’t know if I would have all the answers for the interview. Either way, William was there to tell me everything was going to be fine. William went in first for his one on one, and then it was my turn. The individual interviews went great, and we “passed” the test!
We both went in for the couple’s interview. I don’t know what was said or what was asked, the only advice I remember getting was to Always Hold Hands. Our Stake President told us that as long as we are holding hands we could never be apart. That if we always hold hands we could always have that “honeymoon” stage forever. As I looked at William with tears welling up in his eyes, my eyes imitated his. He reached out his hand and I took it. I could feel the love of the Savior so close to my heart at that moment and I knew that this was the right choice for my life, for our life.
This was the single best bit of advice anyone could have given to a nervous couple about to get married. From then on, we have always strive to hold hands anywhere we go, or even if were at home sitting on separate couches you can bet that one of us will hold out our hand just so the other one can grab hold for a few seconds (while on commercial breaks, no need to interrupt Glee for a hand hold)
There are those times where I am so mad at William for whatever
So ladies, take in this advice. Always hold hands with your husbands. Don’t let go, for as long as you are holding hands you can never be apart. I know we are in all different stages of our marriage or courtship, some may be madly in love, some newlywed, and some married for years and years, and some holding on by a thread. Whatever stage you are in, try to remember the love that you share and the love that you once shared with the man (or significant other) that you call you call your lover. If you retrace your steps and write down all that you love(d) about your significant other, you too can find that thing that linked your hearts together in the beginning.
Here’s to either building a stronger love for each other, or to rekindling the fire of the love you once shared.
