Word up!
LOL I love that song ... well I did in the 80's!

We joke around with each other.
Sex has gotten better in every way.
Nine out of ten times we have the same opinion about a person we've met.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

I get sex.
About it. I can't think of a single other thing positive about it. And I don't think that is worth it.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

The best thing about the marriage with my STBXW:

1. she is one of the nicest people in the world
2. she is a very devoted mother
3. Lack of drama in the relationship (good and bad)
4. she is pretty frugal, like me, and we have saved up a lot of money
5. she is pretty independent, like me

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

Mr. IMFAR has a lot of good qualities. Too many to name, but here are a few.
He's thoughtful, kind, loving, a wonderful father, good cook, has good hygiene, keeps himself fit, keeps trying, makes me laugh, is a good role model for the children, knows my body and is the perfect lover, he loves me and makes me feel attractive and desirable.

She cheated on you, long done? That is why you are divorcing?

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

My H is a very respectful man. We never get below the belt when we argue.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

I asked my husband to name one positive thing about our marriage.

He replied - that we both believe we have a future together.

I love this.

Great to read your post!

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

Glad to see someone resurrect this thread. Originally done as reaction to all of the other crap seen on the other forums where everything was nonstop doom and gloom. Sometimes you question whether you truly belong at TAM when your primary goal is to try to improve what is already a solid marriage.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

Don't you all just love it when someone posts about how you shouldn't brag about how great your relationship is, and everyone who frequents these forums should be gloom and doom? Then they get banned and despite being a good person, you are a little HAPPY inside?

Officially, we are not married. In heart, I consider us to be.

Positive thing- we give without expecting. Sometimes our spouse can't give- sometimes we can't give. We hope it evens out, but no one is keeping score. Because when you keep score, no one wins.

Long term relationship of 25 years.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

This week was a rough week--a friend of ours from church died suddenly.

What I realized about Dear Hubby is that he is a rock. He is very steady and dependable, and he is clueless about how to "show emotions" even though he feels them. So when I'm sad, if I tell him, "I could use a hug" he is THRILLED and hugs me.

He went with me to the funeral, helped me get ready for the services, drove me to a training thing just to be with me, and we went together to a family event, right after everything with the funeral. So he was just...there.

I can see how being quiet is misinterpreted, but it's not that he doesn't "feel"--he just is steady about it and unlike me, his emotions don't tumble about. Mine do. And we are a good compliment to each other. I teach him how to be expressive, and he teaches me how to maintain inner peace even in tough time.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

Going on vacation and trips together, expanding horizons, raising children together, seeing a new way of looking at things, having someone who cares and is willing to help when you are ill, having someone who knows you better than you know yourself, being with a good person, having company.
