Jacob was born and raised in Atlanta, and I had lived there since high school. Everything looked like we were going to live a traditional life with the 2.5 kids working 9-5 jobs. We had so many low points in our relationship too, some of which felt like our marriage was completely falling apart. We both carried our fair share of emotional baggage into the relationship, but I’ll admit I liked to hoard mine. Though it may not be rainbows and unicorns all the time, I can’t imagine life without my best friend.
