Hi, I’m Bree

I’m a 40-year-old die-hard lover.

I learned early in life that you don’t make your current partner pay for your ex’s sins.

And I’ve gone into relationships with that mindset.

Yes, I got my heart broken so many times. But that didn’t stop me from putting myself out there to find love.

I’m married to a man five years younger than me. We’ve been together for ten years, married for 8.

Our marriage isn’t perfect, and it is not the norm. Because “it is not the way it is supposed to be.”

But we are happy we’re in it together.

How this all began!

My husband and I did not start our marriage by the books. And that’s okay.

To some people, we put the cart before the horse.

Let me give you a somewhat clear picture of how we started.

We were good friends for years. Everybody was okay with that.

Then after college, we started dating; everyone started poking their noses in our business.

Then I got pregnant. Hmm, taboo!

“It is not the way you’re supposed to do it.

“First, your husband has to be older than you.”

“You must get married before getting pregnant.”

“This marriage might not work, etc., etc.”

We heard all these and more.

Our thoughts?

We are proud of our decisions from the beginning to this day.

Marrying John is one of the best decisions I have ever made. And I can confidently say, “I married my best friend.”

We were friends who became lovers—now married with two kids.

I hope you enjoy reading my blogs and find yourself some helpful tips.

This space was created for young people dating toward marriage.

I am not an expert on relationships or dating advice.

And most of the relationship advice on this blog is based on my experience of being married for eight years.

Every relationship is different.

So what works for you may not work for me.

But again, some relationship advice works for the majority.

And a good and happy relationship takes two people willing to be together.

And through the arguments and making up, you can build strong, loving relationships.
