Thought a thread that bragged about our husbands was in order


My sweetie is one amazing guy. He's kind, nurturing, SO patient, calm, tender, and all those types of things a woman needs. He has a great job and supports the family and is a great Dad. He's highly intelligent, quick witted and has an amazing sense of humor. And to top it off? He's REALLY handsome
I wouldn't trade him for anyone in the world.

Well, I love my husband for a million reasons! He is super intelligent and we share the same sarcastic, dry sense of humor... he is always making me laugh. I think one thing I love too, is that we are not just partners, we are the best of friends -- and even if he weren't my husband, he is someone I would seek out to be friends with...that means a lot.

He is so caring and nurturing and when we started dating (7 years ago) he was pretty *mainstream*... but through my slow corruption of his mind
j/k ... he is really crunchy now! He embraces and supports everything we do with our daughter, co-sleeping, attachment parenting, slinging, gentle discipline, etc... and he is the best father! He was so nice to me when I was pregnant (he is when I'm not too)... but when I was, he would run out at all hours for things I wanted, he would massage my back and feet, and get me the cheesy dvds I wanted from the library.

When we had our daughter, he was wonderful through it all...he even *pumped* me the first time because I didn't know how to do it and we were having such problems with breastfeeding......now that's love!

He is super talented and can play almost any instrument you throw at him! He can answer practically every question on Jeopardy (I call him Rain Man)...he can be tender and loving, making our daughter's dolly *talk* one minute, then the next he can be fixing a car or something... the perfect combination of yin and yang...

Besides that, he is uber sexy....see?

Sure, everyone has their little *flaws* but we are perfect for eachother!

I love my Dh more than anything ( along with our DC). He is wonderful, caring, supportive, and an awesome dad. We have 2 girls with another one due in Nov. I love how he still thinks I am beautiful and sexy after 6 yrs of marriage and 3 children. He has always provided a good life for us even when we were stuggling financially. He is a powerful man. He has built a prospurous business from the ground up. He is a very hard worker and very dedicated to the ones he loves. He would do just about anything for anyone and he has a heart of gold when it comes to our family. He is smart, handsome, and everything I ever wanted in a man. I love him more now than the day we got married. And I continue to find thigs out about him that make me love him even more.

My dh works so hard so I can be with the kids all day. He is very respectful of me and sees me as his equal. He is very sensitive and just so not like your sterotypical man. That's one of the reasons I love him so much. He is the biggest goof-ball I've ever met, and he makes me laugh so hard almost constantly. He is the best dad, and just adores our children. He never questions my parenting choices, as a matter of fact, he agrees with them completely.

Why do I love dh? Well...I was at the tail end of a hellish few years when I met him - horribly stressful job, emotionally abusive marriage, near-poverty (inflicted by my ex's addictions), very poor physical health (three m/c, severe depression, several bouts of bronchitis, etc.)...I was in rough shape, and had almost forgotten how to have fun. I never went anywhere, except a few little trips with my son and my nephew (eg. picnics at the local stream). My ex and I hadn't done anything together in a few years. Anyway...

DH has made me smile at least once every single day since I first started talking to him online. It's never matter how bad my dad is - when I was told my OB would drop me if I didn't give up on my VBA2C...at 41w, 5d...dh actually made me smile. That's enough to love him right there!

DH was willing to give up a good job, his family and his friends to move 3000 miles to live with me and ds1. He did that because I didn't want to uproot my son after a miserable divorce, and he agreed that it wouldn't be in my son's best interests, so he just left home and moved to another country (Canada from the US is a bigger shift than some people realize).

He didn't have any real preference about whether I stayed home or went to work, as he can see pluses to both. But, I'd always wanted to be a SAHM, and was unable to with ds1. So, dh left the choice up to me, and never has a bad thing to say about the effect on our finances. Likewise, if I decided to go back to school, get a job or whatever, he'd be behind me 100%

He's treated ds1 as his own from the get go. He makes every possible effort to do the best thing for him, including giving up on the creature comforts so ds1 can have a few of the "bells and whistles" (eg. Scouts and Tae Kwon Do). DH even volunteered as a Cub Scout leader for ds1's Pack when dh had only lived here three months! (DH is younger than I am...for ds1 to be his son, he'd had to have had him when he was only 17.)

He's completely supportive of b/f and cosleeping, even though he had no preference before dd was born. He's not always fond of having a baby in the bed when he'd like to snuggle, but he's willing to go along with it.


He's a wonderful, wonderful dad. He's always willing to take dd out - whether he's running errands or thinks she needs to go to the park. He'll sit with ds2 on his lap and snuggle with him, and only mildlly complains about the spit-up (ds2 is a champion). He'll get mushy about the 3-month-old smiles and lights up over all of dd's little accomplishments. He's just such a loving dad...and stepdad.

