Readers Respond: Reason to Marry a Man

Responses: 4


Women dream of finding Mr. Right -- and might have even played out their wedding with a towel for a veil -- from childhood. Although the dream of getting married is shared by many, the reasons for getting married are different for every woman. Many woman talk about how their husbands won their hearts before winning their hand in marriage. What made you marry your husband? How did you know he was the one?

My Man(:

My fiance and I are like the same person, it's amazing. Never in my life have I met someone who shares the same weird sense of humor as I do, likes the same weird stuff as I do, or is as fun/wild/crazy/silly as me. We have that "I'm never gonna grow up" attitude, although we still do adult things such as work etc. (although we always find the time for our favorite video games:) We both knew it was love from the first day, it was amazing. We're both fast talkers, so after spending every day with him, got us to know each other waaay faster. But we already talked about getting married from the first week. I don't recommend people getting engaged/married too soon, but when you're in love, go for it (: We're deeply, passionately, madly in love. We knew from the first day that we were meant for each other, and we wouldn't have it any other way (:

The Greatest Love of All

Initially, my fiance and i were what i would have considered incompatible. We fought anytime we talked to one another, but God had other plans. Over time he proved to be one of the greatest people i know in his capacity to love. His words and actions revealed that he loved me like i had only witnessed through Christ loving me. I had that same romantic butterfly in my heart while with him as when I received the Holy Spirit for the first time. I have the occasional doubt that God doesn't love me and I actually get that same doubt with my future husband, but when he says things it's like God is able to speak through him to me and on the day him and i got engaged it was like every word that came out of his mouth in response to my doubt or insecurities was what God would have said to me. He will never take the place of God in my life, but i can only imagine that when God designed him he designed a man that would love me like He would love me and that is the greatest love of all.

I just knew

The only way that I can describe it is that I just knew. We were friends for a long time, and we were both with other people. And even from then, a part of me knew that I was going to end up with him for the rest of my life. Eventually, we hooked up and have been inseparable since. I couldn't ask for more, I married my best friend.

Reason to Marry a Man

If you feel that they complete you, and when they're gone for even just a couple of minutes you begin to be lonely. You enjoy silly little times together. Both of you are totally faithful. When he talks about plans for the future.. with YOU in it. I married my husband because I knew he was the right one for me. Been dating 5 years, and not saying everything is perfect, but we still are the happiest that we can be around each other. I love him and would never change it for the world. :D
