A lot of things inspire me to want to keep my marriage healthy and happy. One of them is meeting other wives who are making it work every day, and loving it! I knew quite a few before I said “I do”, and since Man Wife and Dog Blog was born I’ve met so many more. They’re all so fabulous I want you to meet them too. And so Meet A Wife Mondays was born. This week, meet my good friend and former colleague Meredith Bodgas!
The Wife: Meredith, 28
The Man: Paul, 28
But You Can Call Them: Meredith and Paul (She didn’t change her last name.)
How She Snagged Him: “We were both drummers in our middle-school band class, and I asked him out many times until he finally said yes in 8th grade.”
Married Since: 5.31.08
The Pet: “Our building doesn’t allow pets (sad!), but we’re both big dog-lovers.”
Place They Call Home: A one-bedroom apartment in a lovely pre-war building in Forest Hills, Queens.
How She Pays the Bills: Web editor/blogger
How He Pays the Bills: Software analyst (tech support for the software his company creates).
What Makes Her Man Hot: “He’s super-duper smart, he’s kind and helpful to everyone, and he seriously has the best butt I’ve ever seen on a guy.”
A Wife Gripe: “He says, ‘I guess’ instead of ‘Yes’. I was worried he’d say, ‘I guess,’ instead of ‘I do!'”
Marriage Mantra: “No secrets.”
The 2-Year Plan: “In two years we hope to own a house, and if it has more than one bedroom, we just may try to have a baby.”
Wifey Wisdom: “Never lose sight of how lucky you are to have found each other.”
