Occasionally my husband will jokingly remind me that he did have a life before me. I forget sometimes; I forget that he experienced things and tried things and lived a life on his terms and his terms alone, long before I came into the picture. Although I am not aware of all of the ways his life changed after we met, I witnessed firsthand some of the ways his life changed after we became a family. And despite our belief that for both of us, life changed for the better, I’d be lying if I said there aren’t things that I miss about life before marriage. But, I don’t miss them enough to not want to continue our journey as husband and wife. Nevertheless, ever so often, something will cause us to reminisce about life before the ring.
Recently I read an article on Yahoo! Shine that highlighted some of the things husbands missed about being single. Reading the article prompted me to ask my husband some of the things he missed. His response, “I’m not going to answer that question.” It wasn’t a trick question but that’s ok since the article gives 10. And so, without further ado, here are 5 things husbands miss post marriage:
Based on my understanding of the article there are fairly simple ways to give your Mr. what he may be secretly missing (in addition to the ones listed above). It may require a little compromise but it is worth it if it results in him being happy too. For 5 more things husbands miss post marriage visit Yahoo Shine.
What do you think about the list? Would you be willing to make some changes to give your husband what he wants?
