My Husband, My Best Friend

Married. 13 years. Dated 7 prior. Spent every waking hour with him before and after marriage- as much as time allowed. Cried every day. Every night. The first year was so hard. He misunderstood. He didn't know I was having trouble being love unconditionally. He didn't know I felt too free. He didn't understand too much freedom was not good coming from such an oppressive household.

He did when I told him. When I could put it into words. When I understood. He worked with me. When I dropped the dinner on the floor, he didn't know I would run and cower in the corner out of fear. Fear that I would be hit, belittled, yelled at like a piece of garbage. He didn't do that to me. Instead, he sat next to me, told me accidents happen, and he would never hit me. He chose me. He wasn't forced to be with me. He lifted me up. He taught me how to clean that mess and so many others.

He put up with me when I nearly committed suicide. He stayed with me when we lost our second child. He supported me when I learned I was submissive. He accepted my male mentor to give me structure. He allowed me to be friends with another male.

He waited for me when I broke up with him so I could grow on my own. He waited for me to finish college. He waited for me to heal enough to enjoy our marriage.

He is amazing in every way. My best friend. I am submissive. I am his wife. Though I am an equal with him, I am submissive to my mentor and to God. This makes me happy.

Me and my husband are the same I love every step he takes and every move he makes He does me the same we make dinner together we go every where to gather we have been married for 6 years and I can count on my fingers of how many times I have went some where by myself as in a store outside of him working he always goes with me and in most cases I will wait to go for when he comes home or for when he is off He trusts me but I put him as my every thing for he is my Love and if I do not want him to be around something is wrong with that we have a wonderful marriage it took a long time for me to find my Love but when I found him I was hooked for life we don't fight we don't fuss we talk and sometimes I do tend to get rowdy he looks at me gently and lovingly tells me that we will finish the conversation at a later time when I have calmed down but we have a lot to love
Thank God for my caring loving husband

This is what the BIBLE talks about. Not all this stuff about a woman being "taught her place" with beatings. GOD bless the home your husband has allowed you to create. So many times, two broken people try & fail to make a home.

Oh you made me cry. Wow! So much love there darling. Thank you
