My husband and I have been married for about 21 and a half years. I was 19 and he was 21 when we got married so we’ve basically grown up together. I have to say that I really think we have the best marriage of anyone I know. It’s awesome to be together this long and still enjoy each other as much as we do. I wish everyone could have that sort of a marriage.
One reason why its always been so good is because our relationship has always been a priority for both of us. We take the time and energy to make the other feel important and special. We have always spent a great deal of time together. He is my best friend and I am his. From the beginning we’ve both just known that our marriage, and our life in general, is up to us. We can make it as good or bad, happy or sad, easy or hard, as we choose.
I do have to admit that I am especially fortunate because my husband is probably the most wonderful, loving, attentive, romantic man in the world. He’s always telling me how gorgeous I am, how much he loves me, how lucky he is to be married to me, how special I am. He makes me feel treasured all the time. It’s nice to know that I am as important to him as he is to me.
Because of me being a stay at home mom and wife for most of our marriage, we haven’t been big on presents for one another. Now that I’m working that may change some though. It’d be nice to be surprised sometimes with a gift, card or even a special getaway trip. I found a great website with Interflora gift ideas for women that I’d love for him to check out. Maybe I should leave the site open on my laptop, lol! It’d be fun to get some beautiful flowers like these…..
Regardless of whether you buy presents for each other, make time to be alone, compliment each other, or whatever else special you do, just be sure that you make your relationship a priority! Your marriage should be most important and your spouse should always know that they are number one!
