Friendship in Christian Marriage

1st Monday Every Month at Chrysalis

Signs my husband is also my friend:

  • If anything strange or exciting or surprising happens in my day, he's the first person I think of to tell.
  • We go out to dinner to talk.
  • He listens to me, even when he'd rather be sleeping.
  • We know each other's favorites.
  • Though he'll be home in a few hours, he e-mails me a letter he's working on to get my opinion.
  • We get excited over the successes of the other.
  • Days of coming and going make me miss him, even though we live in the same house.
  • He laughs for me, at me and with me.
  • We buy each other the same movie for Christmas.
  • I love him, but I really like him too.

What makes your husband your friend? See what others had to say in their Marriage Monday posts by visiting e-Mom at Chrysalis.

I had to laugh because n Friday I was shopping at KOHL's,. I called him as soon as I was done shopping to tell him I was able to buy anew pair of pants in a smaller size!(I've been "dieting"). he just laughed and understood. he's the first person I think of when I have a success or a disappointment. I think that's how it was meant to be!

Awesome list.

I absolutely LOVE that list! My favorite is the last one:

I love him, but I really like him too.

I feel that way about my hubby too. He's such a likable, lovable guy and a tremendous blessing to me.

I love your list! I often say marriage is the hardest thing I've ever done but I agree with your list completely!
