I would not want to be an enabler of bad habits, disrespect, addictions, or emotional, verbal or physical abuse. I would not want to be the kind of wife who is a doormat or who looks the other way in the face of red flags.

I don’t want to be the wife that turns him down all the time and I don’t want to let myself go. Those are what I hear men complaining about all the time.

I second many of these!!! (Being ungrateful, being controlling, being a doormat, losing myself or not supporting my future hubby true self, losing our intimacy)

I don’t want to be the wife who has all the responsibility or is stuck being the “No” one. I don’t want my husband asking me for permission for everything especially financially or common sense-wise. He needs to know when we can’t afford to go out with friends or our schedule next morning is too important or why we can’t make a frivolous yet expensive purchase! I want to have fun and not always be so mature & responsible so sometimes he has to be the responsible one!!! 

Also I firmly believe with a few PP to put marriage before children. I am very adamant about this!

mrspereira:  I love the comparison to Gloria, did you watch the episode this season where she didn’t get all dressed up for Jay’s clients? And also the quote from that episode about her wearing heels, ”Comfort is not everything. My toes have been numb since my quinceañera.”

Some people might not agree with this this way of thinking, but I never want to be the kind of wife who spends more time with her friends than with her husband. I definitely think nurturing friendships is important, but I will always choose time with my husband over my friends because he is also my best friend. (Forgive me for the cliché.) Our relationship is the most important one I have. I think that’s how it should be. My SIL spends so much time with her male friends (one on one) and I think it’s really unhealthy for her relationship with my brother. Just my opinion though.

I don’t want to be the wife who nags, lets herself go, is clingy, or hates his friends. I don’t want to be the wife who all his friends think is a pain in the ass… You know there’s always at least one.

I never want to be that wife…… When out with other couples and everyone is enjoying themselves and she sits in the corner being a “Debbie Downer”

I don’t want to be the wife that makes my future husband think his friends were right when they told him (jokingly) to not get married bc it changes everything.

I never want to be the wife that forgets to keep it sexy for her husband now that she is married.

I never want to be the wife that doesn’t let her husband have his personal time.  

I never want to be the wife that doesn’t respect her husband as the man of the house.  

I never want to be the wife that takes her husband for granted. 

I never want to be the wife that forgets she is a person and loses her identity now that she is married.

I never want to be the wife that quits being silly and playing with her husband. My grandma and grandpa have been married around 50 years and still have little games they play together, tease each other, have inside jokes, etc. My favorite part about being married to my man is that we have so much fun together, even if we’re just running dull errands or cleaning the house.
