My husband and I are getting ready to celebrate our 12th aniv. (Oct. 25th). We are best friends and soul mates. When I was about 15 yrs old I found out that I had pre-cancerous cell forming on my uterus, I was then told that I might not ever be able to have children, and that if I did get pregnant that I would have a hard time, especially with delevering the baby.... I was in a previous relationship on and off for about 4 yrs, before my husband and I started hanging out, dating, and then marring. In my previous relationship, we never used protection and I never got pregnant.. After that relationship ended, my husband and I started hanging out and dating.. we were together for about ten months, when his yougner brothers girlfriend wanted me to go to the clinic with her (she was getting a pregnancy test taking), all my life my periods have been very irregular, so when I hadn't started I didn't think anything of it, but on this particular missed period my breast were very tender, so I also took a test.... and found out I was PREGNANT! I was excited, but worried about his reaction... but, that soon evaporated as I walked out into the waiting area, the minute he saw me a smile spread acrossed his face and he said "You're pregnant, right!"... he was just as happy as I was, that is when I believed that we were meant to be together, that it was Gods way of letting me know this was the one(I already thought he was a keeper!)... we now have two beautiful children. He has always supported me, while I was going to college, he was taking care of our kids and home... at the time our kids (who are only 13 months apart) were 3 and 4 yrs old... he would take care of the kids, have most of the chores done and almost always had dinner on the table when I gothome, and when I needed quite time to get my shcool work done, he would take the kids to the park or to visit family. My husband isn't one of those really romantic types, but he always suprises me... one night he came home from work with a card and a dozen peach roses (my favorite rose!) when I asked him what they were for he said "Just because, I wanted to let you know I love and appriciate you." He has done little things like that through out the years, and it is always when I least expecte it... a card or little trinkets here and there... he is an amazing husband and father and because of this our children are very close to both of us. The kids are older now.. 10 and 11... both are in sports, our son plays football (and practices are his and dads time together... he always wants his dad to go and help out.) Our daughter still (even now, going through puberty and preteen stuff) is a daddy's girl, her and daddy like to pick on and joke around with each other all the time! We do alot of things together as a family, from camping, to just taking walks together around town... my husband always takes the time to have one-on-one time with each of the kids... we take turns doing stuff with the kids, he will spend time with our daughter while I spend time with our son, and back and forth... even if it is just spending time with each of them in different rooms of the house, helping out with cooking in the kitchen, or playing a game in the living room.... He is my rock, I can always count on him. He knows how to make me laugh, even when I don't want to! We hardly ever fight, and when we do we can never stay mad at the other for very long... we really do complete each other. I am very lucky to have him in my life... and I let him know it everyday. I am so greatful to be able to count him as one of my many blessings!

Scott and I will be married for 22yrs on Saturday, along the way we have had major "disagreements" but I know he supports me and loves me. Recently I quit my job, the working environment was just to much for me anymore. The way things are now that is not a smart thing to do, but Scott knew how unhappy & stressed I was becoming, he told me that if I felt I needed to do this he would support me and we would worry about the money loss later. I am still unemployed over a month later, money is a little low but Scott is still very supportive telling me things will be ok and I will find a new job soon. Doesn't hurt that my mood has improved A LOT and he is getting some of the benefits of me not being tired from work all the time.

My husband and I have been married for 25 years and dated 3 1/2 years before marrying. I love to read about happy marriages because I hear so many men and women complaining about their husbands. I love him more as roles change. When we became parents, I saw a whole new side to him. He has always treated me very specially and we are grateful for each other. We have four sons, ages 16, 17, 21 and 23. He always helped raise them from day one. Nothing was a "mother's job." We lost some pregnancies and he was so supportive. He brings me roses, one at a time, here and there for no special reason. He once attempted in our early marriage to make sugar cookies from scratch (they were thick as biscuits) an decorated the house with Happy Nothing Day signs. Our two youngest sons have special needs. They both have autism, and the youngest has other problems as well. He is a great dad to them all. I had to quit my high-stress job a year ago, thinking it was just too much and I would find another job less stressful. But instead, I got worse, and was diagnosed finally with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and osteoarthritis in my spine. I can't work; many days I feel like I have the flu. He hasn't complained once about having to do more with the kids or work more. The money is surely a problem, but we take everything a moment at a time. Some information is too personal to share here about his devotion to me, but I know it and it is priceless. We are getting back to newlywed state with the kids in the Army, college, or busy with jobs and high school. The intimacy is wonderful. I feel so lucky to be his co-pilot in our journey. I prayed for someone like him when I was 15. I knew what I wanted, just not whom. I described what I wanted in a boyfriend, and shortly thereafter we began dating. About six months later, it hit me that he was what I had prayed for TO A T! I feel so fortunate and am glad to connect with other wives and moms who have supportive and loving husbands.

Wonderful story. Those surprise gifts are one of the things that I appreciate. My husband does things that he thinks are average, but I think are extraordinary. I was at a conference in Washington, D.C. and I left my cell phone at home. This was an all day conference and it was about a 45 minute drive from home. When I got into my car at the end of the day, my cell phone was on the passenger seat with two sets of directions and a small note that said, "in case there's traffic." I was speechless. He drove from home to my car and then to work, took the time to get directions for alternate routes and never thought it was a big deal. All he knew was the location of the conference, he had to find my car! How can you not appreciate that? He does things like that all the time, and I consider these gifts and he thinks I am crazy when I gush all over him about it!

My husband used to work nights so I had to transport the kids to school in the mornings and now that my husband got his shift switched to daytime hours he without asking just took over my role at transporting the kids to and from school so I could get into the office earlier. The kids dote on him, for good reason, he is the Best Dad and Husband. He's so thoughtful :)

Thank you Allison... and I agree with you... lol! I don't have any complaints in the passion department, I do hope that area in your relationship improves to your liking though.... I know they say that it isn't the only thing that matters in a relationship, but it does help out... ; )

I was smiling throughout your entire post, it is so sweet to hear about relationships that are happy and loving. Mine is great except the passion part. I like you have the moments in time where you have to sit back and look at how wonderful they really are even though at times they are annoying as ever!
