Recently, I’ve been on a writing spree of posts celebrating my wife. To me it just seems natural for a man to celebrate how much he loves his wife, how attracted he is to her, and how much better she has made his life. But, apparently not, based on feedback I received from some readers of my posts.
One particular post I wrote was based on a (scientific) survey that having an attractive wife makes a man’s life better. My post, written for another site, was titled, “A Hot Wife, A Better Life? New Survey Says YES!” In my post, I went on to cite the survey, and share reasons why men might feel marrying somebody attractive makes life better.
In summary, the post was a collection of some of my recent favorite photos of my wife. It was my way of praising my wife (publicly), and sharing just how daggone fine I think she is. My praise of her focused on the physical, but it included the fact that I think she is a beautiful person (inside) as well.
I thought it would be received well, until I read the Facebook feed of a friend who shared my post. The friends of this friend bashed my post, and me, while my friend defended the post. After I read the comments and shared some kind words with them (smile), I got to thinking. If this post was written by a woman about how fine she thought her man was, would there have been any complaints? There may have even been praise, cosigning, and high-fiving in the Facebook feed!
I’m not sure, but what I am sure of is that there can be more public examples of how men love their wives, and think they are the greatest things that have happened to them. I can dig that, and I’m not afraid to be part of the group of men leading this push. So, in my “wife praising writing spree,” I decided to share some wife praise here on BMWK. Below are 5 reasons finding a wife is a good thing.
BMWK – Husbands, how has finding your wife been a good thing? Ladies, how are you his good thing?
