I don't really have a close 'phone' friend that I call and share things with on a daily basis. My best friends are super busy with their own lives, so we visit once a week or so. I think that if something would happen to my dh, I'd need to start journaling so I'd have a place for all those mundane (and some exciting) things I tell him.
I also like that we are like-minded in raising our kids. I think they're so luck to have us both in their lives. (Like we're super lucky to have both of them.

We will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary on Tuesday. What I loved about him then and more so now is that. We are friends first and that no matter what obstacle is thrown at us we still continue to be.

I very seldom, if ever, bad talk my husband! We will be married 35 years this year! I was 19 and he was 20 when we started dating. I love the fact that he ALWAYS has my back. After all of these years he would rather eat my cooking than eat anything else. He calls me many times a day to see how I am doing. Always, always tells me he loves me. He is a wonderful father and even better grandfather. Works like a horse everyday and never, ever complains about it.
We still enjoy each other's company, everyday! He laughs at my jokes, even when they aren't funny. Compliments my crafty side. Says the house looks great, when all I did was vaccuum that day! Tells me how nice I look, even when I feel like crap!!

We have had the best and worst of times and come through it all. He is funny, handsome, caring, adventurous, athletic, talented, and someone I can always be myself with and talk to about anything. We have built trust with some stumbling blocks that have made us stronger when we were young. We also have overcome the challenges of having an adult parent live with us since our 20's and having some special needs with our DD. Honestly I couldn't ask for or dream of a different life thanks to my DH. Love him to the moon and back a million jillion times.

What an awesome thread!
I love the team DH and I have become.
I love that we push each other to grow in ways we might have avoided.
I love the children we created together- that part awes me the most! We have such amazing children and they came from us and God entrusted us to raise them!
I love having someone to bounce ideas off of, vent to, cry on, and laugh with.
I love how he is with our kids.
I love how we can feel like we're on a "date" in our own living room watching a movie together.
I love not having to face the world alone- the way he can build me up and encourage me an the support he gives me with my dreams and career,
I love us and our little family.

I was nodding my head at so many stories here.
I love the way DH brings out the best in me in a kind and gentle way. I used to be a slob and never knew how to keep house. He always cooked and cleaned when we got in from work and I was pretty lazy. Honestly - I just didn't have a clue what to do!
One day he came in the living room from working in the kitchen and extended his hand to me. As I stood up, he wrapped his arms around me and looked in my eyes and said "let's make a home together." I melted and that was a huge turning point for me.
He has a way of making people feel valued and he's an encourager. I couldn't imagine life without him.

There are a ton of things I love about marriage, big and small:
I love falling asleep/waking up to my husband
There's nothing embarrassing or awkward between us- it's just funny now
Our TV routine- I know this is weird one, but Sunday evenings before the work we begins we get in bed at 9ish and settle down to watch certain shows together. We have real discussions and snuggling and it's just nice
The kiss when one of us gets home from work
The emotional support
Midnight snack runs!

Ok, I'm just loving this thread and all the stories.
I too married young(by choice) and was told it would never last. I was 18. He was 19. This Sunday March 10th will be our 18th anniversary and I can honestly say I love him more today than I did the day we married. I jokingly say now "We got married out of lust and love grew."
He is truly my best friend and I couldn't imagine my life without him. He is my polar opposite but I think that's why we work. Things weren't always easy but we always came out on the positive end.
One thing I love most is, even on what I consider a bad day, he will just pop up and say "Ya know, you are beautiful" while I stand in the kithen in comfy "mommy" pants, old T-shirt with no make-up on fraziled while frantically dealing with our three kids. You KNOW that's love cause we all know that Lady isn't pretty! HEHE
He still brings home flowers or random gifts---just because. He is a WONDERFUL father which I find extremely sexy cause honestly not all men are good dads. Can I get an AMEN!
We always take a seperate vacation without children because everyone should focus just on their spouse every now then. He hates when I do this but LIKE DR. PHIL SAYS(He's not a Dr. Phil fan), "You must still be lovers and friends after you become mothers and fathers."
The key is to still focus and one another. The whole world doesn't revovle around the kids as much as us mom want to think so.
Gonna leave you with a few of my favorite quotes:
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times; always with the same person.
Love isn't finding someone you can live with; it's finding someone you can't live without.
We attract hearts by the qualities we display; we retain them by the qualities we possess.
Have a great day ladies.

I have the best husband in the world! Universe even! We have been married for almost 34 years and have known each other since we were 14. We got married when we were 19.
He is kind, moral, helpful, funny, serious, silly, a great father, and the love of my life.
Not that we don't have our "moments" LOL! But I wouldn't change a thing unless it was to be able to spend more time with him.

I love that after 23 years of marriage it's still like we are dating. However, there is a bond that can't be described that comes with being together so long. We don't have kids so it's just us. He held my hand and took me to every chemo treatment. When I had "chemo head" and got so frustrated he put his hands on my face and told me it was going to be fine. He is my lover and my best friend. I know I found the right man because he makes me a better person. I love being married to this man.
