I am twenty-one, have been married for a little over three months and “The Great Juggling Act” has been the topic of many conversations. My church has seen four couples get married in the last eight months and it seems a major acclimatisation for many newly weds to their new life, living with their husbands in harmony, compromising and balancing everyday life and the new responsibilities that come with it. My life is very busy, working takes up four days, studying for a Counselling degree takes up one whole day and another night, being committed to a youth ministry which includes organising and running a fortnightly small group, and occasionally organising and running a Friday night youth program and talk.
