  • Wedding: August 2015

We met at a young age, and still are fairly young. But in my few years on Earth I have gone through so much grief and pain and heartache. And my FI stood by me through it all. We come from radically different backgrounds and as young teenagers he could have left me whenever he wanted to. High school relationships hardly ever last. We’ve gone through so much and the amount of compassion, understanding, humility, and love my FI has shown me and my family is the reason I’m marrying him. We’ve been together for three and a half years now and I think they have been the worst and best years of my life. He makes me a better person, for sure.

Because even with all my flaws, all my baggage he still loves me.  And most importantly he loves my son as if he was his own. He’s turned into an amazing father.  He makes me laugh,  he’s the calm to my storm. He’s my very best friend. And he makes me feel like the prettiest girl in the world.

He makes me laugh, makes me feel wanted, and is always there to help me up after I get tripped up. He’s my high school sweetheart, and we have grown so close through high school and college. He’s goofy, he’s adorable, he’s sexy, and he’s sweet. <br /><br />Also, without him, I’d never, ever reach those tall shelves or open any pickle jars. And without me, his laundry would never, ever get done properly, and he’d be eating ramen for every meal. 😉

He never questioned that he was going to instantly become a father.  I never have my car below a half tank of gas.  He handfeeds the rats various treats, despite claiming to not like them.  He’s just a really nice, kind, caring person. I like having someone to be boring with.

  • Wedding: June 2014

My life before him was a mess. I was mostly headed in the right direction but with quite a few hang-ups. A few months before I met him, I walked away from a good job, rented out my home to a theif, and left everything I had and loved to go to another state to take care of my dying father. My dad died and I was stranded, had to get a crappy job so I could have money while the lawyer handled my dad’s estate. I met FI at my absolute worst and he loved me anyway. I loved him because he wasn’t like anyone that I knew.

He followed me to my home state and together we’ve been working towards multiple goals and we’re really happy with where we are. The moment I met him I knew he had a purpose in my life, but I didn’t know what. At the time I thought I had been sent a friend, because that’s what I needed. He turned out to be so much more than a friend.

We’ve been together for 7 years, and through all of them I’ve never had any doubts that he’s the one. I like that I still have a strong sense of indepence, with my own dreams and aspirations while having him to support me, and I him. We’ve always encouraged each other to go after what we want and have seen each other through great success and great loss.

But beyond all of that, he’s kind to me and he loves me dearly. We have built a beautiful life together and he has really made my life so wonderful. To this day my heart still drops when he walks into the room.

Because we laugh together constantly, he’s smart as heck, he’s a hot, redheaded, stocky rugby player with fantastic legs and these crazy blue eyes, he’s affectionate, he’s confident and thinks my sense of independance and strength is attractive (not all men would agree with him – in fact, a lot wouldn’t.)  He’s also great in an emergency, my rock when I need it, he’s not afraid to show his emotion and he’s great at expressing how he’s feeling.  Also, he’s going to be an amazing father.  And he’s so damn excited at the idea.

MrsUPS:  DH and I have been together for 10 years married for 7 months. And in the time we have been together we have learned a lot about eachother and have grown together. At the age we met, it was a sensitive time bc you are still growing as a person and we grew together. 

We are not just lovers but bestfriends. He really puts me first. He is so protective of me, its friggin adorable. (Hes not protective in that crazy, im-gonna-kill-you way Lol!) He has loved me at my best and at my worst. He supports whatever I do. He is so damn honest, sometimes too honest but I appreciate it either way. We have fun together. If we were the last two people on earth, i really wouldnt care. All we need is eachother. When I first started dating him, all I would say is “omg he is so hot” I still say that today to him abd he just laughs. It certainly does not feel like we have been together for 10 years. We keep it fresh and fun. We always have fun. I loveeee that we are so stupidly silly together. I think thats important.

MrsUPS:  There are just so many to list. Mostly I love how we just”fit ttogether”. We are each other’s best friend and shoulder to cry on. I think we bring out the good in each other too, as in he can calm me down when I am emotional and I can make him feel strong when things are troubling him. There is just something so stable and comforting about being with him and I love that he thinks what I have to say is important.

Wow, like MrsBlackCat, there are way too many to list.  He adores my dogs & takes wonderful care of them & me.  He is a true gentleman at all times.  Our views on politics & world events match–very important to me.  He’s very smart.  He’s a natural problem solver.

He is extremely supportive of my career, which is currently going through a necessary transition, but causing major growing pains.

He’s my best friend.  He’s always reliable.  He does the grocery shopping & takes inventory for me to see if I’m running out of something.

I could go on & on.  He’s just a great, grown up, reponsible, gentleman of a guy.

MrsUPS:  i needed to marry someone smarter than me. not to be confused with intelligence. my husband is clever. i tend to be a very straightforward and logical person but my husband is not only logical and intelligent but smart in his decision making. he has made our life so much better with his clever ways of solving problems and finding solutions for all kinds of things (financially, home repairs, buying big ticket items, etc).

he is also a wonderful helper. i am not always on top of my game and i always thought i would be the one in any relationship to have it all together but life, stress, and pregnancy have all proved me wrong. lol so it is nice to have someone there to remind me to do things or to keep me on top of stuff. he isn’t just sitting there like a bump on a log. you know? he is active in our marriage and i love him so much for it.
