17 Things I Love About My Husband

I want to honor my better half as we celebrate our wedding anniversary. Allow me to share 17 things I love about my husband. 17 reasons why I'm thankful to have him as my life partner.

17 Things I Love About My Husband

1. He is patient.

From deciding on everything by myself to sharing my life with someone, marriage is a big adjustment.

Our cultural differences also make it difficult for us to understand each other sometimes.

Despite our contrasting personalities and shortcomings, my husband is patient with me. 

I love that about him.

2. He's responsible. 

My husband sees to it that I don't have to worry about things around the house. 

From fixing a leak to running errands, he makes sure we are comfortable. He takes care and provides for our needs. 

I love that he has the initiative to take out the trash without being asked. 

He doesn't put off until later what needs to be done at the moment.

3. He makes me laugh. 

I love it when he does silly things to give me a little break from working. 

He shares amusing stories to help keep my stress level down.

4. He's smart. 

He thinks like an engineer, he's math-savvy, inquisitive, methodical, systematic. 

My husband is perceptive, thorough, logical, and analytical.

He's an eloquent speaker and I couldn't be prouder.

5. He's loyal. 

When my husband finds a good restaurant, we keep going back to that place, order the same food, and even sit at the same table whenever possible. 

He asks for the same hairstylist, masseuse, and driver every time he needs their service.

Most of all, he is loyal to me. 

6. He makes me feel at peace.

Because I know that no matter what happens he will take care of me, fight for our relationship and he will never hurt me intentionally, I am at peace.

I know how it is to be in a relationship where you're unsure of your partner's loyalty. Or when there's always a conflict to work on.

You're always on edge. 

I appreciate not having to worry about these things anymore.

7. He is thoughtful.

No matter how busy he gets, my husband always thinks about me and my needs. 

He knows that my language of love is gifts so he sees to it that I receive a gift even if it's just a flower he's picked on his way home.

8. He puts Christ first.

When I was single, I heard someone say, "Find a man who puts God first and you, second. He will not look for a third."

I don't mind being my husband's second priority as long as God is his first. 

As it is, marriage is a covenant between you, God, and your partner. 

9. He wants me to take care of myself.

My husband always reminds me to pamper myself

He's also willing and eager to wait while I get my hair and nails done.

I love that when I shop, he doesn't just follow me around. I can ask for his opinion and I know that he'll give me honest feedback and good suggestions.

10. He's humble. 

Our marriage is not perfect but he's willing to change his ways to be better.

Being the leader in our relationship, he's humble enough to apologize first - even when sometimes I'm at fault. 😛

11. He's romantic.

My husband is the most loving, most caring, and most romantic partner I know. 

He can make me feel special and loved even at the most ordinary of times. 

He makes me feel like I'm the most beautiful woman in the world even when I don't feel like I'm at my best.

12. He's selfless.

He puts my needs and comfort first before his. I am included in all his dreams and plans.

13. He's clean.

My husband takes hygiene seriously. He smells fresh and is always clean. 

We don't have a messy house; he cleans up the kitchen even before eating (unlike me, I wait until we're done before I wash the dishes), and most of all, we always sleep with clean sheets

I can't imagine living with a sloppy person. I'm glad my husband isn't one.

15. He has no vices.

My husband doesn't smoke and has not had alcohol for a decade now. He doesn't gamble, and he has no bad habits.

He loves watching movies so much that I could say that's his only "vice" but I get to binge-watch with him sometimes so all good.
16. He's the best travel companion ever.

I love that I've found the best travel planner and partner I could ever ask for. 

From making sure we get the best deal without compromising our comfort and safety, to planning our itinerary, to packing our travel needs, he's on top of things.

On the day of the trip, from waking me up (forcing me out of bed really lol), preparing our breakfast and bags, securing our house, carrying my luggage, and ensuring that we enjoy the trip, I can rely on him.

Can't wait to travel with him again.

17. He's a wonderful life companion. 

There are days when I need my space and he respects that. 

We can sit in silence comfortably or talk endlessly ---mostly depending on my mood. 😁

My husband and I couldn't be more different. 

I can multitask but he needs to focus on one thing. As all men do, I think.

I'm 99% introverted (according to the personality test we took) and he's a full-blown extrovert.

Yet I know we can turn our differences into delight.

I prayed for a good partner and God has given me more than what I asked for. 

My husband is another reason why I love my life and why I consider myself blessed.

I do like to say that I love my husband because he could be my best friend, most trusted confidant, most supportive cheerleader, and worst critic at the same time.

There are many things I love about my husband and I'm excited to discover more in the coming years.

Happy anniversary, Honey! 😘

Wait! I've got more stories for you...

  1. Hi, Lux!

    Thank you so very much for reaching out to me today, across the miles and across the years, to reconnect at my new site Shady's Place Music & Memories.

    Happy anniversary to you and your husband! As I read your list of 17 things you love about your spouse, it occurred to me that he is a rare find. You can consider yourself very lucky to have found a good man like him, and he is lucky to have found a high quality woman like you. It impresses me that he has a sense of humor, is thoughtful and caring, humble, clean and free of vices. I gave up drinking, smoking and drugging before I married Mrs. Shady because, having come from a troubled previous marriage, she deserved a mate who is the best person that he can be.

    I read your previous post. Mrs. Shady and I are watching S-4 of Mrs. Maisel. She is watching Bridgerton and we both enjoy Marvel TV series. We have watched Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.

    Thank you again for reconnecting with me after all these years, dear friend Lux. I wish you and your family all the best throughout 2022!

  2. Happy Anniversary! What a beautiful snapshot!
