Married Holding Hands

My wife Yvonne and I got to talking about all the little, funny things that remind us of how special our relationship is and that we are both committed to this marriage for a lifetime.

Here are 10 we’ve come up with so far in our own marriage…

Feel free to share your thoughts and how YOU know you are happily married  - feel free to add and share them in the comments section at the bottom of this post.


You know you are happily married when:

  1. You lose count of how many times you say “I Love You” to your spouse in the course of one day.
  2. Your spouse’s “just woken up bed hair” + pajamas = sexy
  3. Halfway down the hallway having just left home and on your way somewhere, you turn back because you forgot to kiss your honey goodbye.
  4. Staying home with a movie and a pizza can be as glamorous and romantic as dining in the finest restaurant in town.
  5. Having a cable and Internet outage can actually be a good thing.
  6. Regardless of the final product and taste, your spouse’s cooking is a very special gourmet delicacy.
  7. Every night feels like you’re having a slumber party with your best friend.
  8. You feel like you always  ”take the good one home” at the end of the night whenever you go to a party or hang out with other people.
  9. You ask your spouse for advice on even the most random things of which neither of you have expertise.
  10. You sing silly songs together that you’ve made up on the spot…

How about you?

What are some other ways in which “you know you are happily married?”

    I know that I am happily married because I can’t wait for him to get home from work everyday, when I know it is time to go get him from work I get butterflies in my stomach like the feeling when you know you are going to see him for the first time because you like him so much you can’t wait to see him.

  3. When I hear a sing/phrase that he would say & I just smile and smile….
    When I haven’t talked to him in like 5 minutes & it seems like 3hours…
    When he comes home from work smelling like his work truck but to me he smells like the cologne I love for him to wear….

    Those are all reasons I know I am happily married, plus there are many many more…
