I read a lot of posts complaining about grooms, talking about second thoughts or lots of fighting leading up to the wedding. I have been guilty myself of blowing off more than my fair share of steam about FMIL, BMs, etc… But marrying my FI is the one aspect of the wedding that is 100% stress free and feel-good. I felt the need to start a positive thread and show that my wedding isn’t all gloom and misery after all LOL!
So I want to know what makes your FI the best groom ever! Brag and gush about your men here.
I’ll start: Mr Seven12 is a saint. He always listens patiently while I rant about things he doesn’t actually care about (like BM issues, 40% off coupons at Michaels or shades of purple). He’s always on my side. His hugs and his smiling face are the only things that hold me together some days. While I know he’s not “perfect,” I couldn’t have found anyone more perfect for me <3

My FI awakened a sprit in me that I thought I loss forever. He is a Gentleman, Patience and Loving. He is a great Male Role model for my daughter and loves her like his own, He is always there to protect me and I feel like he is one of my best friends ever. If I never met him, I would miss him. He is my one true thing and I am over the moon to be the one he chose to be his forever…

@seven12:lol, my husband now enjoys throwing away the Michael’s coupon each week. He begrudgingly went with me to that store so many times – it’s one of the many reasons I love him 🙂
He also listens to me rant, grabs things for me when I’m too lazy to do it myself, and gives me the best hugs 🙂

He is the funny guy (unromantic) that I always knew I would end up with. He keeps me laughing , but at the same time is there when I need him. We are total opposites, but he really does bring the best out of me. Can’t wait for 3 weeks & 5 days so I can marry him!

My FH just gets me. He knows what I’m thinking, even when I try to hide it. He also takes care of me and I love how he is very protective. After being Superwoman for so long, it’s nice to have someone who understands I have needs too. He supports my education, which is a huge thing for me, and he’s not intimated by our financial and educational differences. We actually like being with each other – which is something that many couples don’t understand. We definitely love each other, but we genuinely like each other as well. We rarely have huge arguments, and we have a lot of mutual interests. He’s just a breath of fresh air 🙂

I find little cartoons and other doodles around the house. It makes me really happy because I know they’re for me. Also, we have fun just being together… whether it’s being nerdy and watching our “shows” or going to the grocery store, or making dinner. It’s not “housework” it just a part of life, and it’s awesome.

Yesterday my MOH had to cancel going to the local wedding expo due to childcare issues. Understandable but it left me with a bummer feeling at the idea of going alone. My FI asked me if I would like him to go instead so that I wouldn’t have to be alone. I told him no, that he would be miserable etc etc and left it at that. He asked again about 20 minutes before I had to leave noticing that I was obviously not thrilled with the idea of being on my own for such a social event and finally I caved.
My man is amazing because he knows me better than I know myself and he never hesistates to make me happy, even if it means he has to endure hundreds of bridal woman for several hours.
PS He later agreed it wasn’t THAT bad. 😛

I love that my husband went to wedding shows with me even though it’s definitely NOT his cup of tea. I love that he opens doors, pulls out seats, makes sure I have something to drink, and generally takes care of me! I love that his eyes smile when he looks at me! I love that he has a better memory then me when it comes to anniversaries and special dates. I love that he feels like home to me!

Aww, this thread gives me the warm fuzzies!
I love that my FI has such a good heart, I love how silly he is and how often we laugh together about stupid things. I love his hugs and his awesome foot rubs. I love how much he loves our kitties and I know he’ll be a great dad one day.

I love how my FI gives me a kiss every day before he leaves for work. Even tho I am still in bed and more often than not sleeping. He will tell me he loves me infront of the guys with out being embarassed. He watches Grey’s Anatomy without complaint, and even tho I know he will never say it, I am pretty sure he gets into it. *grins*
He isn’t the romantic kind but little things let me know I am on his mind. Like occasionally he will buy me gummie bears from the store. Or he comes home and tells me he was going to buy me flowers but he forgot. Its the thought that counts right lol.
He laughs with me. Even tho what I am laughing at is totaly retarded and not funny at all, it is to me and he gets it. He also laughs when I mess things up, instead of getting mad. He loves my dog, who used to growl at him every time he hugged me. But they are past that now. He also understands my need to save poor sad homeless animals that no one else would love, for an example look at the kitty I found in the ditch that has no ears and a stump for a tail.
He is my best friend. I couldn’t ask for anyone more understanding and loving. He loves me for who I am.

He actually LIKED the fact that I have a son. He wasn’t just “ok” with it and didn’t run away. He’s an amazing father to him.
He’ll rub my feet even after he’s worked a 12 hour day.
And he’ll always say he has to leave super fast for work but comes back with coffee for me:)
But most importantly, he loves me for my crazy self.

@kimbean: that pic made me giggle
My husband is super thoughtful and romantic. He does little things all of the time. For instance today before he left for work, I work from home and had a skype meeting, I told him I was exhausted and was hoping not to fall asleep when a client could see me. I was sitting in my office and all of a sudden he was at the window in front of my desk pushing open the window. He quietly passed me a pumpkin latte and wrote “I love you sleepy head” on the cup.
He does stuff like this all of the time. I’m super lucky, even if he can only manage to put his close next to the hamper instead of in it <3

I love this post!!!!
My hubby just does so many little things. everytime he gets up he asks if i need anything. he still opens the car door for me. he drops me off at the front door of our work. he makes me laugh so hard. and he listens to me talk about whatever-good or bad. he’s just my best friend in the whole world. he will take me out to mexican food even though he hates it. and he is so thoughful. he will just randomly come home with a little something for me because he remembered me saying i liked it months before. it’s just amazing to feel this loved and to love someone that much!

My FI is so smart. Like ridiculously smart 🙂 He is an IT guy and a math whiz. Every time he comes over to my parents house he ends up fixing a computer or helping my 14-yr old sister with geometry homework. Last week he was really working hard with her on her geometry because she had a test coming up. A few days ago when she told him she got an A, you should have seen the way his face lit up 🙂 Then she said “I guess you guys are taking me to get ice cream now.” and I was like “No, we never said we’d do that.” Lol actually it turns out, HE had promised to take her out for ice cream if she passed. My heart smiles when I think of this.
