My husband isn’t one who really shares his emotions much which I think that’s true of many guys. There are some days where I feel like he hardly notices me (not true, he just gets tired from work and wants to veg), and we aren’t particularly lovey dovey and don’t have any cute little pet names, and we say I Love You maybe once a day to each other. Needless to say, sometimes it is easy to forget how much he loves me and why he actually chose to be with me out of all the other women on the planet.
So, today we were on the train on our way home just kind of talking about our future. We married young so we know we have a lot of growing to do yet and our lives will go through many changes still. Our roles as spouses aren’t very defined right now and we know they will continue to develop so we were talking about what we’d like them to develop into. Darling Husband was just accepted into grad school so we were talking about how it will affect our future, what kind of job he’d have, etc. I told him my vision of what our ideal life would like, in regards to how I see his role as a husband in our lives, and that would be the down to earth, middle class husband that is first and foremost a family-man (granted, if this never happens for us I will still love him just the same, but is a goal both of us want to reach). I asked him what he envisioned my role as his wife in the future would be and he said “working.” (Im currently working. there was more to the convo including discussing being a stay at home mom but I’m not typing it all word for word) and I asked him “why, would you feel like I was mooching or something?” and he said no, he just feels like I have a lot to offer to the world and that I would be doing humanity a disservice if I was a stay at home mom. Basically he said he thinks I’m a great writer and that I should use that talent because he thinks it would make some impact on the world. I basically swooned a little on the inside. It’s an amazing feeling to know that there is someone out there who thinks that highly of you! I definitely don’t think I could write anything awe inspiring (I’d be lucky to pop out something mediocre lol), but I feel so lucky to have someone that thinks the world of me and believes in my whole heartedly.
Do you have any stories like this to share? Some little thing your SO said that just knocked you off your feet, in a good way?
