Even when he gets things wrong, he means well.

If push came to shove I suppose I could (just) live without him, but the thing is I want him, regardless of whether or not I need him.

Love him SOOOOOOOO much.

I am lucky that I still savor even 5 minutes of time I can get alone with him.

I love my children to the moon and back, but I still feel like a girl with a high school crush when we get our quiet time together at the end of the day!

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

I love the fun we have, the silliness, the tickling, the bad jokes, the songs he'll make up and sing to me or one of the kids.

I love the way he enjoys our kids, nurturing them in only the way a dad can.

I love the way he holds me when tears are just flowing as I deal with life and stupid people.

Often there is a lot of static electricity in our house and when we kiss there is a spark, to which he says "look at that we still got it, feel that spark!". I love that he's fun but also that's not the only way we feel a spark.

Still calls me beautiful, to the point that when my kids say the blessing for a meal they think a normal part of thanking God for the food is thanking God for dad's beautiful wife.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

My husband is hands down the most fun person I know. He can have a good time anywhere and always has PMA. He also looks like a freaking underwear model.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

I feel so lucky dh doesn't get mad about the things other husbands do. I do **** tests and have tantrums, and he is not rocked. And despite my shortcomings, he still tells me he is "fully satisfied" with me, and that he hears my words, but knows my heart.

They say here that there is no such thing as unconditional love from a spouse, but it sure feels like dh loves me unconditionally.

One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

people who feel there is no such thing as unconditional love do not understand that unconditional love has nothing to do with how we feel in the moment.

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 is genuinely a loving and caring wifee
- she is a hard worker, full time, chores and not a princess!!!
- she is generous, surprises and treats
- she is faithful
- she didn't sleep around and party and give herself for free many times
- she gives me space when I need or want it
- she is highly intelligent and educated
- she is finally losing weight, new cloths, and starting to get a sex drive

Strength and Honor. What we do in life echo's in eternity.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

About marriage: I feel like the really rough times in our marriage make it more valuable, because we got through them

About H: He's really sweet and genuinely caring, he gets my random,left field, slightly disturbing humour , and I feel like I can fully be myself AND be loved

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

The best thing about my marriage and my spouse:

- We enjoyed each other's company
- We face daily challenges together
- We don't have lingering resentments.
- We are upfront on what we feel about each other, no mind games
- We still go on dates

We can groove to Cameo in the car together and still manage to find each other sexually desirable afterwards.
