I just want to put a welcome out to all of the new moms, and to the thousands of mothers we already have. This is a place to talk about and brag about our Wonderful husbands.
This is not a place to advertise. This is not a place to nag. This is not a place for Almost married people. This is not a place for engaged couples. This place is for a wife to brag about her husband.

I try and read each and every post, even if i dont respond to it.

I have one truly dear friend that I have met on this site, Shelly, and she helps me with keeping these conversations on topic. So this is also a big Thank You to Shelly for all her help!

Read conversations, put in your opinions and thoughts, start conversations, and enjoy your time here. Thank you all for joining.

At this very moment, there are 56,329 members! When i started this site, i was hoping for 100. LOL

Gosh Lorrie is speaking the truth. Or typing the truth I should say. But i think we surely need to accept people the way they are, and find things we love about our husbands. And I think if ever anyone wants to try and change their husband, they should first ask their husband what they themselves can change for their husbands. Lorrie, total thumbs up for your statement about change!

I think its great that u r looking with in yourself to better ur marrage instead of looking at his neg. It seems to me that the one issue people have is that they don't really accept others for who they r. My husband and I accept each other for who we r. We all have faults and I love his because its part of what makes him who he is. (And I'm sure I have alot more faults than him) but he accepts me and loves me for the good and the bad. We can not change otheirs but we can change ourselves and our way of thinking so keep thinking positive.

Just wanted to say how wondrful it is to have a place to praise our husbands instead of "venting" about them. So tired of hearing woman (friends) say how bad their husbands are or how rotten men are in general. Mines not! I am truely bledded to have him. We have been married for 23 years and I still get butterflys when I hear him coming in the door.

I married my wonderful husband on the 29th of Sept 2007 after 10 years of dating if that is what you want to call it. He has always been there through life's ups and downs. Plus he is the only one that can tolerate my mother because I can't. He is a wonderful father to our first child which was born on the 17th of Feb 2009. We try to avoid high daycare cost by him working 1st and me working 2nd shift. He cooks dinner every night while taking care of little man and lets me sleep in on the weekends. He is not just my husband he is also my best friend. I love how he is open minded, respectful and understanding. I would be at complete loss if I didn't have him. He is my living angel that I always wished for.

I am not going to lie. When we were first married I thought I was a lottery winner. After years of thinking I had the perfect marriage and the best man of all my friends things started to break down and I will never have that kind of selfish pride again. I have not always seen my husband as my knight in shining armor. However, I joined this group for a very specific reason. I want to see him that way. We have been married for 12 years and I am pregnant with our first child. Our relationship has been contentious for several years now but we are both ready for a change. But we don't want that change to be us being divorced. So I have decided to dedicate my time to finding the good in him and praising him for it. I think by reading other loving posts with an open mind I will find inspiration. Continuing to read and respond to complaints about marriage and other husbands isn't really having the desired effect. I would like to focus on the positive and learn to let the negative go. Hopefully I will find things in common with the wives here to further that goal.

I quite agree with this group. I have so many friends who are dissatisfied with their mates and then they meet me. I love my husband so much. I can cry at times with the unselfishness acts he does. He's not only a great husband and father, but a great son because my mother-in-law is going in for a second knee replacement after my operation happened three weeks ago. What do you think? He's there waiting for her to come out of recovery and settle her in before coming home to help me with the house and kids. I always thought that if I was lucky to get somebody who loved his mother, those skills would translate into being a good husband. But he's more than a good husband, he's my best friend. Okay, there I go being emotional again.

Quoting Kim:

It is so lovely to find somewhere women dont bitch about their husbands, as is usually the case when you get a group of women together. My wonderful husband was chuffed when i told him i let the world know how wonderful he is.


i completly agree..i love my husband to death because he has been so good to me and the baby. its hard to tell my friends that because there having such a shitty time with there husbands

I so agree, finally women who don't always have something negative to say. I love bragging on my husband and I'm glad to surround myself around women who don't mind doing the same. Thanks for welcoming me to the group!

