Today is my fourth wedding anniversary.

I was reading an article on MSN the other day by a columnist who was listing off all the things he loved about being married. His article was about why men love being married, and my first question when I read the title was, "Really? They do?" I was a little surprised. And it was a really sweet article, actually, because it was nice to see a man saying these lovely things about his wife and about being married to her.

So of course it got me to thinking, I wonder if my husband is happy being married. Being a part of the institution of it, really, not even necessarily about being married to me. And then of course my mind wanders to whether or not he's happy being married to me.

Because I tend to obsess over things...

So because I just can't help myself and it was on my mind, we sat down on the couch after putting the kids to bed and I just had to ask.

Me: "Honey, do you like being married?"
Him: "Of course I do. Why?"
Me: "No, really, do you like being married? Not just being married to me, but being married?"
Him: "I love being married."
Me: "To me?"
Him: "I wouldn't be married if it wasn't for you."


Four years later and I am still all giddy like a school girl around my husband and my heart still sometimes leaps out of my chest when I think about him. I love being married. But it's true. I wouldn't be married if it weren't for him.

Happy manniversary honey.

  2. Congratulations! Happy 4th Anniversary! I think it's so sweet that you both feel the same way--wouldn't have gotten married if it hadn't been for each other. What a great collage of family memories. ;-)

  3. Yours is a love story that always makes me smile. I've told you that before, I'm sure, but now I have yet another reason. Hope you celebrate doing something special. Love the pics!

    Also, the word verification to post this comment reads "cookerie," which makes me think of cookies, of course, and makes me think that somehow those should be involved in the celebration and that you should maybe send me some, too. ;)
