    Why did you marry your spouse

    Men & women marry for various reasons.  Some for love/friendship.  Some for companionship.  Some because of culture. Some because the friends are married. Some for sex. Some to have a family. Some for religious reasons. Some for legal reasons.  Some for a combination of these reasons, all of these reason, none of these reasons or some other reason(s).  Tell me why you married your spouse & if you have been faithful to your spouse.  Me, I married my wife because of love & friendship; she is the best friend I have ever had.  We have been faithfully married for 20 years w/3 beautiful children.

    He is my best friend, worries about me, watches over me, and has always been there when I needed him.

    Because she was cute, she was a great cook, and she was willing to put up with my geeky hobbies and other nonsense. I knew I was never going to find another woman like that so I had to marry her! big_smile

      I can relate.  I have a lot of "geeky hobbies" myself.  She sounds like a keeper.

    I married my husband because I fell madly in love with him. Being apart was unthinkable.  We met in August, married in November of 1970.  Still married, still my best friend and the love of my life 43 years and 2 kids later.

    Love, at the time, was the only consideration. We had little income, he worked part time, I had a full time job but a very low income but to be very honest, I did not care--I wanted and needed to be with him...and he felt the same way.

    Yes, we have been faithful.

    My wife was a gift to me from my God...
    After many years of being far from what I should have been religiously, i repented of those ways and found forgiveness from God in the aftermath of that.   One thing that still caused problems in my walk with my God was my Sexuality that was still hindered by old sins and the fact that i was still single and had no logical outlet for those urges other than the sinful paths of the past.  One Night in a moment of confession and Repentance I was given a little bit of faith and a promise.  I knew that the Lord had just made a decision to give me my wife finally... but I had no idea where she was or who she was.  I asked a simple question then... cant you show me her hair color.. or the color of her eyes.. and i did not get an answer but knew that it would not be long before I found out.
    I made up my mind to trust that word... i held it in my heart and waited... under odd circumstances I found myself at a off beaten path church hearing some missionaries from Honduras talk about Missions...  then when Hurricane Mitch hit the country my heart went out to the people in general... i wanted to go on the field but the way was blocked.  Some time later I was in a site online talking to a person in another country about missions....  6 months later that person became my wife... its been almost 15 years now... we are and have been completely monogamous...   we are always together.. we are Best of Friends.  And missions?  Yes... We are missionaries... still on the field.. still serving together...  Our God is Great God and he knows what is best for us.
    He has been Faith-full.  So Faithful.

    I have been married twenty years.  Twenty years sounds like a popular number on this Hub.  My wife is the best thing that ever happened to me.  I think God brought us together, because I cannot think of being with anyone else.  She is always there for me.  She always looks out for me.  She is a great mother to our children.  She is a great wife to me.  The Lord has blessed me.

    I was first attracted to my wife by conversation.  I swear if my life had depended on it I could not have told anyone the next day what my wife-to-be looked like from the neck down.  The first day we met, I could not look away from her eyes and I could not stop listening to anything she said.  We just clicked on everything, and we have not stop clicking twenty-three years later.  She is the love of my life.  My Heaven on Earth.

    I married my spouse because we were in love with each other and we wished to continue it for the rest of our life. Now I think that the love that existed between us has become deeper.

      A lot of marriages seem to start "hot" then cool off quickly a few years into the marriage.  No surprise divorce follows.  I'm happy for you the love "has become deeper."  May it deepen further & further.
