My husband is currently remodeling our bathroom by himself…  while attending grad school and working full-time!  I’m always just so amazed by his self-motivation and commitment to finishing a project.  I might get bored after working on a project for a while, but he always finishes what he starts, even when that means sacrificing his free time to work on the house.  I’m very proud of him!

My husband decided to become vegetarian about two years into our relationship. He did it based on animal rights and the way meat is processed/animals are killed.

While I’m not vegetarian (I eat seafood), I’m really proud of him. The day he decided to make the change, he’s never even been tempted by meat and has stuck by his morals without becoming at all preachy to friends and family. I’m proud of him for altering his life for something he strongly believes in.

a few weeks ago FI and I were at our favorite bar (we are “regulars” there..seriously its funny). It was late in the night, close to closing time, and there was a man sitting at the bar (could have been homeless or “down and out”, not sure ). Apparently he couldn’t pay his $20 blll (one of the bartenders told us) and the manager called the cops on him. Without mentioning anything to me, FI quietly goes over to the manager and pays for his bill and tip.

Not knowing what he did, a few minutes later the manager came over to our table and thanked FI. I finally got what he did and was so proud of him and amazed how selfless he can be.

My FI makes me proud everyday just being the person he is.  He is truly the kindest, most compassionate, caring, intellingent most amazing person I know and that more than any specific accomplishments, makes me proud of him.

My FH has been diagnosed with high cholesterol. It’s really hard for him because he’s quite a fussy eater and has had to cut down on pretty much everything that he used to eat on a regular basis; cheese, ham, red meats. He made a new year resolution to take a packed lunch into work every day and he’s really been sticking to it and is being really good about what he eats now. He’s feeling so much healthier and happier and I’m so proud that he made the decision and is taking it seriously (he’s good at playing down illness and the like).

a couple of years ago we witnessed a accident, a mini van crashed into a bus. long story short, the diver was dead and the passenger of the mini van was crushed into the car, you could see his broken bones as the crash was so bad they were exposed and a pole (it was a work van) had entered the passengers body – he only survived a few minutes but my hubby stood by the guy, held his hand and spoke to him until he died.   later on his parents thanked my husband for not letting their son die alone.  i dont even know if the guy knew my husband was there (he was kinda conscious but reaally out of it)  but it meant alot to his family.

My FI is the hardest worker I know.  He has almost single handedly transformed the dynamic of his office.  The company didn’t have the best of reputations but he’s changed the reputation of it and has gone from entry level to a senior supervisor in only 3 years.  He goes in early, leaves late AND, he’s taken on a part-time job for extra money for the wedding.  He rarely complains too!  It’s crazy and I tell him all the time how proud I am of him.

Omg, eloping: that story is so sad but what a wonderful man you have.  I’d be proud too, not everyone would do that.  Gosh, I wanna cry now

My BF own his own business as a way for him to make a second income through amway. He is trying to get himself out of debt before we get engaged and I am so proud of him for that. he is really being a grown up about this and making sure we are in the best possible scenario when we get engaged/married. I own my own house here in Ga and realistically the best scenario is me to move up there.. so he is doing this so when I come up there I can either rent out my house down here or use the money that I make (when I get a job up there) to pay for my house until the market gets better and I can sell.

My fiance is the most kind, sincere, respectful person I know. The thing about him that makes me most proud is his character. He always goes out of his way to help others. A lot of my friends are single and he has helped them remodel their homes or paint. He has helped my younger sister with her taxes and he writes my grandmother about books he has read. He always is genuinely interested in others and makes sure that the people that are most important to me know that they are important to him too.

I am also proud of his strong Christian faith and values, his relationships with his family and friends and his achievements. He is a very intelligent, successful person but he is very humble about his accomplishments, whereas I am more focused on prestige. I feel like I learn from him daily. He has encouraged me to be healthier, making most of my meals and working out and even competing in a triathalon.

Mr. Tacos is an excellent orator.  Occasionally I have the pleasure of hearing him speak at events about law, and I am proud and impressed.  It is the business side of him I don’t know intimately.  I might even get a little crush on him. 🙂

@eloping:  That story made me tear up!  Wow!

My guy made me proud when he took the Proefssional Engineer exam last year and got a super high score (and a big raise for passing!).  Then he got another merit raise this year in the midst of this crappy economy.  He is awesome!

FI makes me proud because he is the most incredible student i’ve ever met and gets such joy from teaching and helping others work through stuff (he wants to be a professor eventually).  his first semester of college, he had cancer and was almost on his deathbed by the end of the semester (it wasn’t diagnosed till he got home for winter break. he just thought the stress was what was making him feel terrible…that should say something about how heavy our school’s workload is :/ ) and still managed to pull straight A’s…and let me just say that the grading here makes it so that barely ANYONE manages to get straight A’s. Well, he’s now entering his second-to-last semester of college and still has straight A’s.  it’s really incredible.  i don’t know if anyone at our school has ever done this.  watching him work throughout the semester and seeing his dedication and ambition, talking to him about the subjects he’s passionate about, and reading his fantastic (academic AND creative) writing really makes me proud.

He had the courage to recognize that he was very unhappy at his old job and apply to a new company, go on the interviews and start shortly after! It wasn’t easy but has made such a huge improvment in our lives, I am so proud of him!

He also has been going out of his way to make a big effort to think ahead about household errands/chores and get them done without me asking! He’s so thoughtful and proactive, I definitely don’t take it for granted.
