I love the fact that my wife and I can talk about anything. Whenever an issue comes up that bothers us - whether it's something one of us did, work related, friend related, etc - we're talking about it. I think we squash a lot of bigger problems when we talk things out early on. Also, I like knowing that my wife wants to talk to me and seek comfort/advice about other problems affecting her.
She knew an internet site where we downloaded Game of Thrones episodes and we enjoyed watching them together.

I think my wife is beautiful, and after 10 years of marriage, she is even more desirable than the day i met her.

we are also very good parents together.

She has to work late tonight, so the kids and I can enjoy some fun, non-stressful time together.

Simply put: She understands my needs, and I understand her needs.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

If you had asked me to post something positive 2 years ago, I am not sure if I could have. My husband and I had just become kinda miserable a lot of the time and were making each other miserable. But I think we have completely turned that around.

So.. I think the most positive thing I can say is I am thankful for my husband's willingness for us to re-evaluate and work on our marriage together when about 18 months ago I said I was tired of not ever seeing him smile when I walked into the room.

After being married for 24 years and both of us falling into the habit of putting our kids before ourselves for so long, he was all in on finding ways of turning that thinking around. We were talking last night and mutually agreed that the past year is the happiest we had in all our years together (despite having some rough, stressful other stuff going on).

There's still more for us to work on, but I really feel loved by my husband and I feel really loving towards him, a big change from 18 months ago.

Post something positive about your marriage

I love that my wife is my best and most trusted friend. She is a great lover and mother. We tease each other constantly in a playful manner and we can always finish a sentence off for each other. We think so much alike it is sometimes scary. When one of us gets sick, neither of us complain about picking up the slack around the house while looking after the one that is sick. It's almost like our bodies know that when so an so is sick, your turn comes when that person is feeling better.
Mind you we have issues now and then but always work them out. We both enjoy camping and fishing a lot so we try getting out without the kids ( she even initiated in the boat, had to find a small cove out of sight). We also do things separate from each other. I like to take my youngest daughter out with the four wheelers and play around in the mud. My wife enjoys baking with our oldest daughter
We've been married for just over 13 years and have been together for almost 30 years. I love her just a little more than I did yesterday and almost as much as I will tomorrow

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

Aside from the fact neither of us have children from previous relationships THIS is what I love about my husband. And he is incredibly thoughtful, has a brilliant mind, is not a thug yet is not at all beta. Our marriage is wonderful because we compliment each other, both of us always ensure the other feels safe and we never put ourselves in a situation that could potentially lead to infidelity.

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.
For those that think the idea of marriage is all about hugs, kisses and being tied down forever after it is way more than that, and marriage can actually be most important when you find yourself in one of life's ugliest moments.-BadSanta

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

I love that we can laugh together. And sometimes, during a fight he just starts smiling and I smile back and we forget everything and realise that what we were fighting about simply wasnt worth it.

I think Beta has gotten a bad rap due to Pick up artist articles, articles on the net slaughter the term as all p**y whipped doormats.. it's not the truth...

Many things on your list are GOOD BETA traits...

I suppose others may not have these interpretations. (I need to do a thread on this) but this is how I see them.. or have read from sources that make an awful lot of sense ...to me anyway..

Quote:
The Alpha Traits are those associated with classic “manly man” strengths. Power, dominance, physical ability, bravery, wealth, cool and confidence. Oh and good genes. These are the things that attract women and turn them on sexually. The Alpha Traits are linked to the dopamine response in women.

Alpha = attraction building = Dopamine = In Love = Excitement
Quote:
The Beta Traits are those associated with the strengths of being a nice guy / “family man”. Kindness, being a good listener, the ability to help with the children, dependability, thoughtfulness, compassion and patience. These all create a sense of comfort and safety for the woman, and relax her because she feels that if she became pregnant, the Beta Trait male isn’t going to abandon her and the baby.

Beta = comfort building = Oxytocin / Vasopressin = Pair Bond = Calm Enjoyment"
So Alpha Traits create attraction and that “in love” feeling, and Beta Traits create the pair bond and makes her feel relaxed enough to have sex. You need a balance of both Alpha and Beta in a marriage to maximize her desire to have sex with you.

So your Husband sounds a GOOD mixture of both Kylie84...but that's what we want !

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

I thought of something else that I love about my marriage. We don't hold grudges, give the silent treatment, or play the passive-aggressive losing game.

We talk, work as a team to solve problems, and we never lie to each other, even if the truth is hard to hear.

I also love that he is a chef by trade and I HATE to cook. I love to clean and he HATES to clean. So I get delicious meals and he gets a clean home. Honestly, sometimes I think we just got lucky since we met when we were teens and had to learn as we went.

Long term relationship of 25 years.

Three children 23, 21 and 15.
