What kind of relationship do you have?
A few of my mates can’t wait to get out and away from their other half, one of them forgot his wedding anniversary and he was in the dog house for weeks.
I enjoy my wifes company, we laugh and joke all the time, i can count the tiffs on one hand and they lasted all of 5 minutes, we both forgot our 20th wed anniversary and the worlds still turning.
If your not having a good time in a relationship what’s the point.Posted 4 years agostu170Subscriber
5 years with mine. We both work full time. We both do what we want, rarely do I we turn friends down to do things, yet we still have plenty of time for each other. The old cliché of being best friends. But we really are.Posted 4 years ago
Even when we spend months away with work. She is archaeologist, and im RAF, never really find any issues. How the hell some people I know stay with their other halves I dont know.marcus7Member
one of fear on my side…. fear….., nah all good and constantly evolving, not the same as 20 years ago not the same since we had kids but your life changes and you change and what was important becomes less so and things you could never imagine being important become so…Posted 4 years agoads678Subscriber
Been with the missus for 21 years, married 2 years ago. Got 2 kids 5 & 3. My wife has been my best friend for probably 20 of those years. Love all my other mates for other stuff, but theres no one in this world I’d rather be with than Mrs 678.
I’m pretty much a nob head and she puts up with all my rubbish, bless her!Posted 4 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
We’re solid – bombproof, actually – love, respect and like one another.
Loads of minor aggravations on the surface, though. Mainly based around my view of the house – I see it as a giant cave one returns to after a days hunting, to sprawl around as I see fit – occasionally visiting the bike workshop and brewing annex.Posted 4 years ago
She sees it more like an actual house that needs tidying, a new bathroom and top to bottom decorating.GolfChickMember
After crashing in April I realised how much he cared and how much he loved me, spent the next few months until recently taking it out on him, there’s nobody else to take the brunt of it, and generally being resentful that it happened and now I’m fighting to show him I love him that much and I’m worth putting up with.
I think most relationships have tough spots and it’s whether it’s workable and whether the people even want to put that amount of effort in. For me I’ll do anything as can’t imagine being with or going home to anyone else and he makes me very happy, just wish I wasn’t a PITA some times!Posted 4 years agotangMember
My wife is a top of the range ball breaker. However, after 16 years, 3 kids and the odd tough time we make a good team and plenty of love. As said above when the shit hits the fan or I’m somewhere very beautiful she’s the one I want there.Posted 4 years ago
From day 1 we pledged not to be everything to each other, or have unrealistic expectations. One thing we practice is a bit of self responsibility within the marriage. My grandparents are Indian and told me to learn to love, not expect it all there from the beginning. Happily still a student!
Yeah…. can you sort the relationship thing out please emsz? Make a bit of effort, girl! You’ve been slacking on the Hollyoaks updates of late. Its not gone unnoticed. If not, then I’m afraid some of us will be forced into getting a new Lesbian Best Friend to fill us in on their dramas instead. They’re ten a penny round some parts of the north nowadays you know? 😉Posted 4 years agoemszMember
There’s been some action on the dating* front actually. I could go into details but you’d probably be put off your dinner, Hun
* is too strong really, it’s all a bit “with benefits” but things are weird ATM
I’ll update the Hollyoaks thing when it’s not so “car crash”Posted 4 years agocarlosgMember
We have a great relationship ,been together since September 1989 and married since 2002 before this we were just mates/drinking buddies for a couple of years.I’m not suggesting we never argue but it isn’t often and we’re always mates again by the time we get to bed. We did have one rough patch about 16 years ago (which was all my fault) but we worked through it, mrscarlos is my rock and I rely on her more than I would normally admit .I love her to bits and wouldn’t ever change her (sick in a bucket smilie)Posted 4 years agocrankboyMember
A Fab one met her when I was late 30s divorced and not wanting to have another relationship . Now late 40s happily married and a son. Every day I realise how much better my life is for having her in it.
I believe we have had two big rows, one on a romantic break in Paris when I refused to accept a £1 coin would ever land on it’s edge and stay there when tossed. (clue spending two hours in a hotel bathroom repeatedly tossing a £1 coin may prove your point but blows the romance)The other was my insistence that she would be able to Bunny Hop a curb .
We have been through and done a lot together and she made me less weird.Posted 4 years ago13thfloormonkMember
I’m hearing the tick of that infernal biological clock!
In 5 years she wants (in no particular order) – marriage, cars, mortgage, kids.
In 5 years I want – Three weeks trekking in Nepal, 2 weeks trekking in the Rockies, West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island, Fortnight’s cycle touring in Norway, visit to the Alps with the road bikes.
In theory these goals are not mutually exclusive, its just a shame I can’t yet get excited about any of hers.
I do love her in the here and now though, when she’s not talking about saving for deposits…Posted 4 years agoMrs ToastMember
Love my Mr Toast to bits, even though he doesn’t like death metal or Star Wars, and makes fun of my comics. He’s my best friend and proper sexy as well. He’s funny, kind, and incredibly sweet (apart from when he talks about my mother).
He also upgrades, maintains and fixes my bikes and PC. \o/Posted 4 years ago
