With all the wedding planning, all the TTC, the stress of waiting and all often times praising our SOs on this site doesn’t happen because we get so wrapped up in everything else going on. Of course there’s always a comment here and there about how wonderful someones SO is, but not anything dedicated to the SOs that make the waiting, engagement, wedding and TTC possible, and heck, I just love bragging about my husband!
So, tell me… What do you love about your husband, what do you love the most, what is something that just makes you “melt” that he does, why is he so special to you and what made you know he was the *one*?
I’ll start… My husband is so hilarious, he makes me laugh with his little dances and random quirky comments and he’s one of the few people who really get my “dry” sense of humor and dare I say he’s picked up a dry humor from me a bit as well 🙂 He’s so incredibly caring and kind and what I love the most about him is his ability to handle stress without getting stressed, something I’ve really needed help with and admire so much about him. When we lay in bed, after certain acts he just continues for a good 5 minutes or so hugging and kissing me, just because everything is done doesn’t mean he’s ever done with me which I just love. When I’m tired or just not feeling up to anything really but I get hungry, even if it’s 2am he will get up and cook me something to eat, even if he’s not eating anything himself. He’s helped me change so much and become the person I hoped I would be long before even meeting him. He’s been my rock through the hard times and despite my many flaws, he’s loved me through each and every one. I knew he was the one, not from just one day or one experience but throughout every day of our first year of dating he kept nudging his way in and before I knew it I was completely and utterly smitten and just knew I would never be happy with anyone else because no one else could compare.
So what about all of you lovely ladies? Feel free to gush, we’ve found our other 1/2 and should be proud to shout it out! Spill away!

@MrsNewBride427: My FI has just been incredible throughout the process of planning our wedding. He takes on so much more than what is expected of him and coaxes me gently and lovingly out of my planning-related breakdowns. He is so incredibly patient and he inspires me to be a better person everyday.
Outside of all the wedding planning stuff, he has an amazing sense of humor and does the sweetest, most thoughtful things (like randomly buying me this beautiful journal when I said I wanted to write more). I am so looking forward to marrying him. I can’t say enough amazing things about him.
Thanks for this thread, by the way. It made me realise just how good I had it!

He’s tall, dark and handsome. He is my spider killer and tall-shelf reacher. He’s great with computers. He’s got an amazing sense of humor. After 10 years, he still manages to make me laugh, smile and feel loved. He is totally a giver. When I am sick, he’s there to take care of me, when I am tired, he’ll rub my back until I pass out. He is the right balance of “manly man” and “sensitive man”.
You know how someone asks your favorite book and suddenly your mind draws a blank even though there are a thousand answers you were just waiting to give? I’m doing that right now. My list could go on for hours but now that I am being prompted, I can only do a paragraph.

When I’m not feeling great, which has been most of the time in the last while, he often makes me tea and breakfast either before he wakes me up or right after I drag myself out of bed. It really helps me out to just be able to sit for a bit and not have to get up and down once the water boils, the toast pops up, etc.

@MrsNewBride427: Good idea for a thread! Just last week I was stressed about how MrDane needs to help me more with our newborn. I’m putting in a lot more hours with pumping & bottling alone, but he really has stepped up with helping! He gets up with her in the wee hours of the morning to feed & change her for me so I can get an extra hour or so of sleep.
Those first two weeks at home were so hard. I was exclusively nursing so he couldn’t help me do any feedings. He would always make it a point to tell me I’m doing a good job though, and that really helped get me through a lot of sleepless nights 🙂
*swoon* We are some lucky ladies!

I can’t believe I am going to marry this guy. I feel like the cat that got the cream some times.
He is gorgeous, care-free, he’s never miserable, never leaves a bad feeling hanging – always says something like ‘tell me what’s wrong, let’s talk about it, I can tell you’re not happy’.
But it’s not like we ever fight – we’ve had maybe 5 fights in the 4 years we’ve been together.
It’s a given he will look after me if I cam sick.
He never demands anything from me.
He is really social and he’ll always help preparing the house for entertaining etc. I feel like we’re a true team.
He’s never possessive or jealous and I never feel jealous of other girls around him.
I am never treading on egg shells with him. He would always embrace me if I came to him.
He’s a totally pure person, it’s like he hasn’t been damaged by life at all.
Like I said, most of the time I feel like the cat that got the cream and I cannot wait to marry him.

My fiance is great. I’m having a tough time finding a job in my field, so he’s really helping me out by making connections at his job. As luck would have it, one of the guys he works with used to work in my field around here and has lots of connections, so they’re becoming friends and he’s getting info for me. This, of course, helps him, too, since if I get a better job, he can quit his crappy part time one and focus on school. Also, that guy’s wife works in the field that FI is going into. (Plus, we need more married friends.)
