Real Couple Wednesday (Ryan and Mindy)
This Wednesday, I had the rare occasion when a husband decided to answer my questions. He is a friend of mine for some time now. His relationship is very long lived and full filled. I am very grateful that Ryan decided to be the first man to answer the questions. I am hoping that more husbands will step up and be willing to share their insights in their relationships. Ryan and Mindy have been together for a very long time, and have a little baby boy. Thank you Ryan for being part of Real Couple Wednesday.
Tell me about yourself (age, martial status)
I am 28 and have been married for about a year and a half.
How did he propose?
The way I proposed was wrapping a ring around a stuffed horse. (She hates horses and I thought this would change her mind about them)
Our wedding was perfect except for the pasture showing up 5 mins before the ceremony and left immediately after.
What do you fight about the most?
On the rare occasions we do fight it is usually about stupid stuff like money or one of us forgetting to do a chore.
Do you have a lot in common?
As far having things in common, we don't have a whole lot but that just means we each try new things.
How often do you have sex? do you have the same sex drive?
Our sex life has gone down some since having the baby but we do still have an active sex life I would say about once or twice a week.
What has been the hardest part of your marriage? the easiest?
The hardest part of the marriage would be raising our son; it had been just us for so long that when we added a new life we had to change just about everything we did. The easiest would be reaching a decision about things. We always sit down, talk about all the options, and decide what is best for us all as a family.
How many serious relationships were you in before?
I would say as far as "serious" relationships go, this is probably my first.
