The reason I married my husband is…
92. …we both love movies. It’s nice to be able to share one of your favorite past times with the one you love. Hubby didn’t always like movies, but this is definitely something he has adopted since we began dating. We love nothing better than to spend a Sunday afternoon (after church of course) curled up on the couch with a bunch of Red Box movies.
93. …he allows me to be me. My husband is just like home to me. You know, home, that place where you can put aside your professionalism, put on your sense of humor and be accepted for the person you are at your very core. I have to be so many different people than the person I truly am on the inside in my daily life. I think we all do. My husband is the only person (yes I said only) that allows me to be me without judgement. He accepts that I am often silly, super geeked out and sometimes very opinionated. He allows me to be vulnerable, to express myself when I’m extremely excited and to cry on his shoulder. I don’t have to tone “me” down ever. I can be who I am all the time with my husband. I couldn’t imagine not having the one person who accepts me flaws and all to share my life with.
94. …he is not easily angered. Okay, I know there are things that do anger my husband, but I’m not talking about things. I’m talking about me. I truly am not aware of anything I could (or would) say or do that would cause him to become angry, easily. In fact, I can only think of one time that he was mad at me and that only lasted for like 10 minutes. Now, I’m not walking around trying to take advantage of the fact that he has the ability to regulate his temper, but what I am saying is that he encompasses one major part of 1 Corinthians 13 description of love….it is not easily angered. I wish I knew how he does it, but he does make me want to become a better person everyday.
95. …because the wording of his marriage proposal still makes me smile. While I’m quite sure that this question is not unique in its wording, it definitely makes me feel that I have a sense of responsibility to my husband by being his wife. When hubby proposed he said the following words: “Will you do me the honor of being my wife.” He didn’t just asked me to marry him, but he asked me to honor him for the rest of my life by becoming his wife. Each and every day I do my best to make sure that he feels that I honor him as my husband so that he knows that when he found his wife…he found a good thing and because of that receives favor from the Lord.
96. …he told several people he was going to marry me long before we ever became engaged. While we were teenagers my hubby had told several of his close friends that I was going to be the woman he married. You know what, I’m not sure he knows that I know this (his friends have big mouths), but I always believed this was true. Guess he was serious.
97. …he doesn’t have or want tattoos. I am not opposed to tattoos at all and neither is hubby (on other people), but as I’ve mentioned in some of the other reasons, hubby has his own sense of style. His decision to forego tattoos resonated with me for deeper reasons. This decision told me is that he carefully makes decisions about things he will have to live with for the rest of his life. I can admire a man who puts serious thought into the consequences of his actions.
98. …he deals very well with change. I do not. Something changes, I freak out. Hubby keeps me calm and helps me look on the bright side. He is the calm in the middle of my storm, yup, him and Jesus.
Check out all the other reasons I know that marrying my hubby was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Enjoy!
