as bad as your make them out to be?

I see a lot of post about crazy ridiculous things that seem downright unacceptable. I'm kind of in disbelief, but I'd like to hear some sweet htings your DHs do: i.e. mine sometimes makes me breakfast in bed, lets me sleep in, does a chore I planned to do, brings me home something delicious from work. They can't be all bad right? Im getting married this year, so help me keep the faith! lol...GO!!!!

i get sundays until 6pm to do as i want (usually read) he cooks, cleans, handles the kid battles, (the kids know that is my alone time, daddy is on the job) he washes my car when it's dirty, when my knee goes out he does his best to catch me. if i kneel and my knee locks he picks me up. that's just a few things

:) What constitutes a man child to you? I've been in love with my SO since we were 10 years, he's father to both my girls but only my 2nd biologically.

Quoting HouseMa:

I am willing to bet they are.

That's what happens when you get married because you got pregnant, you're desperate for a man to avoid being alone, you had nothing better to do, or you thought you would be able to change him.

As for one sweet thing... I can't pick just one.  He does something for me daily.  Right now it's doing the laundry.  Over the holidays it was letting me sleep in.  When we were at my parent's house he looked at me and said 'okay, I'm lookiing after the kids you're going out...and drove me to where I wanted to go, said 'I don't want you home before 11Pm...and then let me sleep in the next day'.  All of this happens because I married a man...not a man child.

Lately mine has been a giant poop, so its hard to say nice things. But for the sake of honesty I begrudgingly admit he's pretty awesome.

Nope they are not all bad. Mine still surprises me with flowers sometimes. He tells me he loves me mutiple times a day. Lets me sleep in whenever I want and is a pretty good guy.

Mine was great for the 10 years we were together before we had our son. Now he always goes out with his friends and never helps out around the house. He used to be so sweet and now he screams at me all the time. I don't know what happened to him.

They are not all that bad. Some are, but not all. My dh got me sushi for supper because I had mentioned how I'd like to have some. He was listening and did something sweet. That made me very happy. :)

That's right demand your bounty! 

Nope TN born and raised. 

Quoting mich.el.le:

Too true. Never mind, op.  I'm going to make a bitter post now. lol

Are you, curious, from the midwest by chance? 

I don't think I've ever heard anyone from TN say ''arent ya''. That's why I asked. lol

The woman in the avi pic is not me, she is my inspiration.  I am a wife, a mother, and an aspiring trainer and nutritionist. I love seeing people get fit and healthy to lead the lives they are meant to live.

Ive been with mine for 30 yrs. Married 29...30th anniv. this summer. I adore him..and love him more and more the longer we are together.

He does all kinds of things for me...too many to name. But this summer he's taking me on a tropical vacation for our 30th anniversary.

Sometimes he says something that lets me know he was listening when I thought he had tuned me out. He gets a little smug look on his face when I'm surprised.