The ladies at church don't involve me in their conversations because I uplift my husband instead of nagging about his faults. This is a great page!!! I'm a stay at home mom and a home school mom, my husband works three jobs so that I'm able to take care of and teach our two boys. He's the best! He's constantly trying to make my life easier; even if it's over his own needs or wants. So there’s no way I can speak badly of such a wonderful husband and father! I’ve been blessed and I love to tell other’s about it. Thanks for letting me share!

Hi Ladies! I Love this page!! I just want to write a quick note about my husband. We got married on September 15, 2007 (tomorrow is our 2 year anniversary). We bought a house in NH right before our wedding, moving from MA. My husband kept his job in MA. He was driving almost 2 hours to work every day. When we found out we were pregnant in March 2008, he started looking for a job closer to home. I was so proud of him. He wanted to be closer to home, and be sure to get home for dinner with the "family" when the baby arrived. Well, he found a job right down the road from us, and he was so excited. He was doing great!! We had our daughter, Shannon, in November of 2008. Then the economy crashed and my husband was laid off in January...seriously. We lost our health insurance, almost lost our house, and spent all of our savings. It was really hard on all of us. Luckily, the baby had health care, but we just went without. My husband spent every waking minute looking for a job, while getting up with the baby so I could rest, since the birth was very tough on me. He was amazing!!! He was so tired. He finally found a bartending job near our house, but no benefits came with it. So he continued to look. He considered doing ANYTHING to help the family. I started back to work in January 2009. A guy I work with also works for FedEx and said they were hiring. So my husband checked it out. He just got hired in August of this year. I am so very proud of him. It's not his ideal job, but he took it and got his foot in the door. He already is looking within the company to see if there are management opportunities. He gets FULL benefits, including 401(k) and a pension. He never stopped looking for work, and yet continued to help out around the house, take care of the baby, and take care of me. I am very honored to be his wife, and I look forward to spending the rest of my life with him. He is an outstanding father, and tomorrow, on our anniversary, I will be sure to let him know that. Thanks for listening ladies!!!

Lynn, I just wanted to say thank you for starting this group! I was so stunned when I saw the name of it, I had to read it twice more just to be sure! I love my husband and I'm proud of him and I'm proud of our life together. We met later in life, each of us having been married once before. I am so grateful that we did, sometimes I just want to yell it from the rooftops!
It's very hard to listen to people complain about their husbands so I thank you very much for a positive outlet for those of us lucky enough to have wonderful husbands!

Why is it that people get mad at me when i dont let them break the rules.And then they message me and tell me how wrong I am. I did not force anyone to join this site. And I put the guide lines right up front. Gosh.... anyway. For all of you that ARE married and for all of you who ARE bragging Welcome!

And to those of you who are almost married and those of you who wish to nag...I understand no marriage is perfect. And i realize not everyone believes in Marriage being a necessity. And I know some people feel better after venting about what their husband has done to upset them. But this site is for MARRIED women who want to brag about their WONDERFUL husband. So if you have complaints about your husband, please dont bring them here. Lets just talk about the good things. .

Thanks for putting up a site where we can brag about our husbands. I told Mel about it and he was speechless, he's a very quiet guy, and keeps to himself, he's not a social butterfly and when I tell him normally how I brag to my friends about him he feels i'm showing off, but I'm not , I just like to mention to my friends what a wonderful husband he is, but of course he doesn't see it that way, but when I told him about this site, he was speechless, but was ok about it because he says nobody knows him. i told him I just wanted the whole world to know that I am totally happy and in love I am with him. I also wanted to say how much I love this site and enjoy reading what everyday moms go through. thanx 4 putting up such an inspiring amazing site.Crissy from Guam

Hi! Im happy to know that there's a group that shares the same feelings for their hubbies. Im so proud of my husband although he's not perfect for everybody, he's perfect for me and my twins. Even if he's working, he takes good care of me and our twins, he cooks, do the laundry whenever Im sick, feeds and bathes our twins. He never forgets to say "I love you" and kiss me and the twins everyday. He's so wonderful and loving! Thanks to the group because I was able to brag about my husband.

