We have been married for 17 years and up to this very day we still share the same ‘likes’ and ‘dislikes’.

Nothing much has change except that we both grow lots of grey hair and looks a little older, too. But those physical changes are inevitable, what is important is that we never get tired of loving and caring for each other no matter how many years (and marital conflicts) go by.

I’m re-sharing this sweet meme for couples from way back 2010.

Our Dislikes

  • We don’t like crowded room/area, thus we’re not fond of attending big gatherings unless demanded by our respective jobs.
  • We don’t like loud people. But hubby managed to live with a nagging wife, just kidding.
  • We don’t like smokers and rowdy neighbors (both present in the billiard shop operated by our neighbor).
  • We are allergic to unexpected expenses…
  • He likes to read (Internet, newspaper) while I have yet to find time to finish the book that I started reading last summer.
  • He was kind of nagging me before because I spend more time in front of the computer, but when we started shopping online using the money I earned from blogging, he is thinking of helping me write my pending assignments. Am I seeing a future blogger in my husband? Not bad.

We agree on so many things

  • We both like to dine out especially when I was still working; we love spicy food.
  • We enjoy watching movies then, now we find comfort in watching DVDs at home.
  • We used to like shopping for clothes when we have extra cash. It’s difficult to kick the old habit, but we manage to satisfy our cravings for clothes at Ukay-Ukay or bargain shops.
  • We both like a small family. We are like supporting a two-child policy (if there will be).
  • We enjoy holding hands before we go to sleep. We enjoy it as much when we are riding a bus while taking a cat nap on our way to work.
  • He is goal-oriented while I’m a little laid-back. But we share the same dream of having a comfortable life. By that we mean living a debt-free life and have something in our pocket in times of need.
  • We are both looking forward to spending the next 17 or more years of our lives together as husband and wife. It’s our wedding anniversary today!

Happy Anniversary, hon! I love You forever and beyond…

Did I end up with Mr. Right?

Rodliz’s Nest

I think I am! He is the same reserved but funny guy that I met from day one. He is not the mushy type but he knows how to make me feel special. He cares without you knowing it. No dull moments with him because he talks with sense and never a show off. He is responsible in every aspect of our married life. In times when I feel like giving up on a certain problem, he reassures that everything will be fine. He is a shoulder to cry on and understands my shortcomings….I could go on telling more good things about him…but for now it’s enough that he knows that I made the right and smart decision of marrying him 14 years ago.
