What’s the best thing you like about your marriage mate or your significant other? No one is perfect, we all know that. But, we can be attracted to someone for many different reasons. For me, I was attracted to the boy who became my husband by the fact that he knew how to dance really well. He was also very good looking. I stayed attracted to him for those two reasons, but I also learned to appreciate many other things that I liked about him. For one thing, he was very spontaneous. He didn’t like to plan things out. He just liked to decide one day and do it the next day when it came to so many things. Vacations were always on the spur of the moment and sometimes he would come home and say, “Get ready, we’re going out…” I never knew what to expect, but we always had a good time. He also had the idea that he could do anything. It didn’t matter if he had never tried it before, he would try it now. That involved cutting down trees, laying concrete, repairing the car, putting on a new roof. It didn’t matter what it was. And he was right! He COULD do it. Actually, all of my children are the same way. They will attempt anything, just like him. What about you?

Sounds wonderful to me. Anytime someone can make you feel "super special" it has to be a good thing.

I go more for good personality traits, like strong and decent behaviors and building the other partner up, no planned betrayals etc

Good reasons ALL. I especially like "building the other partner up." Instead of the opposite, tearing someone down all the time.

That is a really really tough one. I have known him for 12 years and love him for tons and tons of reasons. His voice was the first thing that first attracted me to him, but we always have lots of fun together, enjoy doing just about anything together, and never get bored of each other's company. We can be silly together and have a hearty laugh, even have fun playing goofy pranks on our friends, harmless but fun. Sometimes we'll even wind each other up just for a laugh. He's not scared off by the fact that I have a 5-year-old from a previous marriage, the wedding which he himself attended as a close friend. He's getting a big promotion next year, lol.

Sounds like a really nice relationship. Fun together sounds like a good reason.

This is tough. I have only been married 2 years, in this 2 years, l have learned that hubby is gentle and we can always have a goo laugh,he always make me laugh. For now that`s the most l can say, for the future................long breath, I'm not even sure l trust him,he`S changed a lot since we married( not for the better) At 44, am not looking to be in another relationship EVER should this breakup,so I'm staying with my eyes open,enjoying the moment and waiting for the day he will walk away.Or for the day l will trust he will not walk away.

I hope it all works out for you. Staying married takes a lot of kindness and forgiving. Don't give up too soon.

@miniam I found that when I went out of my way to be kind and thoughtful towards my husband, he was more loving towards me.

Funny... the same thing that attracted you to your husband is what attracted me to mine. My husband is a former Canadian championship step dancer (actually, he won a competition last year so still a champ) and I first set eyes on him performing at one of our dances in this town. I still love watching him dance. And he's pretty easy on the eyes too. There have been a lot of negatives but he has improved along the way. But I'm still a sucker for his dancing.

Funny - yes, How about that? I love to dance and he loved to dance and we danced together for many years. We went from the jitterbug in the late 50s and updated our steps to the disco beat in the 70s and learned everything else in between.

Lol... when I met him, it was his accent lol. Over the years he began to show other traits that made me glad that I married him. The most recent is the way he interacts with his granddaughter!!

So, what kind of accent does he have?

I think probably the single thing is that he's easy going. He has a great sense of humor. He likes going places and trying new things. He's gentle, plays with the cat even though he's allergic to him. He loves to tinker. He also plans ahead. And you wouldn't know it to look at him, but he's a great cuddler.

That fact that he has always been here for me in situations that a lot of people would have just walked away. He has always been here for me and my family and I know even if we broke up he would still be there for us. He is also a cutie and very loving and caring.
