Re: Post something positive about your marriage

Celebrating 20+ years together. My Hubby is my soulmate. He accepts all the craziness that comes with me being a creative type. We understand each other even when we say nothing. He's an awesome Dad to our 3 teenage/1 young adult children. His sense of family is what drew me to him. His sense of humour is the glue that has kept us together all these years. I can be grumpy and mad at him and he tells me how cute I look when I am angry --- how can I stay mad? I end up laughing and then we talk it out. We don't fight much since we do manage to talk things out. We share the same deep sense of religion. We still do things for each other and spoil each other rotten. And he has the best way of giving compliments! I love this man so incredibly much. Looking forward to the next 20+ years together.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

15 years married here. My wife is fiercely loyal to me and our marriage. It has helped to heal my broken heart from my first wife who was equally disloyal. Now that I see the difference I have a very deep appreciation for my wife and marriage. I'll never take it for granted.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

After being married well over a decade I feel like we're actually starting to get to know each other -- and trust each other deeply -- now.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

something positive about my marriage...

well, my wife and i have been through hell and back. we have come from a place where we couldnt stand each other to where we are now...

today, we are on fire. i dont know any other way to put it. we manage to keep the passion going even though the army pulls me away for training and deployments every time i turn around.

my wife is ****ing awesome. i couldnt stand her when we first got married, but i learned to love her. and i mean, i crave her now. i miss her now. im currently away from her on account of the army and i cant stop thinking about her. her texts to me tell me that she feels the same way.

and this from where we were?
holy **** am i lucky.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

My wife took me shopping on Saturday evening. I actually enjoyed it!

Then on Saturday night , she took me out to diner at a really nice restaurant.

She paid for everything.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

We've been together for over a decade now, and we love each other now more than ever. We share so many things. It may sound funny to someone else, but we are each other's fly-fishing partner. No one else can take that role (and with our fanatical dedication to trout fishing, no one else would want to. No one else wants to fish for 12 hours straight without stopping!). We even have made up our own jargon that we use at the river, and no one else can understand what we are saying.

And our sex life has only gotten better. Yesterday, I told him that our "younger selves" would be so jealous of us now, because the sex is amazing! We have become more in tune with each other over the years, and I believe that is the secret.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

My husband was tarring the driveway late afternoon yesterday...filling those cracks...our driveway is 750 ft long...I helped a little in the beginning, then went to read a book crashed out on the porch....

A little later I walked to the top thinking "I need to help him, I'm being lazy".....I carried my book with me...when I got up there, he just went on how he is happy I'm there, didn't need my help but enjoys my presence...It just means something to him...just makes you feel good ya know...

.. I got him a big glass of Ice water & ran back for some gloves .... it's just his attitude...he's always such a thankful man..for the smallest things... .even if I'm just hanging around with my head in a book.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

Every woman I'd ever dated played games. Even the good ones.
I think it's just something they learn growing up and dealing with guys. Not sure, but it's really tiresome.

I finally found one that doesn't play games. In fact she doesn't know how to even if she wanted to.

Re: Post something positive about your marriage

Once you learn how the games are played...it can be a bit of fun

watching them walk into their own messes
