FINALLY got to watch The Fault in Our Stars, after saying I wouldn’t stay up and watch it…I caved in. Hands down one of the best movies I’ve seen lately. However I now have a wet pillow from bawling my eyes out….well worth it.
In a military town where it’s normal to see people divorced at 20, you start to notice that’s the norm. It stops being surprising to hear about. And here we are a year and a half after getting married and we’re still going strong. Well, it’s about the little things. I becomes we, you stop putting yourself first and think about your S.O more. A lot of people don’t understand that that’s how it works. That you actually have to STOP acting like you’re single because, see that ring on your left hand, yeah you’re married now. It also helps to know the person before-hand. No I don’t mean know them for a couple months…actually know them, live with them for a while before hand; see them on not only good days but bad days too, where everything in their world is slowing crumbling and then you’ll know if that’s who you want to be with.
For us we were that couple in high school everyone knew, we were off and on but he always came back and that was 5 years ago. Needless to say we know each other. We’re not sick of each other because we keep it fun, and actually love each other. I’m not saying we didn’t hit rough patches or it’s been easy. Our first year was tough because he was always gone for training and was deployed but I stayed strong. We fought over little things, some of which he thought I was going to go back home over, but we got through it. No cheating, no breaking of anything or throwing out the idea of leaving each other. He’s worth it all, that man is the greatest thing to happen to me.
Love for us is, me getting up in the morning while he’s getting ready and making him breakfast and lunch and leaving little notes in it to make his day better, it’s nerding out together, it’s going out on dates still, when the guys invite him to go out for dinner for someone who’s getting out and he invites me too so I don’t have to be home alone, holding each other all night and not wanting to get out of bed to go to work because then that means you actually have to let go of them, being able to talk about anything with them and feeling comfortable, making each other laugh, getting into fights over stupid things and not having it last long because you hate getting the other person mad, it’s when he buys me froyo even though he doesn’t like it but he knows it makes me happy, or when he buys Chinese food or pizza and brings home Oreos because it’s what I’m craving, holding me and comforting me when I feel sick, helping dye my hair, etc. Just when you find that one person who’s the one, don’t ever let them go; and never stop trying to sweep them off their feet just because you’re married you still try everyday because that’s true love. And you’ll know when you find ‘the one’ because you’ll think the sun shines out of their ass.I’m just glad I get to be married to someone who understands me, doesn’t try to change me, and is 110% my other half. There isn’t a single thing I wouldn’t do, or place I wouldn’t go for that man.
Without a doubt I’m the luckiest girl out there!
I was a pain in the ass all of yesterday because I felt like death yet he put up with me. And this morning I called out of work, let him know, and fell back asleep because I felt sick. He came in and woke me up with toast, and put my heating thing in the microwave for me. Then we went and played video games all morning, ate Oreos because he bought me even more. We cuddled and he taught me how to football, we ordered pizza, played more video games, and anytime I asked he would go heat the thing up for me, rub my back, and just hold me. I’m so glad to know that no matter how stubborn I can be I have a man that loves me at the end of the day and does anything to make me happy. That’s how all men should be, honestly.
Babe, I’m sorry I’m not perfect, and that sometimes I’m just moody and rude but thank you for loving me through it all and for taking care of me. I’ll try my hardest to be nicer when I’m moody and just want to cry. Just promise no matter what you’ll never leave me because I can’t even imagine life without you……it wouldn’t be worth it. I love you to the moon and back
The fact that he just told me that he loves me so much that if it meant he could never ride his motorcycle again he’d be fine with it, that’s true love
I haven’t said this enough lately, but my god am I lucky.
I have a husband that would literally do anything in his power for me, anything he could to see me happy. He’s the closest thing to perfect I have. Even when he’s frustrated with me he still looks past it. We talk about anything and everything which I love. He takes care of me when I feel Ill and spoils the shit out of me when its possible. I may take it for granted sometimes but I appreciate it all. I wouldn’t trade him for anything else in the world. We’ve worked so hard to get where we are. Its still hard to imagine where we were a year and a half ago. But its made us stronger which is good.
We may not have gotten the big wedding I always dreamed of but I’m completely fine with that.
Getting to come home to him every night, falling asleep curled in his arms and wake up to his smile and kisses is all I need in life. He’s my nerdy, tough, yet mooshy gooshy romantic, husband who keeps me sane. And I’m his crazy, sometimes overly moody, ice cold, video game playing wife who loves to drive him crazy. But we love each other even more because of all of it. I don’t know any other man that could deal with all the shit I put my husband through and at the end of the day still love me the way he does. That man desveres an award. Seriously.
I love you so much. Always and forever. No matter what gets thrown at us promise we’ll always get through it, together.
It’s about letting them drive your truck, surprising them with little things, going where they want and going where you wanted in return too, it’s about helping around the house, and always joking to make them laugh, loving, laughing, missing each other when you’re apart and enjoying your time when your together, it’s never pointing out their flaws but instead embracing and looking past them, it’s about taking care of each other.
I don’t like to brag…but…our marriage is pretty damn great. We always make people laugh and smile around us because we’re dorky. I was gone for 4 days and he would text me that he missed my face and was so happy when I got back. He got me my pink moscato and himself beer, because it’s only fair. We share food when we go out and joke about it. He helps out around the house which every girl wants their man to do. At the store he had me get a new mop so he wouldn’t have to worry about me mopping on my hands and knees, as long as he also got a broom. He surprised me at best buy by getting me a purple controller, that he found out they had because all I’ve been asking for is a pink one which they don’t make anymore. He found me one 100 times better because not only is it purple but it’s metallic!!! He’s good to me because my grandfather passed away this past week and he found a way to get me a ticket to get up there. He holds my hand always in stores, we joke and laugh and kick each other in the butt while we’re out. We’re never serious. I mean I was taking a sip of my Arizona and he went and stepped on the gas and I had it splatter at me so I laughed and unbuckled and wiped my face on his shirt.
That’s how marriage should be. It should be full of laughs, jokes, sharing, helping, loving, and always caring for your significant other, never putting yourself first. We weren’t always perfect but I’m glad we’re as happy as we are now, and it’s a week before our one year anniversary. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and it’s all thanks to my husband.
I love how even when I’m moody and nothing but a bitch he still finds a way to love me. He still reminds me of how much he loves me, and that means the world to me. We might annoy each other but we still have cute days. Days where we chase each other around the house laughing and tickling each other. Or tickle wars till we finally call truce. Or going out to dinner and slow dancing.
At the end of the day I know he’s not going anywhere and neither am I and that no matter what he knew what he was getting himself into and chose to marry me anyway. That’s true love.
I’m sorry I’m such a big pain in your ass. I just wish that he would be a tad more romantic like he used to be but even if he isn’t I still love him.
