I know, I know…often times in love and with being in love with someone there comes sacrifice. However I had no CLUE I’d have to sacrifice so many things when I got married and moved in with my wife. I knew about the love, dedication, commitment and support… but some things have just gone too far! No one told me I’d have to give up so many things…things that I had always been able to call my own. Follow me!

BMWK Fam what are some things you had to give up when you moved in together?

My Plate!

Picture 1 of 6

We've all been there....starving after a long day of work. So of course I go in the kitchen and fix a nice hefty plate! Maybe a little chicken, macaroni and cheese or maybe some good old spaghetti! I get a beer, say my grace and get ready to dig in! Before I can open my eyes my wife has a fork in her hand saying "let me taste a little piece," as she smiles and doesn’t bother to wait for an answer. APPETITE RUINED! If it's one thing men don't like to give away or have violated it’s our food! However, because we love you we take a deep breath and (reluctantly) say "HERE," even though you are already eating anyway. Secretly we know that the oh so special first bite of our food given away kills our excitement and we just get over it. Just don't come back for seconds!

    This article was hilarious. I could have just stopped at number one, because that’s me all the way. However, I know my husband would agree that he has not had to give up the other 4 (although #1 is probably the most important). I always say his food just tastes better. 🙂 Prayerfully he agrees, it’s all worth it in the end.

    Haha… Mercy me! Well,as for all the points,my brothers suffered terribly! I’m their only sister,they were glad to have me in their bachelor homes but were usually happier when I left! I hated their scents. Changed them and they wailed. 🙂

    As for my hubby,when we move in together… I now know the points to tickle him with till he cries! Yoo hoo! His brush especially! Hahaha….. 😀

    HILARIOUS! But yeah, those things should go ahead and get included in the vows. Hairbrush, basketball shorts, food on your plate. And God yes, a man’s idea of clean is wayyyy different from ours. Like you said, it’s all worth it.

    I love to borrow my fiancee’s socks and eat from his plate.now i understand why he’s always the 1st to stop eating-he looses his apetite now i know! hahaha cant wait to get married and move in! Oh and he startd buying me my own socks but i still feel his are jus a little bit more warmer n comfortable.guess it makes me feel more connected to him.

It was a pleasure to interview Chris Superville and Shanté Nicole Harris-Superville to discuss autism and marriage. We rarely get to hear about the marriages that are working for autism families. I know some married couples raising children on the spectrum and I know single parents doing the same. It can have its challenges either way. Yet, all of these families are doing their best for their children.

Chris Superville and Shanté Nicole Harris-Superville

Chris Superville and Shanté Nicole Harris-Superville and their son Dylan.

BMWK: How old was your child when he was diagnosed with autism? How old is your child now?

Shanté: Dylan was two when he was diagnosed. He is seven-years old now.

BMWK: Shanté: How old was Dylan when you started dating Chris?

Shanté: Dylan was four-years old when Chris and I began dating.

BMWK: Chris: What was your reaction when you learned that Dylan was on the autism spectrum?

Chris: It was the first time I’d ever heard of the condition. Due to this being my first encounter, it only peaked my curiosity and created a desire to learn about it.

BMWK: Shanté: How did Chris’s reaction impact your relationship?

Shanté: Because he doesn’t have any children, I was skeptical about how he would handle raising a child, let alone, my child with special needs. He accepted him as his own, and accepted the challenge of taking care of him. This definitely grew our relationship stronger.

BMWK: How did you both work through the initial adjustments to make your marriage work?

Shanté: We pretty much played “Follow the Leader.” Chris observed how I handled Dylan and he imitated my actions as closely as possible.

BMWK: What roles have you both assumed in your family when it comes to caring for your son?

Shanté: We assume equal roles. This helps because we both lead extremely busy lives, so sharing responsibilities alleviates many situations that could turn stressful really quickly.
