Second Chance

I not only love my husband, I like him. We like spending time together. I don't generally rank or rate my friends. I think friends are close or distant in different ways depending on life experiences at any given time. I consider my husband my best friend and since we have built a relationship out of similar previous experiences (failed 1st marriages) - we have common goals - first of which to make our second chance with each other successful.

I envy you :)

Your story sounds a lot like mine! I've known my (second) husband for 11 years. We've been married the past 4 of those years but before that were best buddies for years, even when we weren't seeing each other romantically for a while.

ain't it grand? it's easier to love someone out of obligation, but much nicer when the love is not obligated & you like the one you love.

MitchandMaureen - truth be told I dated my husband for 5 years before we lived together for 3 years and then decided after 8 years together that marriage could work out well for us. that was 7 years ago - so to make your math easy - a total of 15 years together. and good news is we still like each other!

I am so glad that you have this kind of relationship with your husband!
