Keeping The Flame Alive

My husband and I have already been married for nine years. We passed the 7th Year itch without even noticing it. I don't even think that there's a truth to the notion that the 7th year is the hardest. I am not saying that my married life is blissful everyday but I treat each day as a learning experience.

It's already public knowledge that I met my husband through the internet because I have blogged about this a couple of times already. I still thank God everyday that he blessed me with a best friend.

So you want to know how, after nine years and an 8-year old boy, we keep the flame in our marriage alive? It's friendship. We talk about everything and anything under the sun. Along with the talks are the silly jokes we laugh about together. Sometimes, even our son doesn't know when we are serious or not. And probably because we met each other in the net, we send our "confidential bordering on the naughty side" over chat and email. Lately, we bond through Facebook!

How do you keep the flame in your marriage alive? Share it and win a Pond's Age Miracle Microdermabrasion Kit (worth at least P1,200) by blogging about it in 250 words or less or posting a comment at Animetric's World. Contest runs from April 1-14, 2009.

Special thanks Jen Tan for the heads up! The same contest was posted earlier by Imom but I wasn't able to join because of my busy schedule. Glad I had another chance to do so!
