“Did your husband think twice about the fact that you were hard of hearing when you met? Does it cause any difficulties in your marriage?”
This question….kind of perplexed me.
It’s really a normal marriage. He got down on one knee, I said yes. We ended up doing that ‘getting married’ thing. We said our vows and agreed to agree how red meat should be cooked.
I think when the question was asked, I had no idea people think it could cause difficulties. Now, I can see people wondering that. If people knew us, then maybe that wouldn’t be a question.
I supposed people often question Justin. I’m sure once they meet me it’s like “oh…she’s normal.” “With a funny accent.” No, I’m just kidding.
People might automatically think we communicate via sign language. (He knows zero)
This was the first time I asked Justin if he thought twice about the fact I’m hard of hearing. This was his response.
“Nope. I think because we got along right from the jump.”
Be more like him.
It’s a problem if you make it a problem. Remember, love is universal.
Let’s get to the difficulties of how it is in our marriage!…..NONE. No difficulties whatsoever. I mean, we sure have communication issues. JUST LIKE ANY OTHER MARRIED COUPLE.
We wouldn’t be married if we didn’t mesh well. He knew what he was getting himself into and we simply had to work itself out. He happily makes the necessary phone calls that I need. I make fun of his New England accent because he will say a whole sentence in one word. Can we cue the eye roll here?
No, our marriage is not perfect. It’s normal. Like a unicorn is normal.
