Marriage: Like A Dance

Do you know that I have often likened marriage to that of a dance? And, after thirty-three years of marriage, I am still likening marriage to a dance. Hubs leads; I follow. He strides; I stride with him. He dips; I let him dip me. It has not always been an easy dance. It seems …
