“Ladies, imagine your future sons turning out like your boyfriend. If that makes you cringe, you should probably break up.”
Right?!?! And then I teared up because I could only be so lucky if my sons were as amazing as my SO. I know he’ll be such a great dad and example to our children.
My ex on the other hand …my oh my. Makes me sick to think that a future/children with him ever even somewhat crossed my mind. Dodged a bullet there.
Anyway ..pass that quote on to all of your friends who are currently with assholes.

I completely agree. If our sons turn out like my fiance, I would be the happiest woman on Earth. He is so thoughtful, respectful, intelligent, conscientious and loving. I should be so lucky to have more than one man like that in my life (besides my own daddy, of course).

i’ve also heard a different version of the same quote. it goes “Never marry a man unless you’d be proud to have a son exactly like him.” i love that quote and i’ve passed it along to friends when they needed advice on questionable relationships.

I would love my sons to turn out like FI. He’s got manners, call everyone by Ma’am and Sir. Hold doors open for people. Ect, ect.
HE EVEN WEARS HIS PANTS ABOVE HIS BUTT.

I love this. I can only hope that if we have a son he’ll turn out like FI!
FI’s mother didn’t think about that… unfortunately for her, she not only has a son (FBIL) who is just like her husband but a daughter who is worse! Somehow, FI turned out strangely well-adjusted and more like his mother.

I love this – I tell DH all the time that part of the reason I want sons is so we can raise them to be like him (in terms of manners, values, morals, etc.).

@pokie45: Wow, this is a great way to think of it.
I’m very happy when I think of that thought with my fiance. He was raised so well – is so respectful, honest, wonderful at communicating. He even liked the “nerdy girl” in high school. (And he ended up w/one years later!) I can only hope we have sons so respectful of women and their family.
But as you said, thinking of my ex, dear goodness, they’d be selfish and would never want to grow up. I cannot imagine!
