Our life plans are so similar (we both want to retire on a huge country property, my idea was to run a bachelor party weekend away business and he loves the idea!)

He is incredible with children and will be an amazing dad.  We have similar beliefs in how children should be raised as far as discipline and morals.  He wants to have kids around the same time as me.

He has stuck through me through sickness, specialist appointments and a cancer scare and showed true strength and was there for me the whole time.

As someone whose never had a strong family network, his family has totally embraced me and brought me into the fold (although that took some time) his mum has referred to me as her daughter in law for about a year already, when she found out about his sister being pregnant, she told me I was going to be an Auntie.  If we were to breakup, I would feel like I was losing a whole family, not just a partner.

He is totally incredible and a generous lover in the sack 😛  I am never left wanting!

He is willing to sacrifice everything (join the army) to provide a secure stable job as a future provider for the family.  I travelled around my whole childhood and have gotten restless staying in the one place so long and know I will suit an army wife lifestyle of uprooting every 3 years.  I loved moving often as a child and am pretty good at making new friends for myself so I feel I will be compatible with this lifestyle.

He is incredibly handy at home and when away knows how to start a fire, fix a car or bike and heaps of other bits and pieces (weird but I find it incredibly sexy)

We have similar interests in our spare time, going hunting or riding motorbikes and just enjoying the outdoors.

He can make me laugh no matter what.  We can spend hours on the weekend talking in front of the fire, me with a glass of wine and him with a beer until the wee hours and it feels as exciting as a first date.  

He makes me feel so loved.  He randomly brings home flowers or will turn around and just say something so nice and sweet and when I say what was that for?  He’ll just smile and say because I love you.  He is really in tune to my feelings, if I come home from a bad day at the office he will often know before I have even opened my mouth and will do something small like pour me a glass of wine, start giving me a massage or even just a kiss on the forehead and I will just feel like everything is better.

He gets along with my closest friends.  All my friends LOVE him and are so excited for us.  He got to know one of my best friends boyfriends and now they are best friends and we often go on double dates.  We never have any issue when hanging out together and I am the same with his friends.  Even his friends and my friends get along great which means any birthday party or anything is always a great time.  We have actually been responsible for like 4 relationships starting due to them meeting through us (although sadly 3 have ended) socialising is just so easy!

I could go on and on.  I am so thoroughly in love with this man and feel so blessed and lucky to have him in my life.  Despite all the troubles we have been through in the last couple of years with money and family troubles etc if anything these issues have proven to me what a perfect partner he is for me.  I feel like we can get through anything and come out laughing.

He treats me with so much respect. None of my exes respected me so it was refreshing to see that no matter what, he respects me and never forces me to do anything I don’t want to do. I’ve been in a lot of abusive relationships and it was refreshing/relieving to find someone who would never, ever lay a hand on me. He doesn’t even curse at me. Even when he’s extremely angry. Plus, we are extremly compatible with each other. That’s some of the many reasons why I’m marrying him.

I feel like I can really trust him, he has stood by me through very hard times, he is a genuinely good person, and I believe he will work with me through any obstacle our marriage may encounter. The key to staying married forever is weathering the storms and working through the rough patches.

The first day I met him, as soon as I layed eyes on him I knew he was “it”. However, I quickly pushed those silly thoughts aside…I mean I didnt even know the guy. 

As years have passed I realized I was right. He has been my haven through all the c*ap I’ve been through in the past two years. He believes in me when I dont believe in myself. If I have a problem he sits with me and helps me look for solutions. If there are none, he hugs me and lets me cry on his chest. He never ever judges me for the crazy ideas I may get (“wanna become a Vegan? alright, lets look up recipies!” I will never forget or stop being grateful for this). 

And then, he is so increadibly, wonderfully silly. He bursts into random dance (specially bottie dances with that cute butt of his…cracks me up) for no good reason at all. He makes weird noises with his mouth, including this high pitch squeak with his lips…sounds like a mouse…and its so freaking adorable. He comes out with the most random answers to questions, which sound fake, and then I find out, he was right. 

He is brave and strong, and takes chances. He doesn’t let me or anyone hold him back if he thinks he is doing something that doesn’t feel right for him (even if the rest of the world would rather play it safe). He is incredibly kind, considerate and compassionate. 

The true test was when I asked myself if my children turned out like him, would I be ok with that. Not only would I be ok with it, I hope the do. 

That’s why Im marrying my crazy man.
