Now as you know, 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 fab New York wife and mommy Quiana from Harlem Love Birds and her man!

What Makes Her Man Hot: “His humor, smile and height (6’8″!)”
A Wife Highlight: “We’ve known each other our entire adulthood, and no one knows me like he does; I love being with my best friend everyday!”
A Wife Gripe: “He’s not a planner like I am – more of a free spirit, but I’m learning to appreciate this.”
