I just wanted to make a happy post with all the sad things in the news.
If you’re newly married I hope you know what I mean when I post this.
How awsome is it that the main goal for both of you is for you both to be happy?! Because in a sense it’s you against the world (the bad things in the world). The world can be a terrible place sometimes, and sometimes it’s just everyday stress, but you have your SO there to help you, love you, support you, and make things better just by being there, and all the little things they do. Not to mention the big things.
Something specific prompted this, I won’t lie. Darling Husband went out with his folks and saw a job posting for overnight part time work. He told me about it and said “This is what you said your favorite job ever was. I saw it and thought, I know who would love this.”. I’ve been working office days for several years and it’s literally killing me (won’t bore you with details) and I’ve worked 2nd/3rd shift most of my working life and I loved it. He said “If you want it, or something else, go for it, even if it means a cut in pay or hours, what’s important is I want you happy.”.

Aww. What a nice post!
Darling Husband and I have been married for a year and a half and I feel so blessed to have him in my life.
Yesterday was really warm so I was trying to air out the upstairs bedrooms. I tried to open a window in our nursery which hadn’t been opened since it was painted a month ago and I somehow shattered the glass trying to get it unstuck! I felt like such an idiot and I called Darling Husband at work, completely bawling (pregnancy hormones!) and he just chuckled and said he was relieved there was nothing wrong with me or the baby. I thought he would be mad but he assured me that it was not a big a deal and we’d fix it. He told me to go put my feet up, have a snack and try to calm down. Then he texted me throughout the day to make sure I was ok and feeling more relaxed, and he picked up steak and cheese subs from our favorite place for dinner because I didn’t feel like cooking. He’s the best. 🙂

I’ve been feeling this way especially this week. Monday my twin brother and cousin were in the marathon. Tuesday I found out that one of the people I adore most in the world is going through a separation from her husband after 20 years. Thursday we got 6-7 inches of rain and nearly all of the suburbs around us are totally underwater. It feels so good to come home to my husband and feel at home with him. He reassures me in the simplest way. We haven’t been married a year just yet, but every day I’m thankful that I have him to stand next to me for the rest of our lives.

@MrsTangerine: Your post is spot on. I loved the single life and tbh was skeptical that married life would be better. It is though, in large part because of what you said. When something good happens, I’ve got someone who will be as excited, proud, happy, etc as me. And when something bad happens, we know we have each other and we’ll never have to face sadness alone. It’s very comforting.

Sweet stories for sure. No greater feeling than to be loved! I was tired of being a police dispatcher and my Fiance said the same thing. “Idc if you work at Papa Johns or work at all…as long as you’re happy” 🙂

I know how you feel, I had an opportunity to take a job with MUCH higher pay. I would be working for the same boss (who I hate) but I would be losing the employees that I have (and love) to take it. I LOVE my job, dislike the boss. I would be making 15-20k more a year but I would lose everything I love about working there. WHen I told Darling Husband he told me to stay where I am, he would rather me make less than make more and be even more unhappy than I am now. Sometimes those SO’s really make you realize why you married them inthe first place!