Thank you for inviting me; we've been married since 1965 and even after so many years, I'm still learning about him. I just found out recently that when we are eating steak, my precious man always makes sure his steak is facing away from me so I don't have to see the "bblood". Who'd have thought of such a thing? I was amazed.

We are all truely blessed to be married to the most wonderful men in the world!

I wanted to let everyone know what my husband did for me when I had my last child 4 months ago. I know you guys don't personally know him, but at lest you could know that there are still GREAT husbands out there. I had my daughter at 32 weeks due to pre-eclampsia so I had an emergency c-section. My husband was by my side the whole time. Once I recovered he went home to feed our children and then would come back to be with me. This happened for a whole week since I had complications I had to stay in a few days longer. Every day he would stay the night with me even though the couch was uncomfortable, but he stood because he knew I did not like to stay by myself, then he would wake up go home feed our other two children get them ready for school and take them. Then he would come back and be with me until they got out. When they got out he would pick them up, feed them, help them with their homework then come back to the hospital to be with me. Every day he would do this, he didn't have to do this every day since the kids were with my mother-in-law, but this just goes to show what a great father and husband he is, not once did he neglect me nor our children. Once home I had to be on medication, and him being like my nurse, would wake up to give me my medication at the times needed. I just thank God for him because most husbands would not have taken so much time off of their jobs (without pay) to attend their wife and children.

Hi Ladies,

I too am new to the Circle of Moms and this group. I am impressed with how wonderful your posts are about your wonderful husbands. I too have a wonderful husband, and we've been married for 24 years! Joe and I have been through so much in the 26 years we've been together and we still feel like newlyweds. We have 2 sons, William is 22 and in the Navy and Kevin is 15 and a special-needs child. Joe was put on permanent disability last year because of back injuries and is Mr. Mom now while I work. He keeps everything moving along at home and still manages to treat me like a queen. I've always said I married a saint, but now I know he's my very own angel. I look forward to reading more posts about great husbands. Have a great week!

I'm happy to have found this site. I am on my 3rd marriage and I am sure I finally got it right! My husband is absolutely fantastic and treats me like a princess. He spoils me rotten and loves me for who I am regardless of anything else. We just celebrated our 2nd anniversary so we are still newlyweds. I can't tell you how happy he makes me. He is a true gem!!

My hubands name is Ronnie, his nickname is Bear (supposedly because he gives big bear hugs but I think it's becuase he is a cuddly bear). Ronnie and I met when I had left a domestic violent marriage with my 4 children. It's very difficult being a single mum of 4 children under the age of 10 and after constantly being told you are unattractive, have a terrible personality and your body is no good to find a fantastic, wonderful man who loves you for all your good things as well as your flaws. Ronnie and I are coming up for our 12th wedding anniversary and it definitely hasn't all been easy, step-children for both of us has caused problems at times, a death of one of my children caused a lot of heartache but Ronnie has always been there, picking up the pieces or just feeding me chocolate to make me feel better. I couldn't have asked for a beter life partner. He's stuck with me forever.

My husband, Mark, is a truly wonderful man! In the years, before we got married, he has been both father and mother to our eldest daughter. He took classes to learn how to be mother. He handled all the doctor stuff and special education needs. He is the most loving and caring man I have ever met. Both of our girls know how much Daddy loves them.

I am new to Circle of Moms as well. This being my first day! And I found ya'll! This is a wonderful page! I agree that there are too many women out there that have nothing positive to say about their husbands but mine is my best friend and I could never say anything negative about him. (okay, maybe a little exaggerated). But I love him so much and there is nothing we cannot get past. Like I said, he is my best friend! We will have our 5 year wedding anniversary in Sept. and have been together for 8 years in Nov. and we have a beautiful 2 year old little girl. I am trully blessed!!!

