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 Jia from Untypically Jia!
The Wife: Jia, 26
The Man: Matt, 27
But You Can Call Them: The Woodruff’s
How She Snagged Him: “Boy meets girl. Boy steals girl from best friend. Girl is THAT hot. Boy marries girl. (Best friend forgives.)’
Married Since: 2.28.04
Place They Call Home: “New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment (or Entrapment, depending on which season it is)”
How She Pays the Bills: Housewife
How He Pays the Bills: Customer Service Representative
What Makes Her Man Hot: “His sense of humor, his way of totally getting me, his dedication to family and friends.”
A Wife Highlight: “Our best days are spent at home watching our favorite television shows. There’s no need to go out and live life when you can watch other people do it better. And sometimes with vampires.”
A Wife Gripe: “He hates The Lion King. Who hates The Lion King? Honestly.”
Marriage Mantra: “Our wedding songs have become our marriage mantra: ‘From This Moment On . . . Nothing Else Matters’.”
The 2-Year Plan: “Matt will continue working toward his bachelors degree in business management. Jia will continue working on her goal of looking like a Hooters girl. They might get knocked up somewhere between the two.”
Wifey Wisdom: “Don’t expect to change the other person, instead, learn to change yourself. I didn’t start out my marriage reading comic books and having a deep knowledge of Star Wars and Star Trek trivia – but here I am. Live long and prosper, y’all.”
