We have been married for [many] years. For much of that time my wife has been more or less depressed, and we have just come out of the end of a ten year period of it. This has been the longest unrelenting period of it.
Perseverance pays off, because at the moment we are like newlyweds, though rather experienced newlyweds.
Life has certainly had its joys and sorrows, but we are now both more committed to one another than ever.
Thank God for his kindness in the lives he gives us 'for better, for worse'.
