I guess I'm feeling a little guilty starting the "venting" thread. These are the reasons why I put up with DH idiosyncrasies: He takes care of me when I'm sick He puts a roof over my head and food on the table He loves animals He takes me out on "dates" (restaurants, movies, shopping) He always makes my birthday/valentines day, anniversary special He likes to hold my hand while we're falling asleep He puts up (and often financially supports) my purse/shoe fetish He likes to buy me clothes (even though sometimes our tastes differ!) He's a snappy dresser (has a killer shoe collection himself!) He's a talented performer/songwriter He leaves me little notes all over the house for me to come home to He supports my career decisions He loves to ski He makes me laugh okay ladies. your turn. they're all worth every thing they put us through!
