I Have the Greatest Husband In the Whole Side World

We are kindred spirits, soul mates. We see eye to eye on nearly everything. We like most of the same interests and we can even finish each other's sentences sometimes! It is uncanny!  He is my best man in more ways than one! I don't know what I'd do without him!

We're getting ready to celebrate our 15th in June. Looks like you have a lovely family there too Tigger!

jojo, sounds like so far everything is going great, how long have you two been together.?

Well, you know what? you described my husband and I nearly to a "T" except for the basketball and tennis thingy. LOL<br />
We balance each other out....That says it all! My husband is on the introverted side, I'm the extrovert and he calms me. LOL I'm sure he'd like to muzzle me with regard to my open opinions but I can't be held down anymore!Sounds like you guys have it going on! I'm happy about that......And we don't need any medication to make it that way! LOL

"greatest" is quite the word. I'd say that my wife and I are far from perfect, but we're perfect for each other. We really lucked out. <br />
<br />
Like you and yours, our interests overlap in so many areas. She loves reading, and I'm an English lit major and (former) creative writer. I love science, and she graduated in bio-chemistry. We have many similar interests in books and movies, but not completely the same, so we're always exposing each other to things that we never would have grabbed on our own. We are probably among the most liberal people in MT. She's an agnostic, I'm an atheist. If anything, we are too happy to be alone with each other. Our sense of humors match. She's high strung and I'm as mellow as can be, we balance each other out. She excites me, I calm her. I loved basketball and got her into watching and following it. She loved tennis and got me into it. Now we watch basketball and tennis together all the time.

Haha! Even though we know why, tell us why your wife has the greatest husband! Let's hear your side!

Darn, it did have such a "Here's a story, of a lovely lady..." ring to it...

No, I'm one daughter shy and I'm a brunette with brown eyes. LOL

I think I saw you on tv, Jojo. Is your last name Brady?

That's so nice of you to say Reaching........ Your day is coming too, ladies!<br />
<br />
Lilt, I know what you mean! I think it's the same way for my grand daughter. She especially lover her uncle Boo, the 18 year old. He takes up a lot o time with her. I have neat pictures of them 2 when they were much younger too!

See, you know what I'm talking about. They are old enough to really want the best for him. They have taught him so many things. And I see them pull him aside sometimes and say "hey, that's not cool." He thinks his big brothers hung the moon.

13 year spread! Wow. I'm 12 years older than my brother and he is the apple of my eye. I love him so much and had a great hand in his rearing. So I think it's a win-win situation for you all, Lilt! We are looking forward to Vegas in April. We love those side trips!

Haha. Jojo, we have the same situation here, only the 7year old is not our grandson. He was born the year the twins went to h.s., 13 yr. spread. They are great with the little man. They are finishing up their 2nd year of college, but live on campus here in town. So they get to come around often (especially when food is involved.) They just came and stayed the weekend with him, while we went off for fun in Nashville. How cool is that?<br />
<br />
Yes, if you stick through the first 15 years or so, things to get easier.<br />
And more fun!

It's been awesome. Krypton, the past 15 years have been really good. I'm not saying we haven't had a few bumps but those were mostly kid related. He is understanding and he supports me in everything I do. Start thinking 15 or more years because it does get better, right Lilt? We have one just spreading her wings and slowly moving out (she's 20) and the last one just turned 18 and is a senior in HS. We see a light at the end of our tunnel and after sacrificing so much for the kids, we are prepared to enjoy ourselves a bit more. We are raising my 6 year old grand daugher while my oldest daughter gets her act together (if she ever does) but the other kids pitch in and spend time with her too. Love and friendship conquers all!

You are off to a good start, Krypton.<br />
Just don't think there are any days off!<br />
Marriages take a little attention everyday.

This is wonderful to read from both you and Lilt. My husband and I were friends long before lovers and does seem to be the best kind of start. I can't even imagine 15 or more years, at this point.

***speechless***<br />
<br />
and that never happens

I don't know if you had read the story of the history of my husband and I. If not:<br />
<br />
My husband was the best friend of my first husband who lost his battle to leukemia in 1994. My husband was the best man at our wedding. Nearly a year after my first husband's death, my husband and I got together after his terrible divorce to spend time and do things together with the kids. He was left to raise his 3 boys. We spent a lot of time together nearly every weekend and after about 3 months, the weirdness went away and we became romantically involved. We then blended our families and have lived happily ever after for the past 14 years. The kids got along well because they were friends before they became "siblings." I have been lucky in love twice. My husband is truly "my best man." Who could ask for more? :-)

going on 15.

We've been married almost 21 years, how about you?

haha Lilt! I can just imagine the fantasies you guys had while lusting though! Friendship is certainly the key. Without that, you can't get very far, I don't think. I do know I'm very fortunate to have the relationship I share with my husband. He watches TV and I type on the computer. I also read him funny stories! ;-O

Jojo....I think the friendship first part is key.<br />
My husband were great friends and were even roommates. We put aside our lust for a long time, because you're just not suppose to fall in love with your roommate, you know?

Sure. We were friends for many years first! Friends and lovers. It's awesome!

thats what it has to be like a close friendship
