    Big Happy Birthday Heather, that post makes me very proud of my cousin, x

  2. As one of the people who stood up proudly at your wedding and affirmed your choosing of each other, I can say (with tears in my eyes) that I am so proud of you both. This is not easy, this path you’re on (the marriage or the other stuff that is too much for the 85%), but you’re on it together! Happy Birthday. And yes, you deserved every single things that he did for you!

  3. I went into this article laughing at you (because Garreth IS outrageously romantic by mere mortals’ standards) and came out teary-eyed. As a fellow member of “The 15 Club,” I appreciate your hard work together so much. You are both very lucky.

  4. Wait, whaaaaat? Tell me more about this 15 percent thing. Where did you hear that? The journalist in me wants details!

    • Oh Shasta, I think it’s one of those Urban Legends. I heard it at a parenting conference when Aidan was first born. It’s been thrown around (undocumented) in books and also on my very favorite show “Parenthood.” It’s easy to believe but also not statistically accurate. The thing is, it got in my head and did crazy things. We fight like hell for our marriage but the statistics suck for everyone so I’m ok going all out for us.

    You guys are a perfect match and I think it’s awesome that you’re committed and are in that 15%.

    And when you say he’s not romantic…I say bologna. He’s pretty darn romantic. 🙂

    Beautiful post I think a lot of us ladies could do with reading 🙂

  7. Wow. So, so gorgeous.

    This?

    “We’re not together because “divorce isn’t an option” nor are we together because our marriage is easygoing and full of romance. Garreth and I remain in that 15% because we continue to take the necessary risks to fall forward and support each other even when the 85% is pounding at the door.”

    YES!

  8. Love this post! Marriage is a ministry and I pray that you remain in that 15% because you choose to, in the little things everyday! Can’t think of anything more romantic, love this post!

  9. This is such a beautiful post!
