What's the hardest thing about being married?

David asked me that after he found out how long I've been married (nearly 23½ years).

I smiled and told him about the time when I asked someone that, and got the reply "It's her!" (Hint: That is not the correct answer. And no, that man wasn't serious.)

The truth is: what makes it hard is that I'm not as selfless or humble or generous or loving as I like to think I am. If I weren't so selfish or proud, married life would be a lot easier. It's good to reflect on that fact once in a while.
