I'm man enough to say, marriage is amazing. I get to share my life with my best friend, my partner, the mother of my child. She has my back, and I have hers, always. And no, she doesn't read this forum, so this isn't me just sucking up

Ii dunno if u r married or not....but anyways. I was at 20. I'm now 27. She's due with our first child on Nov 13. We have had really high points mad really low points. So low as in I had moved out. But through all of everything we have been through there is nothing like waking up in the morning to the woman beside u that u love and knowing as she is lying there sleeping and u r going off to work at 6am in the snow and cold, That she loves u too and cherishes every moment with u.

It gives u that motivation to work that much harder, to know that no matter how bad of a day u have that when u go home, she will be there smiling and have a kiss for you. Someone to talk to anything about, and also someone that needs u to talk too. U help each other out when u need, and give and get encouragement when it's needed. Its like waking up knowing that u r the luckiest person alive to be lying their next to ur love.

And no matter what they always have ur back and u always have theirs. I'd sell my jeep and everything I personally own just to know that she would be there forever. It's an amazing thing to have and to be able to share your life with one person that knows everything about u.

There is no object in the world that can do this for you and give h the love and feeling that having another person with u al the time does. And sometimes it isn't great but that's when u have to dig a little deeper, give a little more and remember why u fell in love in the first place. I've had to get counseling. Nothing wrong with that to save a marriage. love doesn't just disappear. U just have to find ur way of showing it more and letting her know how much u love them and u will get that in return.

FreezerJeep,
Great words man, great words !!!
You are a good person, you show a good and noble heart, and you have a great wife, so I am happy for you, you are one of the lucky few.
I am not married, although I have twice.
Some people are lucky, or wise, to find a great companion, who is loyal and fair and dedicated. Some of us, aren`t so lucky ( or wise ).
I am now married to my own life and to my "toys", which are; My Ducati HyperMotard, my Hobie-Cat 16, my two Sons ( my Very Best friends ), my two dogs ( best friends ), my house which I restored myself with four years of hard work, and now my TJ. I hope someday I can find a good girl who is like me, a good person who ask for nothing but respect and fun.
I wish you the very best in life and wish you guys can be together for ever-ever.

Been married for more than 8 years. It's awesome. Love it.

If I had to identify "one good thing," I'd say it's the impact being married has on arguments.

When you're dating, folks can just "walk out." Somebody can declare it over, and it's over. Just like that.

Marriage is a much bigger deal. You can't just leave. It requires legal process and takes years. And we (especially she) have family members that would be absolutely horrified if we got divorced. The older generation of her family are closely-knit immigrants from the Phillipines that are deeply Catholic--divorce to them is scandalous and a sin. And they live just a few minutes from our house and see us all the time.

To me, that dramatically increases the likelihood of cooler heads prevailing in any dispute. No matter what debate we're in, we always know that--somehow--we've got to work it out. We just have to. Nobody's going anywhere.

As counterintuitive as it seems, that's an empowering feeling.

After more than 8 years, I can't even imagine getting divorced. There's definitely stuff about being single that I miss, but I wouldn't trade even if I could.

I am 53 and been married over half my life to the woman and mother of my children. I definetly married up, my wife has put up with all my toys and never complains. I have owned over 20 motorcycles and about the same amount of cars/trucks/suvs and she never gets upset just rolls her eyes and laughts, luckily she enjoys motorcycling and camping etc. I think the most important step in picking a wife is to look at her parents. If they are happily married she will probably be a good wife. My parents have been married almost 60 years and her parents over 50 years both sets still going strong. some will take this wrong but I think in order to have a long happy marriage there needs to be some faith, not saying you have to be over board but going to church once and while does not hurt.

We have been married for 38 years had bad times and great times. Marriage is give and take never take more than you give. We have 1 son that is a wonderful person. After the wife having 2 heart attacks and a stroke you realize how precious they are. I retired yesterday and we will be full time RVing seeing this great country using our JK for off roading.

so long as you "deposit more than you with draw" your good.

My wife is my best freind my soul mate and the mother of my son. She loves God, our Son, my daughter, Jeeps, Boxer dogs, guns and shooting and camping as much as I do, and she darn sure keeps me grounded and OUT of the poor house.

My 1st wife, well not so much. In fact I hear she is in a broom factory test driving...lol

Hey Jeepers I did not expect to hear so many great good stories, I am so very glad a lot of people are having a good time in their M`s, and I am so glad there are still great Ladies who understand our passions and hobbies in the same way we respect theirs. Even more, Ladies like NC Bear`s who even like and enjoy our sports !!!
And Mody, congrats on your Retirement, and the very best wishes for all of you to enjoy it together on Vacation for the rest of your lives !!!!

Good thread. Sometimes when I'm with a bunch of guys it's like they're having a contest to see who has the worst wife... "My ol' lady doesn't cook" "my ol' lady doesn't put out" "mine's lazy" etc, etc. I don't understand guys who would verbally dishonor the woman who they're supposed to love, honor, cherish, and protect.

I guess I am just attracted to the wrong people. Now that I'm jaded I probably don't attract anyone. I would like to experience what others have told, but I don't see that happening.

Whetstone, we all agree on one thing, you are one of the lucky few, most people have a very hard time coping with M. because of their individual situation, not anyone elses. If you find yourself again on that spot, you know, buddies confessing and maybe having a little fun about their case, is just a way of finding support and understanding from their friends. If you don`t like it, is just because like I said, you are one of the lucky few !!! Just respect their individualism and perhaps you can be prepared just in case your life changes from Roses to Guns, like it happens to many people. Is not a bad thing to be honest and share your thoughs with your good friends. Hope you stay lucky forever, I wish that for my sons too.

When you're married to the right person, it's the best thing ever. And it's so easy. But finding the right person is the trick, isn't it? Took me a long time. We were good friends for 8 years before testing the relationship waters, and kicked ourselves afterwards for not doing it sooner. He became a Texas Rangers (which wasn't hard) and Dallas Cowboys (perhaps a lil hard) fan for me, and I became an Arkansas Razorbacks fan for him. He understands me and my Jeep love, and I understand him and his truck (and guns) love.

I would totally throw myself on a bee for him. Totally.

Remembered another good thing about marriage...
She gets up before I do. In the winter, by the time I get up the stove is filled with wood and the house is toasty warm
