The other day I posed a question on Twitter and Facebook that wound up being a very popular one. The question: What’s the number one reason you married your spouse? I knew it would be a tough one – it’s hard to pick just one top reason you love your soul mate – but I heard some great answers none the less. I shared that my reason was because I realize my husband was and is my true best friend. That has always been something that means more than words to me.
Life won’t always be easy. When times are tough and trying, it’s important to have a true friend by your side. Yes, he’s my husband, but he’s also the one person in this entire world who completes me, understands me, and makes a bad day okay, often instantly. Because he’s my best friend he always tells me the truth, whether I like it or not, he knows what I’m thinking before I even part my lips, and he knows how to make me happy when no one else can.
I could write a laundry list of reasons my husband was and is 100 percent marriage material but I’d much rather hear your top reasons, and share some of the awesome ones that were already shared with me. So ladies, if you had to name your top reason for marrying your husband what would it be? And why was that most important to you? Is it why you said yes when he asked you to be his wife?
Some of my favorite “reasons” that were shared:
Taiisha Bradley said: “He has loved me since I was a kid! 17 years chasing me, lol”
Andrea Kane said: “Because together we are complete.”
Kim Ulmanis said: “His bad-ass sense of humor. I need someone who can keep up with my sarcastic banter and he can.”
Okay, your turn. List one, if you can.
