  • You guys dated for years before he finally proposed
  • And you two were engaged for a year while your parents planned a massive Southern wedding
  • Neither of you liked the idea of a big wedding, though
  • So the day before the actual wedding
  • He contacted the officiant
  • And the two of you got secretly married at your local church in the middle of the night
  • With only Snafu there to witness it
  • And then the next day
  • You did the gigantic ceremony and had a reception filled with people you barely knew
  • And then went off to your honeymoon in the Florida Keys.
  • He is such a loving husband
  • Who makes sure to get you flowers whenever he’s away from you for a while
  • And he loves getting you jewelry
  • And presents in general
  • Basically he spoils you
  • And treats you like his queen.
  • The two of you rarely ever fight
  • And when you do
  • It’s usually over something small and stupid
  • And you make up within an hour.
  • Sometimes you won’t be able to find him in the house
  • Because he’ll be sitting on the front porch
  • With a lost look in his eyes
  • So you make the two of you some iced tea
  • And walk out
  • Sitting down next to him
  • And setting down the glasses
  • Which usually knocks him out of his trance
  • And he’ll look over at you
  • With so much love in his eyes
  • Because he knows that you’re the only person that could help him with this
  • And he adores you for that.
