I also love having my best friend around all the time. He’s the best!

Selfish reason: I love that I’ll have someone to care for me when I’m unwell or sad.

More selfless reason: I love taking care of him! And being there for him when he needs someone.

I waited a long time for him.  I thank God every day that we ended up together.

I can’t wait to grow old with him. 

My favorite thing is the unconditional love.  I can tell him anything. There is no judgment.  He will always love me, and I will always love him.  No matter what.  

 

I should add – he looks pretty hot wearing that wedding ring  πŸ™‚

Hello, fellow October bride!  πŸ˜›

I love being a part of a team.  Sure, you’re a team when you’re seriously dating, too … but this team is different.  It’s special.  You and him against the world.  I love it.  πŸ™‚

I love always having him around and always knowing I have someone to go home to.

I love having someone to share everything with.

I love having someone I can tell anything to and vice versa.

I love having someone to sleep next to every night.

So many things….

bcaudle10315:  I didn’t marry until I was in my 40s, so I really am learning to appreciate the differences in my life now that I am married. I enjoyed many blessings while single also, but being married has enriched my life in many ways.  Here are some of the things I love about being married:

1. Being “one flesh” with my husband from a spiritual perspective. By uniting us in marriage, God has created something that did not exist previously when we were two individual people.

2. The commitment. I know that my Darling Husband and I are committed to each other as long as we both shall live. From the moment we were wed, no matter how many challenges we faced, we both knew that the other was committed to the vows we made before God and to each other. There is great peace in knowing that, by God’s grace, we each have been and will continue to be there for each other.

3. Having my husband as a spiritual covering for me. There are some inherently challenging things involved in this, since I was VERY used to being on my own as a single woman. However, I welcome and embrace my husband’s spiritual covering and the knowledge that God has, on numerous occasions, used my Darling Husband to help me to see things from a different perspective. For example, I tend to be very Type A and driven to perfection. I also am a planner, and I tend to obsess over and stress out about details. My Darling Husband is not those things, although he does do many things with excellence. He is very spontaneous, and he doesn’t worry or fret over almost anything ever.  He has really helped me to learn to slow down, to live in the moment, to be present when I am with people instead of getting lost in my own thoughts, and to “let it go” when I can’t do anything about a situation that I’m trying to fix.

4. Through my Darling Husband, I now have an AMAZING family! I do not have my own children, but, because of my marriage, I have four incredible stepchildren and two wonderful in-law children as well as the most precious, adorable grandbabies I could have ever imagined. I may not have married until very late in life, and I would have been a much older mother to a baby, but a I am a young grandmother! πŸ™‚

5. I love the partnership that is marriage. I am no longer one person — just me. I am part of a wonderful WE. We work together to do this thing called life with each other. We each have areas of our life and home for which we are responsible, and sharing those tasks makes them less of a burden than it would be for one person having to do everything alone.

6. My Darling Husband is a pastor, and I am incredibly blessed by the loving, giving people of our church. I had to change denominations when I married my Darling Husband, and I had to leave behind decades-long friendships that I made during my involvement/membership in (sequentially) two different churches in my former area. I also had to leave some ministry opportunities that I had. However, God has given me wonderful, new relationships and opportunities that I never would have known were it not for my marriage to my Darling Husband.

7. I love that my Darling Husband is very intelligent as well as supremely witty, and funny. I value his insights and opinions, and he really makes me laugh!

8. Finally, I love being able to share the physical intimacy that marriage provides.

I love the comfort in knowing that every bit of effort we each put in is a building block to building our whole lives together

I love falling asleep with him every night and waking up to him every morning

I love when he calls me his wife, and equally when I call him my husband

I love that all of our future plans and dreams include each other, without any doubt

I love that he wants us to have children just as much as I do

I love that he shows patience when I am being a stinker

I love feeling protected and cherished by him

I love that our families get along so well and want only the best for us

I love my in laws πŸ™‚

I love looking at our wedding photos and tearing up almost every time

I love thinking about growing old together, and every adventure along the way

I love that I have my best friend, confidant, football watching buddy, nerd lover, my secret keeper, my coach in life, and my happiness all rolled into one. He is literally the one person in the world where I know he won’t judge me for eating my feelings, making fun of someone, sucking in Mario Kart or not washing my hair for a couple days. I can ask him questions and he answers without hesitation. We have weird conversations that would make normal people lose their crap, and well I just love him for everything that he is. (Except never cleaning the bathroom, but every person has their faults )

I love having someone who’s always “got my back” and I’ve got his. I love being a team and knowing he’s one my side 100% of the time.

I love coming home to him everyday and waking up with him every morning (we dated for 8 years before we got married and didn’t live with each other before. Living with him has been a blast).

I love the anticipation of our future together. Future children, growing old, grandchildren, all of life’s adventures we get to experience together.

I’m also weirdly obsessed with having his last name. I love being Mrs. _____. (it’s also easier to say, spell, and is much higher on the alphabet scale haha).

I love that he’s allllll mine! He’s honestly the best man I have ever known (next to my daddy, of course!) and I’m insanely proud to call him my husband. Every day someone comments on how wonderful he is and knowing I’m that man’s wife is a blessing.

Awwww I just wanna go hug him now! Thanks for making such a lovely post!
