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. This week, meet wifey blogger Jasmine from The Mrs. The Mommy. The M.D. !
The Wife: Jasmine, 23
The Man: Nathan, 26
But You Can Call Them: The Johnsons
How She Snagged Him: “We met at a gathering in college (Go Blue!) Spring 2007. I was a baby Delta and he was a baby Kappa, it was a romance in true Crimson and Kreme fashion.”
Married Since: 4.16.10
The Pet: “No pets, the hubby has allergies.”
The Kid: Nathan II, 2
How She Pays the Bills: “Ballin’ student loans (JK) – finishing up my first year of medical school.”
How He Pays the Bills: “He’s a mechanical engineer for a pneumatics company.”
What Makes Her Man Hot: “He’s so romantic and thoughtful. He’s extremely handy and can do/build/repair just about anything he Googles for only a few minutes. He’s an awesome dad.”
A Wife Highlight: “It’s such a great feeling to know that he is always in my corner, and I love talking about him to people and saying ‘My husband'”.
A Wife Gripe: “He ALWAYS asks me where things are BEFORE he looks for them himself. It’s like that joke women tell about men never looking for anything, but real life…LOL!”
Marriage Mantra: “Your marriage should be a reflection of Christ’s love for the church. If seeing you with your spouse gives someone a reason not to get married, then you are probably doing something wrong.”
The 2-Year Plan: “I will be in school until 2014, but hopefully we’ll either have another baby by then or he/she will be on the way.”
Wifey Wisdom: “Everyone will have advice on how they feel things should be done (splitting holidays, raising kids, husband/wife roles, etc.), but you two have to follow your hearts and stick together in your decisions.”
