I wish his job was closer to family. The only reason we live in this state is that he has a great job here, that he likes and is good at it. I just wish it was in a different city!

I wish my husband was more concerned about being healthy and active.

After losing a great deal of weight my outlook on eating healthy and being active has changed drastically and I wish he would get on board. He doesn’t have to be obsessed as I am but some veggies and a 30 minute walk wouldn’t kill him!

Honestly, I wish he was taller and a little less…strange. I can live with both of those things, obviously, but in an ideal world, that’s what I’d change.

I wish he was a bit taller. Sigh. I’m 5’9 and he’s like 5’9.5 – no heels for me. Oh well. 


Honestly though, I can live with the height. He loves when I rock my high heels and he’s not insecure enough to care.


But on a serious note, I am definitely a planner, love dreaming about our future house and kids and all these plans I want to make, where he can barely wrap his head around anything wedding related (its in July) because its too far away. Le sigh.


Again though, I can live with it. Its not the end of the world and it doesn’t outweigh all the good things, which is what it boils down to ๐Ÿ™‚

@Treejewel19:   This also, but mostly because his added weight is what I think made him a LOUD snorer.  Boo.  He was 140 pounds whhis we started dating in high school 10 years ago.  He’s more like 200 now.  Still love him, but I sure would like some quality sleep!

I wish he was a little bit taller, I wish he was a baller, I wish… no, none of those other things.

I wish he was more of a handyman! He is all thumbs at that stuff!

I wish he liked roller coasters.  I also wish he didn’t have to work so much overtime, but that’s a problem with Japan, not a problem with him.

But you’ve got to take the bad with the good and decide for yourself if there’s enough good to outweigh the bad.

I wish he were a billionaire.

And to answer your other question, no, in the end, it doesn’t matter.

@kerensa:  This is the one thing I would change as well! He has a fantastic job, but it’s rather far away from our families *sigh* I just wish they had offices near our families!

@chillinchillin:  I don’t think it’s unreasonable to want your man to be able to support his family.  I told my Fiance (then BF) that I wanted to be with someone that would let me stay at home and it’s something we’ve been doing for the past 3 years.  Even though he was a bit apprehensive about it at first, we both love it now.  I honestly can’t think of a single thing I would change about my Fiance except sometimes I wish his feet smelled a little bit better lol; but it’s nothing a shower can’t fix.

There are a couple of things that I can deal with, but I wish he didn’t do!

He’s messy. I can stand this but sometimes it seriously annoys me. I’ll spend 8+ hours cleaning the house, and he’ll come home in wreck it in half the time.

As the pp posted, he’s a little strange. To me, it’s embarrasing. He’ll burst out into song in the middle of grocery shopping, or just walk up to some random people and start telling a joke.

His humor is also… odd. Everything is morbid and sometimes racist. You really have to know him before you judge him because most people think he’s a tool. He just likes to be “funny”.

I wish he was a little bit taller, had a better job and had better fashion sense. 

He’s only slightly taller than me, so I had to carefully choose my wedding shoes. The job really isn’t his fault. He got the job not planning on staying there very long, but life happened and he’s been ther for 7 long, crappy years, making crap pay and working all the time. The fashion sense? I’ve almost given up on that part ever changing, haha.

But in the end, it doesn’t matter. I love him anyway, even though we both hate his crappy job that gets in the way of vacations or him having enough money, and even though he wasn’t blessed with the tall gene that every other man in his family got, and even if he thinks a pair of jeans without holes is pretty darn fancy.
