When you find that special someone in your life, you know you want to marry them. You just know, you know?
Some people have trouble putting into words why they think their relationship is so special. Some folks think it can all be summed up with just one story.
Others will spend their entire life with one person, and never question if they had made the right decision about marrying them. They just know!
So when you ask folks what makes their marriage awesome, there are lots of different responses.
Every marriage is awesome in it’s own different way. It’s the union of two people who are totally different people, but have come together to make a stronger whole than they are apart.
Maybe you won’t get some of these stories, but they’ll definitely make sense to the people who told them.
See if you can spot your relationship in any of these touching stories!
“My husband is from another country and knows only a few words in English. However, these 4 words are enough to keep up with any conversation: really, oh great, and damn. It doesn’t even matter what we talk about.
Here’s our recent conversation:
— Honey, I’m so tired.
— Yeah, I don’t feel like cooking. Let’s order a pizza.
— Oh great!
— Wait, we don’t have any cash.
— Shall we go to the ATM?
We go around in circles. :D”
“I was doing my morning stretches and bent to touch my toes. My husband walked in and said, “Don’t bend to me. Just say, ‘Good morning, my King!’””
“My husband and I were swimming in the ocean when a crab pinched his leg. In the evening, he told our friends about this accident. Our friend asked, ‘Where?’ (meaning which part of the body). My husband replied, ‘I already told you. In the ocean’.”
“I picked up my husband from a friend’s on my way home. He’d just come back from a 3-day fishing trip, unshaved and in dirty clothes. At the gas station, he went to get a coffee. Several men said to him that he was so young to be homeless. I approached them, looked at my husband from top to bottom, and said, ‘You’re a nice guy. Drive?’ He nodded. ‘Wanna live with me?’ He nodded again, trying not to laugh. ‘Let’s go then. Here are the keys!’.”
“My husband and I were walking in the forest and looking for some mushrooms. 2 big dogs suddenly jumped out of the nearest bush. My husband stood in front of me to protect me. The dog’s owner rushed over and took the dogs away. In that moment I realized that he’d give up his life to save me. Words of love are not just words.”
“When my husband proposed to me, I said yes. But I asked if my mom could live with us (I swore to never leave her alone). He agreed and asked to bring his mom too. It scared us a little. 3 women under one roof — an explosive mix. But who knew we were so lucky! My husband and I found a note on the fridge: ‘Off on a cruise to pick up men. Love you!’.”
“I decided to make a romantic dinner for my husband. It’s been a while since I last cooked. It’s either work or tiredness. So I did. My husband walked in with a big bunch of flowers and said, ‘It’s been a while since I bought you some flowers’.”
“My boyfriend is in the hospital. I asked him:
— How do you like the life of a cat?
— What do you mean?
— You eat and sleep. I come, pet you, and leave. You eat and sleep again…
— Scratch my belly!”
“Yesterday was our 2nd wedding anniversary. People call it paper. We decided to go to a restaurant, but my mood wasn’t so bright. I asked my husband not to buy flowers this time. That evening I saw a small bunch of paper flowers on the front seat of the car. He said he’d been trying to make an origami flower for the whole day. Later he even tried to teach me how to do it. And you know, it’s the best flower I’ve ever received.”
“My wife has just come back from her first Italian class. She’s beaming with pride. ‘What’s the big deal?’ I ask. She says, ‘We studied the numerals 1 to 30. The teacher said it would be enough since we’re so young. But then he invited each student to say their own age.’ 42 years, and she’s still the same…”
“My husband has a special notebook where he writes down some phrases I say. He even makes me sign them so that the next time I claim I never said it, he can show me my own signed words. :-)”
“I remember going on a Girl Scout weekend with a bunch of moms and their daughters. I was a little nervous, as most of the moms in this group had the picture perfect husbands and lives. We were sharing about our husbands and I made the random comment that my husband still washed my hair in the shower. ‘Your husband washes your hair?’ said one of the moms, incredulously. That was the moment I stopped worrying about not being the richest or prettiest one there. My husband and I have been together 26 years (married 21). He’s pretty awesome. Little kindnesses go a long way.”
“Well, the first moment I had that thought after we got married was the first night on our honeymoon. We were road tripping to New York, and the first hotel we stopped at us gave us two queen-sized beds with SO MANY blankets and pillows. We were both exhausted from the long busy wedding day and had planned on just sleeping as soon as we got in, but we ended up deciding we needed to make a fort with all the bed stuff we weren’t going to use. Then we slept. Having someone to share goofy impulses with is awesome :)”
“Today, we went to IKEA and didn’t have a single argument. It was glorious.”
“Awhile after the wedding, when we were going over photos, I turned to her and said, ‘Let’s just get dressed up in the same getups next year and parade around a bit’. And she turned to me and said, ‘Oh, thank God I married someone who gets it’.”
“When my spouse still sticks with me after the hundredth time of me singing, ‘This is how we stew iiiittttt,’ to the tune of ‘This Is How We Do It”. Happens on the regular when I’m prepping food for the Crockpot. Also, today we long distance high fived when we discussed how hot Gerri Halliwell from the Spice Girls was back in the day.”
