  • I was never looking for a spouse. I just fell in love with my husband.
    The things that attracted me to him was
    his sense of humor,
    the way life bounces off him always in a positive way,
    his determination,
    his sarcastic attitude that a lot of people don't really get,
    and his ambition WITH follow through.

  • I've never had any "requirements" for a spouse... If I loved him & he loved me, I didn't see how anything else even mattered... If he wasn't a good man, I wouldn't love him, so I never saw a reason to itemize...

  • I only had 3 "requirements" for my potential husband:
    Taller than me
    hair shorter than mine
    ass smaller than mine
    Not meeting any of these things would have been too damaging to my fragile feminine ego

    I got 2 out of 3 (we're pretty much the same height)
