FP - elegant, sweet and thoughtful. I expect nothing less.

I really enjoy a peek into other people's marriages. PF and I have been together so long that I tend to forget that everyone doesn't make it work in quite the same way we do, but that success and happiness take many forms.

For me it is more about choosing to see PF as "lover" and not just "husband/father/partner/provider". We get busy. Its been more than 20 years. His travel schedule requires both of us to be proficient without seeing each other every day. But I don't want to be complete without him.

Deliberately choosing to look at him as "my guy" reminds me that we will be together long after the kids are gone, after the jobs end, after this house and its nonsense are a memory. I want to fall into his kisses for the rest of my life.

Oh, that's so sweet, JM.

I wouldn't say this most recent post represents how I feel all the time. Our marriage is very ebb-and-flow. Sometimes we're close as two teenagers on a locker, sometimes we're in our separate corners. We're happy, overall, and in it for the long haul for sure. But it's not all romance all the time.
