The reason I married my husband is…
113. …there is no such thing as awkward silence between us. Yesterday my husband and I went out to dinner. On the car ride there we didn’t say a word to one another. About 20 minutes into dinner we actually started talking. We weren’t angry with one another and there was no tension. We were simply enjoying each other’s company without words. I love that we can feel comfortable enough to just be silent around one another and the other doesn’t automatically think that something wrong. Sometimes I feel like we best understand each other when their are no words between us.
114. …I can’t lie to him. Let me first say that I have tried to lie to my husband once since being married, but I failed miserably. I just told him the truth. It was so pitiful. The reasons I wanted to lie to him was because I felt that telling him the truth about the question that he asked me would result in him secretly thinking I was lazy. I couldn’t lie because the guilt get to me and I always feel like he can see right through me. Plus, lying is wrong people! Don’t do it!
115. …he has an awesome family. I have known my husband’s family since we were 12 years old so this might have a lot to do with it, but his family has always been sweet, welcoming and warm towards me. They are also pretty close knit and seem to really value each of the members. I thought it was funny that long before we were ever engaged some of my husband’s family members would introduce me as Jheremy’s wife. LOL! They knew we weren’t married, but maybe they saw something we didn’t. Nevertheless, I am honored to be a part of this family.
116. …he doesn’t procrastinate. Thank goodness…someone in this union has to get something done! LOL! My hubby is very good at doing what he says he will do when he says he will do it. His “just get it over with” attitude has really inspired me to try not to procrastinate as much as I do. Thanks hubby for being a good influence on your wife.
117. …we have a mutual understanding of the biblical purpose marriage. My husband and I often speak at length about the true purpose of marriage, which we know is to be of service to God. That is the long and short of it. We know that everything we do, the way we speak, the way we serve one another is all out of reverence for God. I married him because we both love the Lord and we have a mutual desire for God to use our lives and our marriage for His glory. A life of servitude to our Lord with my hubby is what I call true happiness.
118. …he is okay with the possibility of a life without children. When I was 19 years old I found out that I had a large mass on my left ovary which ended up being the size of a small grapefruit. That was 10 years ago and since I have been in great health, but my family history of fibroids and endometriosis (I’m not claiming this) do put me at risk for additional problems. My husband could have decided that he wanted to be with a woman who will have no problems with conception, but he chose a life with me over the possibility of not having children. I desperately want children and I am claiming in the name of Jesus that I will be able to give my husband children. Still am thankful to have found a man that loves me, biological flaws and all.
119. …he makes a conscious effort not to get me sick. On those very, very rare occasions when my hubby has a 2-day cold or something, he is very careful not to spread his illness. He knows when I get sick I completely crash for like 2 weeks so he’s very thoughtful about tossing dirty tissues, washing his hands often and reminding me that I can’t eat or drink behind him. He really has to remind me about the eating and drinking thing because I am really very bad about that.
