Over the past few years, marriage continues to be under attack in America.
This post is not intended to open up a discussion about the legalities of marriage, I am simply taking note of all the things I love about marriage.
If you’re not married, I still think most of these apply to any important relationship in your life.
These are in no particular order and please add to the list in the comments.

  • Companionship
  • Love
  • Laughter
  • Sex
  • Connection
  • Dancing with my wife (and my kids)
  • Shared adventure and dreams
  • Passion
  • Friendship
  • Watching a movie together under a blanket
  • Deep conversations
  • Simple conversations
  • Hearing someone say “I love you”
  • Knowing the little quirks of another human being
  • Co-parenting our children
  • Being authentic
  • All the inside jokes between us
  • Memories of past experiences together
  • Trust
  • Shared values
  • Holding hands
  • Seeing her from across the crowded room
  • Lazy mornings together
  • Shared responsibilities of life
  • Watching football together, or any sports for that matter. (I hit the jackpot with a wife that loves sports)
  • Someone to challenge me to be a better man
  • Seeing her smile
  • Hearing her sing to our kids
  • Silliness together
  • Another driver on road trips
  • Being out of the “dating scene”
  • Entering a room or restaurant together
  • Good make out sessions
  • Long kisses
  • Back rubs
  • Knowing I have a partner to go through life with

What would you add for your marriage?
