I have been married for 4 years this May. Been together with my Wife for 7 years.
On the day of our marriage, I thought the love felt was the best thing I have ever experienced, that it could never be topped - and that "love" was
what "love" was supposed to be, I never questioned it after that.
My Wife and I had gone through tough times, even separating for brief periods, and the odd 'extreme' arguments have surfaced. However in the last
year or so, this has totally changed, and my love for her is much greater than ever before.
I would previously want things 'changed' about her, you know, stupid things, envisioning a perfect partner, hoping it would be better at times,
hoping things would be different.
However after a while I stopped focusing on the negatives about her, and realised the more important positives. The small things, the big things she
does for us, her smile, the friendship we have, the appreciation of her not judging me over my mental and physical 'blemishes'. Slowly, things
started to change. I noticed MORE and MORE positive things about her, the negative crap I was nitpicking started to disappear. I stopped arguing
about 'how many times she vacuumed a week', or how much water she used on the garden. Stop stressing about her watching 'Crap' TV......so instead
I started watching it with her, and began to grow to enjoy it with her, not just for the show but for the fact we were doing things together, and then
talking about them later.
We then started going to the movies again, even eating at restaurants, and just staring into each others eyes. I then started to realise how
beautiful she was!!! She is so goddamn gorgeous, a beauty I never realised, it was a beauty of loving everything about her physically, the quirks
became attractive, it is so awesome to think about it as I write.
Her personality is glowing more than ever, she has matured so much from when I met her, even though she says she hasn't changed!
I enjoy being around her so much, and I love just giving her hugs and kisses for no reason, just walking upto her - and the joy I feel when she
returns it with as much passion, instead of the previous 'not now' attitude.
She's the best thing that has ever happened to me, and has given me the best gift anyone could ever have given someone - a beautiful daughter.
If you ever read this "baby duck"... I love you
PS. I had a talk to her last night, and we have decided to have more children!!!
Thanks for reading what I had to say, I was compelled to write it
