My Wife Rules

My wife rules. She rocks the house. She really is all that, plus a bag of chips. She is one of the few passions I have in this universe that could motivate me to get online and bear my soul to the world. She doesn't need it; she doesn't crave it; but she deserves it. This blog is meant to be an ongoing celebration of the woman who has grown to mean more to me than any other person in the world. Think of it as a tribute to our love, as well as a penance for all the deserving times I should have left her a note or a card or flowers, or even just said "Thank you," but didn't.

This collection of my "Wife Rules," or lessons I have learned over the last ten years from my wife and our marriage together, includes thoughts and stories about her, about me in relation to her, about our family, and about our lives together in general. In addition, each of them mentions some jewel, some precious part of my life or learning that I owe to her; something that I would have missed without my main squeeze in my life. These glittering gems are the common thread that ties all these thoughts and stories together. I hope that by showing them to you, I can paint a broad picture of the richness in my life that I owe to my wife.

To anyone who reads this: as I share my Wife Rules with you, I not only hope to convey to you exactly why my wife is so special, why she is my love, my passion, and my queen, but I also hope to help you contemplate the loves of your lives and the fullness you enjoy because of them. May you feel the same way about them, as I feel about her.

Let the roast begin.

I am going through a situation with my wife. I looke on line for answers and ran across your page. I don't know how much it will help her, but it helped me realize that I have so much love to give and I will always have a place in my heart for her. The rules you have written down should be followed to a T.
You, in so many ways, are so much like me. Thought word and in deed. For the past few years I have dedicated time each and every day to help somebody. Each day I am one step closer to becoming a whole person. It's good to see there are more people out there that know they can save the world one person and one day at a time.
