Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Meghan McCain had nothing but praise for her "great love," husband Ben Domenech, on their first wedding anniversary.
The 34-year-old television personality marked the occasion in an Instagram post Tuesday ahead of her anniversary with The Federalist founder.
"1 year married tomorrow baby, I can't believe it's been a year. My ride or die from day one. In the words of the late poet Johnny Cash -- we fell into a burning ring of fire," McCain captioned a slideshow of wedding photos.
"My great love, my best friend, my true partner, my shelter from the storm. I would not have survived this last year without you," she said. "Thank you for always taking on the world beside me - Bonnie and Clyde forever. I love you with my entire heart Ben."
McCain and Domenech married in November 2017, four months after McCain's father, John McCain, was diagnosed with brain cancer. John McCain, an Arizona senator who ran for president in 2008, died at age 81 in August.
"I don't know how you go from talking to someone seven times a day to never," McCain wrote in an emotional post this week. "It is still so indescribably surreal to go through the motions of life without sharing all of it with you."
"The pain of missing you and the grief that comes with it continues to be sharp and primal," she said. "I fight on because that is what you told me I had to do and demanded of me ... I love you forever."

84 days without you. You used to get up early in the morning and go get us all Starbucks in town in the Cottonwood Safeway and then come home and make eggs and bacon. You always had a giant venti cappuccino. We would eat on the porch and talk about life and politics while you read the newspaper and watched out for the hawks to fly by. I want to tell you about everything and get your opinion on everything - just like we used to do. I don’t know how you go from talking to someone seven times a day to never. It is still so indescribably surreal to go through the motions of life without sharing all of it with you - like some awful parallel universe I fell into. The pain of missing you and the grief that comes with it continues to be sharp and primal. Some waves are more intense than others but they come every day relentlessly. Stay with me. Stay with me. Stay with me. I fight on because that is what you told me I had to do and demanded of me. I know you made me so tough and strong with the intensity that only you could have purposefully - and for that I am the most grateful. You raised me “Don’t let the bastards grind you down” you always said. Thank you for always, always being on my team and for being my best friend. I love you forever. To anyone else in my place or those who are not - I wish we wouldn’t put time limits or rules on grief, we all do it differently in different ways. I shared my father on social media while he was here (and he loved it) and I choose to continue sharing him now that he is not. There’s always the unfollow button if recognizing the impact of death and loss makes anyone uncomfortable. ♥️
McCain serves as a co-host on the talk show The View.
