He was the man on my very extensive 2 page “list”….

  • He has a wonderful heart for/after God.
  • Has a strong character
  • Is a wonderful leader but is compassionate as well
  • Is a great provider
  • Is wonderful father to my (now our) DS
  • He serves & sacrifices for me just like my Jesus did for the church
  • He always encourages and builds me up to be more of who I can be as a mom, daughter, woman, and wife… even when I’m acting dumb
  • He’s taller than me when I wear high heels but isn’t taller than 6’1″ (yea that was on my list)
  • He enjoys doing/trying new things
  • Makes me laugh ALL the time!

To name just a few things… Loving him is a bonus!

He’s definitely my best friend, we can be totally rediculous together and we laugh about it. I do laugh a ton with him. He’s handsome and cute …and he really wants to start a family. We agreed on names for our children early on in our relationship (and I had some non-traditional names picked out). He’s really passionate about what he does. Those are just some of the reasons I suppose! 🙂


Too bad loads and loads of money didn’t come with it haha.:)

Because I couldn’t imagine my life without him. When you find your best friend, lover and travel buddy all in the same person, you’d be crazy not to fall in love with him and become his wife. Why go through life by yourself missing out on the opportunity to live a life full of adventure, love and knowing someone has your back 200%? Marriage is more than a piece of paper. It’s a pledge of your undying affection, commitment and challenge to grow old with your husband, no matter what circumstances come your way in life. I’m glad I took the plunge! Wouldn’t have traded it for anything. And his package and bank account are very nice, but I contribute too 🙂

@CanadianMermaid: This is too funny. Wish I could come up with something nearly as witty.

Basically, we grew up together (or at the very least, matured into adulthood together). We met in high school, dated for 6 years, and had similar goals. Also having and raising children is one of my top lifetime goals, and he is great with kids, is very loving and playful, etc. He’s also a great support and my biggest cheerleader.

I’m also madly in love with him, but forget I said that since you said not to talk about it! Wink

I’ll keep it simple. I truly can’t imagine anyone else helping me raise my children. I know he will be the best dad (and husband) ever!

financial security and immigration status. he already had a green card, so we were not worried about his US status. but one day we’ll move to canada and we wanted it to be as easy as possible for me. 

also, I could combine my health insurance with his, which was a major financial benefit.

Aside from all the love stuff and wanting to have a family and grow old with him and all that…

My maiden name was ridiculously hard to spell and pronounce. His is ridiculously easy to spell and pronounce, and I LOVE it. I’ve wanted that last name for a very long time, and now I finally have it!

A big reason that we got married is because he has a daughter who deserved the stability of a “stepmom” rather than “dad’s girlfriend”, and it’s meant a lot to her to have that.

I love him because he’s a hardworking family man with strong values about marriage. He’s very old fashioned and traditional… oh and handsome! He cracks me up every day and really loves me and my family. I knew I wanted to marry him but I think we got married sooner rather than later for his daughter and because I wanted little babies that look like him 🙂

I met the one very special guy who is willing to put up with my crap for the rest of my life.

He married me because he hates doing laundry.

Because I knew I wasn’t going to find anyone better. I mean that in a non-mushy way.

Umm, because he asked me to? Haha, I know that sounds dumb, but I’ve never been the “OMG I have to get married!!” type of gal.

But why do I want to be with him? Because he will be a great father, he has been very supportive of me (including financially), he makes me laugh soo much, and I love that we’re able to have honest discussions. There’s no game playing or on again / off again drama!!

We got married cuz we both know that we want to be together forever. Neither of us could imagine our life without the other in it and it’s not something we even want to think about. We are each other’s soulmates (sorry if that sounds mushy, but it’s true). We are partners for life and we aren’t going to give up cuz we sometimes fight. We’re both very committed to each other and we want to show that to each other and other people. Everyone else should know what we already know. We’re a great team and we work together so well cuz my good qualities make up for his flaws and vice versa. Plus, we support each other quite well. When times are tough, I know he’ll always be there to help me in anyway he can and I’ll do the same for him.
