Chad and I have watched every season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette since we’ve been married.
This statement is only half embarrassing, mainly because the show, in some ways, makes a mockery out of marriage and is ridiculous in the drama/tv reality department. But the other half is kind of sweet. Sweet might be a stretch. But I’m going to run with it.
I used to HATE on this show. I was convinced it was out to destroy the sanctity of marriage and squish all things beautiful about this LIFE LONG commitment these people are taking when they propose. I only had watched one episode in college, and definitely made my opinions known to my roommates. And then I got married. And I think the mix between being a wedding photographer, and being a wife made me a little more interested in how people meet, date, interact, and deal with this sort of situation. What I found was that this show creates some of the best marriage discussions!
Here are some things I’ve thought about and/or discussed with Chad that has really been good!
