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 that I want you to meet them too. This week, meet one of my favorite wife-bloggers, Hallie!
The Wife: Hallie Fairfax Goodman Moore, ageless
The Man: Joseph Slade Moore , similarly ageless
But You Can Call Them: The Moores
How She Snagged Him: “He knew I was the one right away, but I wasn’t single. So he waited…”
Married Since: 6.18.06
Place They Call Home: Part time in Prospect Heights Brooklyn, and part time in Hudson, New York (2 hours upstate)
How She Pays the Bills: Freelance magazine writer and blogger
How He Pays the Bills: Art Department for many popular reality TV shows
What Makes Her Man Hot: “His smell, his eyes, his laid-back, under the radar wit.”
A Wife Highlight: “I feel like together we are a true force. We can weather ANYTHING, and kind of already have. It’s crazy cool to look back each year and realize that our bond has become even stronger…again and again. We once got kicked out of a game of Celebrity for having a “psychic connection,” (I would say a single word and he’d immediately guess the correct answer) so that was pretty funny. I’m definitely with the right guy.”
A Wife Gripe: “He snores like a Grizzly with a broken nose, and he fights armies of ninjas in his sleep each night. Funny? Yes. Restful? Oh hell no.”
Marriage Mantra: “We both believe that marriage is forever. When you really, truly sign up for that, it changes everything about the way you operate.”
The 2-Year Plan: “Even though we are ageless, spring chickens with nary a wrinkle between us (read: sarcasm), the clock is ticking on the whole bambino thing. So that’s next on the agenda. It’s not on today’s To Do list, but we’re staring down the barrel.”
Wifey Wisdom: “Spend time enjoying being married. Try not to get too caught up on all the ‘outer’ milestones.”
