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 blogger Tiffany from The Chocolate Knot!
The Wife: Tiffany, 28
The Man: Marty, 35
But You Can Call Them: The Maberrys (no, it’s not Mayberry)
How She Snagged Him: “We worked for the same company, but it took two years for us to ever acknowledge each other.”
Married Since: 6.27.09
The Pet: “We’ve got a few tropical fish, but Marty’s been dying for a schnauzer.”
Place They Call Home: “A 5-bedroom home in the suburbs just minutes from Atlanta.”
How She Pays the Bills: Corporate Blogger (Online Content Manager, to be exact)
How He Pays the Bills: Loss Prevention District Manager for a major retailer
What Makes Her Man Hot: “He’s always been dedicated to his career, his eyebrows, and his teeth are perfect!”
A Wife Highlight: “The best times we have are when we’re laid out on the couch watching Lifetime movies, crime documentaries or murder mysteries. The time goes by so slowly and I love it!”
A Wife Gripe: “His beliefs about gender roles are stuck in the 1950s. He wants to bring home the bacon while I do everything else. No sir, not up in here! I submit this video as part of my answer”
Marriage Mantra: “Communication is key.”
The 2-Year Plan: “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes… *Kanye shrug*”
Wifey Wisdom: “Don’t sit back and envy all the couples around you. Work actively to make your marriage what you want it to be. If you feel like you and your spouse don’t communicate/spend quality time together/go out or whatever, do what it takes to MAKE those things happen. Otherwise you’ll become bored, bitter and resentful – a dangerous combination.
