    I love a woman who is strong for me when I am weak. Other than that, it’s just negotiating chores right? Who wants to mow the lawn?

  2. I love this post… I was actually just wondering why I love the one man I have ever loved… I am not with him now… but at 35 years old, I could not pin down why he was the only man I could look back and say… I undoubtedly loved him. You said it so perfectly in this article… he was vulnerable with me… that big strong man trusted me with his vulnerabilities, and I loved him for that.

  3. #1 Cracked me up. I do things like that too. I really believe that you love your husband. Sometimes people give a list of traits they love but not including small antidotes makes it sound like a politicians speech, where they wax glorious about how much they love their country. It’s too polished. Yours was authentic. Great job.

  4. I love this article because it reminds of a previous relationship.

  5. What a great article! If it wasn’t so too-late for both of us, I’d propose to you…

  7. Eeep!

    I made a mistake on the spelling of my blog. It’s http://www.genderratic.com

    Thanks to everyone who responded.

  8. In all sucessfull relationships the two people involved fit like 2 pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. That’s what you seem to have. Good luck and good fortune to you and your husband.

  9. What a nice, tender, warm post. Makes me feel fuzzy! :D
    You two have a beautiful relationship; thank you for sharing what makes it special with us.
    It’s good (and needed) to remind us all the positive stuff there is around us.

    Admittedly, #5 is one of my favourites (though my beau doesn’t fear spiders, I know what it’s like to be designated bug-killer, as that was my job in my dorm at uni :P), but I love that you know when hugs are needed.

    And the act of being vulnerable, the allowing of oneself to be vulnerable.. that is really one of the most courageous things anyone can do. I love that you’ve pinpointed one of the most beautiful things that a person can do for another, and that you love it about your husband.

    I think in this climate of debating between men and women, all too often we don’t focus on the goodness, and we can always use more of it. :)

  11. Damn, you’re married. Another one. All the good ones are married.

    This was a really nice post. It is refreshing to hear people express gratitude and affection, and this post is even one bullet against bitterness in the culture.

    We’d all like to be loved, but with the respect, being desired and admired… it would be hard to not feel loved just from that, and in fact that’s what I’d prefer first. That is feeling loved, to me at least.

    One last thing: just curious, you being from Canada, I was wondering .. well it’s probably too personal. never mind. I have fears too- doctors and nurses. I bear the scar of vulnerability, I just hope it doesn’t diminish any future love bond I may have. You know what I’m saying? Thanks for posting this
