Ben and I have a love triangle.
Its not complicated.
Its not competitive.
The other One has been in my life since the beginning. He brings me the most joy. Luckily for me, Ben has a relationship with Him too. If he didn’t love Him more than he loved me, I wouldn’t have married him. He’s too important.
Before we got married someone explained it to me so beautifully. Marriage is the ultimate love triangle, between you, your spouse, and God. God sits at the top, with you and your spouse equally spaced at the bottom. The only way to get closer to each other, is to get closer to God. It doesn’t work perfectly, but I think the symbolism is beautiful and the message profound. I know that in my life when I am closest to God, my marriage is the happiest. When I am doing the little things and aligning my will with His, Ben and I are strongest.
Maybe not the love triangle you expected, but its the perfect one.
