If you were to ask what is the most unique thing about our relationship, I would definitely say it’s how we have fun together. We were friends first. It was not a case of love at first sight. If you are a veteran reader here, you will remember The Dorky Looking Guy!
Having been friends first, it gave me a chance to get to know him. We weren’t trying to impress each other as often happens when you are dating. Instead we were each being our goofy, quirky selves, and having fun together.
Here, we have fun together out on the Oregon Coast, after we had started dating.

I like to make my hubby laugh, there is something about his laughter that makes me laugh and we just have a good ol’ time!
I read somewhere once, that laughter is good for you. I know it’s good for our marriage. Just to have fun together is important for our relationship.
What happens when one of us hides, while the unsuspecting other walks around the corner and gets startled? How about the time he put a huge marshmallow in my cereal? Or the time I put sliced cheese in his sandwich but didn’t take the wrapper off? At the end of the day when we are both at home there will usually be a confrontation, a tickle fest, and laughter, which leaves us staring into each others eyes.
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance… Proverbs15:13
A merry heart… that means, even if he left his lunch box on the counter again, and his work shoes are in the bedroom. Don’t let resentment build up. When he is sitting on his bum while you are working, be cheerful!
I have noticed that my attitude, set the atmosphere of our home. When I am able to over look his faults and imperfections, things run smoothly. They may not run quickly or even in the right direction, but they run smoothly. When I am upset and nagging, things grind to a screeching halt.
Our attitudes can make or break our marriage ladies, which one is your attitude doing?