I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful man by my side to call my husband, we have been married now for almost 4 yrs, our anniversary is coming up on Sept 24th, and he is taking me to Niagara Falls for the weekend. We have a 7 month old daughter, and he has been wonderful to help me out around the house, he gets home from work, does some laundry and washes the dishes every night, I couldn't ask for anything more, I really don't know what I've done to deserve such an amazing guy!!

Thank you, Lynn. My husband is truly the greatest. He will drive across the country non-stop just to get home to me and his child and when he gets home after being exhausted still finds the time to stay awake to play with his new little boy and help with anything I haven't been able to do while he was out over the road. I love him so much and am so appreciative of everything he does for his family. The sacrifices are so hard at times, but somehow my hubby makes everything seem so easy. When he leaves to go back out over the road, I can see the struggle in his eyes and it is so hard for me to "act" strong and supportive. But I do it for him because I know he would do it for me. I love my hard-working, loving and supportive hubby. Thank you for all you do!

Aren't we all lucky that we have such wonderful men in our lives??? My husband and I met when we were about 15, and we absolutely could NOT stand each other! We had mutual friends so ran into each other often. It wasn't until we were 21 and met up after 6 years apart that we fell completely in love! We were engaged 7 months after we started dating and married 11 months after our engagement. It has been 3 wonderful years and we just had our son, Micah, 11 weeks ago. My husband works away from home (he's a miner) and when he comes home from working 14 days straight, 12 hour days, he is eager to take over baby and house duties to give me a break! I love my husband and I am thankful every day for the amazing man that he is. I hope that our son grows up to be just like his daddy, because then I will be the luckiest woman in the world!

This is a great idea...having a place where women can brag about their husbands. My husband is the best!!! We've been married for 12 years and he still treats me like a queen. We have 3 wonderful children and he is a great dad to them. I am very grateful to be married to someone who understands me and loves me for who I am.

Hello, I am new to circle of moms and just wanted to say that this group is great. I agree with the other moms that posted that finding women who brag about there husband is rare and it is nice to see that there are a lot of us of there.

My husband and I have been together for 7 years married 3 and we have a 6 month old baby girl. He works deep nights and a part time job (we are following Financial Peace with Dave Ramsey) I work from home and well have the full time job of mommy. Every morning my husband thanks me for letting him sleep because I am up most of the night and day with our little Grayce.....There are many other things that he does that I cherish and know that not all men think they way he does....I love his appreciation not only for me but also for his love of life.

I love to brag about my husband and it sort of shuts the ladies mouths when they are putting their husbands down and you proudly say my husband is wonderful. I take every chance that I get to say how proud I am of my husband but it wasn't always this way. I was taking after my mother (who sort of has something against all men - even my dad). I grew up with her putting him down. So, one day while over at my mom and dad's my mom was saying things against Sam, my husband, and unknowingly, out of habit, I had inadvertantly agreed with my mother. On our ride home my husband sat in silence - I asked him what was wrong and he said "nothing". After some time of going back and forth he finally explained the situation that had occurred and how it made him feel. I really had no idea what I had done until he told me. So, since that day I defend my husband to my mother and make sure that she and everyone else that I can speak to knows how wonderful my husband of 11 years and father of our 4 wonderful children is!!!

My husband is wonderful we met in the pub round mutual friends. We were friends for a year or so before we finally got together but it was certainly worth the wait. Paul (my husband) is my best friend my soul mate. I am a stay at home mum and paul works all the hours he can so that myself and our 2 daughters can have pretty much everything we need, He works so hard and never buts himself first. Paul is a brilliant dad to and always helps out around the house and does everything with me todo with our girls to me he is one in a million and i love him more than anything x
