He’s wonderful, he knows what I’m going to say even before I do, he’s funny, he’s loving, he’s attentive, he’s helpful, he’s everything I ever imagined wanting in a man and so much more.  He’s the one I can see myself growing old with, sitting on the front porch in a rocking chair still holding hands.

The way he treats me, others, his parents. He makes me laugh like no one else. And all I know is I want to be with him.

He is always looking at the bright side of things and has the same values on marriage. We are complete opposites besides that- but I think that it really is awesome how we can share such a strong bond- when we grew up so different.

I am allowed to be myself when I’m with him and not have to worry about how I’m “supposed” to act.  He GETS me – flaws and all.  And he deals with them with such grace and tenderness.  I can’t imagine my life without him.

ETA:  And at the risk of sounding cliche, he makes me a better person than I am on my own.

When I think about the future, I can’t imagine it without him. 

I am my truest self with him; I have never had another romantic partner where I was totally and completely myself and so open.

He not only treats me perfectly, but he makes a huge effort with my family and friends.

We share so many common interests and values, including religion and many hobbies.

I can’t imagine my life NOT married to him, that’s how I know. ๐Ÿ™‚


Divorce rates are affected by all kinds of factors (age, previous marriages, demographic, sometimes even education).  We can’t let these combined things scare us from getting married.

I love him. And he loves me. 

I can be myself with him without judgement. I can say what I feel and think and he says what he feels and thinks. We run on the same wave length and when we dont… we try to persuade the other person to see it from our point of view. And if it doesnt work, we look into each other’s eyes, kiss and hug and say ok sounds good lol.

He makes me laugh. He makes me smile. He makes me cry out of happiness. He is a great man and has made me a better person. And from what I see, I do the same for him.

I love him… and there is no other person in the world I’d rather be with.

When I think about my furture he is there.
I cant think of anyone I would rather explore life with, i want to grow old with him as corny as that sounds.
I can totally be myself with him, he tells me he thinks Im beautiful when Ive just woken up and when Im dressed up for a night out and I beleive him.
He doesn’t expect anything from me and yet gives everything to me.

He is honestly the first thing person I think of when i wake up and the last person I think of when i go to sleep.
He is my best friend and I tell him everything, i trust him completely.
I am a better person for knowing him, he loves me flaws and all.
I know that he will be a fantastic husband and hopefully one day and brilliant Dad.

We have fun, we laugh, we can serious or silly…he’s my best friend

 He treats me well and we want to make each other happy. I know he will be an amazing father. He’s sweet and sensitive but still masculine. I feel safe when I’m with him.

plus he can cook ๐Ÿ˜‰ haha

He’s honest, reliable, funny and understanding. He’s a part of me, the thought of him being gone is unbearable. He “gets” my sense of humour and can make me laugh even when I’m feeling low. He knows how to support me when things get rough. I trust him completely, and I’ve been badly burned with guys in the past so that’s a big deal.

He sees me as the real person inside and loves me for me, including all my imperfections. I’ve learnt more from my relationship with him than I can ever put in words, I like what he brings out in me. He makes me happier than I’ve ever been before.

Ok, I’ll stop there because this is starting to sound really corny…But it’s TRUE!!

Anyone that can honestly put up with me this long already, at my best, worste, through pregnancy and all the emotions that come with that, through financial hardships, and family problems is right for me. We have already been through so much. He is my rock, and the person that I can run to no matter what!! I respects me, and we have really great communication. In the same turn I am there for him in all of the same ways.

Sorry but I gotta list gut feelings!  I never felt like that for anyone and I still get little butterflies when I know he’s coming.  It’s been 6 years, so that’s pretty big.  He’s positive, tries to keep me from stressing so much, likes my weird sense of humor, I can say whatever I want, is willing to change to help our relationship and I know he is committed.  He says I love you every day and even in public! ๐Ÿ™‚

He is the one I can imagine being with for the rest of my life. He accepts me for who I am no matter what and is always there when I need him. He respects me and everyone around him, cares about me, and knows how i’m feeling without me ever saying it. He has supported me through good times and bad and can always make me smile even when i’m very down.
