SO and I have had the marriage talk and it was just a couple months ago, recently he’s been doing all these improvements to his house (his house isn’t old and it is kinda a bach pad) he’s put plants and landscaping in that i really wanted to do, he’s taken down all of his beer stuff, except in the garage, he’s never cared if i decorated things but now he wants to be all involved with it. I just find it strange because he is not the type of person who gives a crap what sheets are on his bed or what rug is on the floor. I’m def not complaining, this weekend he came home with two paintings he knew i had my eye on……his mother (who btw i absolutly love) said he’s preparing……..PREPARING FOR WHAT FMIL?????? lol he did make the comment that he wanted to do things now before he tied his money up in something else or too busy. Hmmmmmm do guys do this? Do they prepare like this? Anyone else’s SO do stuff like this?

I think some men decide they need to be more ‘grown up’ in their choices and style when they start thinking marriage and family or their own.

I remember my SO’s “mancave” and it really was a cave. No light. no real FLOORS! Mini-fridge and a Hot plate. It was horrible…But we played house in that place for 2 years before we got OUR appartment and forced good memories into that space. My SO didn’t have much growing up so now he looks at the things we have, the things HE has now, and is very greatful. We are about to buy 3 new peices of furniture for the living room and it was tons of fun picking them out. The same for our bedroom.
I don’t know if it is growing up, or nesting or whatever, but it makes him happy, makes me happy.

A few months after I started dating my now husband, he went out and got fancy sheets, a new pillow for me, a throw blanket for the couch, an A/C unit for the bedroom (we were in Boston where there isn’t A/C even though it gets hot), and my stocked my favorite foods in the kitchen. All without me asking! it was adorable! I don’t think all guys do it, but some definitely do!
