If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or my Facebook page, then you probably saw my post a few weeks ago regarding the couple’s edition Q&A for my boyfriend and I. Well, now it’s finally time for your questions to be answered.
Below are a list of questions that we were asked by friends and family, where no question was to go unanswered.
I’d like to wish a very special happy birthday to the love of my life, my best friend, soulmate, Penguin, fiancée, the father of my future children, my home, my happiness, and so on. Today, you are 32 years old, and I couldn’t be more excited to spend another birthday by your side.
Life isn’t always easy, as you found out at a young age. Through every difficulty thrown your way, you have fought your way through to the other side of it all. I am beyond proud of you, how far you’ve come, and the man that you have grown into.
When Austin and I first met, he went through absolute hell, honestly. In the beginning stages of any relationship, trust has to be built, respect has to be given, and so on. For me, I didn’t trust anyone, not even myself.
After enduring many years of verbal and emotional abuse, on top of the constant cheating, I no longer trusted. I didn’t trust myself due to my ignorance for years, putting up with way more than anyone should ever have to. There was no logical reason that I couldn’t have left sooner, so why didn’t I? If the man that I married and shared a beautiful little boy with couldn’t love me, respect me, want me, encourage me, and do what all husbands should want to do with and for their wives, why in the world would I put myself through something like that again?