He never, ever, ever thinks or suggests that I have it easy being a SAHM. He knows it's a lot of work, and never fails to let me know that he appreciates it. He also feels that the housework is his job, as well as mine. I do more of the day-to-day stuff, because I'm here. But, he says my job is looking after the children, which includes the "fun stuff"...time at the park, birthday (or Halloween) parties, Christmas events, etc., etc. So, if the vacuuming isn't done, or supper is late, I don't hear a word...in fact, he'll cook if it looks as though I'm not going to be able to get it done by a reasonable time.

He encourages me to do things that are good for me. He wants me to get exercise, not because he doesn't find my fat body attractive (he does - men are weird), but because he knows I'm happier when I'm more active. He goes hiking with me, and doesn't mind that I slow him down. He supported me totally in finally getting my driver's license in June - two weeks after my 37th birthday. He's just always there to give me a shoulder to cry on, a hug or push...whatever's needed.

I could go on and on and on and on...in fact, I think I already have!
DH just absolutely rules...and he's one sexy hunk of man, imo!

I love my Dh because he is my friend. He treats me like a queen. He does most of the laundry, does the dishes & helps with the kids. On his days off he prefers to hang with his family. His friends all take off on their days off & they invite him, but he turns mosts invites down, as his family means the world to him. No mattter how bitchy I can be, he loves me. He has patience that I do not have. He is the best & I am very lucky to have him in my life.

My DH is a loving, atentive partner, very caring and affectionate toward our DD--not a distant dad at all, and we both had distant dad's. He works 9 to 5 to keep me able to be a stay at home mom. He also knows how to compromise.

I love my husband because he is totally supporting. He supports me and believes in me when I try my best to cook our meals from scratch and eat healthy, when I am telling him about all the new Gd discpline things I am learning. When I have had a bad day I can always vent to him and, even though he sometimes tries to FIX everything that's gone wrong, alot of times he just gives me a much needed hug and some sympathy.

He is good at helping me with the housework. But most of all I LOVE him because he is the father of our children (and we had fun doing that, heh) He's a wonderful man, a wonderful partner, he's handsome, fun to be with and I just wouldn't trade him for anyone else!

Oh, and after reading some of the replies, I have to add that he puts his family before everything else. He perfers to be with us on the weekends and during time off and frequently turns people down for nights out because "He wants to go home to see his children and wife!"

Because he is kind, gentle, intelligent, hysterically funny, goofy, thoughtful, amazingly sensitive, and because he is the most fabulous, loving father. He really gets what a blessing it is to have children, and he sees everything that is wonderful about our boy. Sometimes, he's told me, he has a hard time staying at work because he starts craving our son so much. He can't imagine leaving on business because, he says, it would pain him to be away from DS that long.

Plus, he's hot.

Plus, he does pretty much all the housework.

Sigh.

Hmmm...How do I love him? Let me count the ways (in no particular order):

1. He works his cute little buns off so I can spend as much time as possible with our girls.

2. Although he comes from a background that does not lend itself to a desire for a semi crunchy lifestyle, he not only is tolerant/supportive of my ideas, he's starting to get behind them.

3. He loves the heck out of our girls.

4. He believes in taking responsibility for himself and his family.

5. He is tolerant.

6. He, like me, is frugal.

7. He thinks I'm sexy.

8. He has a great sense of humor.

9. He's helped me learn a new language.

10. He builds beautiful things for me and our daughters.

11. We share the same goals/dreams.

12. He appreciates my brand of crazy.

Yep. He rocks.

Well he's Hot! I love the way that he looks and the way that he smells drives me wild (his own natural scent)

He's so smart and funny it just blows me away

He's a good provider and he's free thinking.

I love the fact that he's anti religious, loves punk, and that he is into "geeky" things.

He always says thank you.

He's a great lover.

He always hugs, kisses, and tells me he loves me. Even if we just had an argument he will hug me and say "I love you anyway"

What a nice thread! Really nice to read. Let's see.

DP convinced me to have a baby (the greatest thing in my life). She works her buns off so that I can be a SAHM and homeschool DD. She totally gets homeschooling and other "crazy" ideas that are important to me. She is endlessly optimistic. She'd do anything for me, if I convinced her it was important to me. She is a wonderful loving momma to our kids. She is playful and really patient with the kids. She cleans the kitchen often. She only dogs me out a little bit for being such a crummy housekeeper. She is totally remodeling our house so we can sell it and afford something nicer for the kids. . . And on and on.

i LOVE my dh too. i've been with him longer than any other relationship now. our 3 year anniversary was on halloween!


i love his smell, even when he's sweaty he smells good, somehow.......he's magic.

i love his intensity, how protective of me and our daughter he is and how i always feel safe with him.

i love how silly and playful he is with both of us.

i love how he emails me during the day at work like he misses me SO much, even though he comes home every day for his lunchbreak.

i love his taste in music and art.

i love how he lets me rub my feet on him while i'm falling asleep at night.


i love that he tries to support my decisions even when he doesnt understand why.....i'm talking about the crunchiness here.......and i love even more how as time has gone on, he's become crunchy himself in different ways!

my favorite picture of us
