|The Antelope in the Living Room: The Real Story of Two People Sharing One Life|
By: Melanie Shankle
They say that marriage is a lot like insanity, in that they both require commitment. I so get that.
When youre in those first giddy stages of dating, you have no idea what life is going to throw your way. Youre just two bright-eyed kids full of optimism, convinced youre going to be the happiest married couple ever.
Yall. Trust me. Saying, I do is easy. Its the next fifty years or so that can get a little tricky.
There are days you feel like youve never loved each other more. But there are also days filled with disappointment and silence that never seem to end because you just cant seem to find the words to make it right.
Marriage can be the biggest blessing and the most significant challenge two people ever take on. Its the joy of knowing theres someone to share in your sorrows and triumphs, and the challenge of living with someone who thinks its a good idea to hang a giant antelope head on your living room wall.
And yet we are in this thing together. For the rest of our lives. Not just for better or for worse, but for better AND for worse.
Thats what this book is about. The times that brought us together and the times we were falling apart. The days we wouldnt trade for anything in the world, and that time he hung an antelope on my wall.
Welcome to the story of a real marriage.
Melanie (aka Big Mama)
