11. You’re Not Just My Wife, But My Best Friend.
The first thing that attracted you to your future wife was probably her looks -that is usually what captures anyone’s attention first. But if the looks are the only thing a girl has to offer she will quickly be discarded. You kept your wife around because she’s not only the most beautiful person on the planet, but she’s hilarious, and shares common interests as you, and maybe she’s just as weird as you are, too. The list can go on and on.
It takes much more than lust to make a marriage work, and both lust and looks are fleeting. So when you tell your wife she is your best friend, and how much you enjoy her company, it will warm her heart and make her feel appreciated.
