When it comes to marriage, I consider myself rather fortunate that my other half takes my wants and needs into great consideration. It dawned upon me just how much rif understands my love language (time and words) and he always tries his best to fulfill them.
I remember the time he received a good job offer right after we got hitched and that it was going to take up a lot of his time. He turned it down because he chose to make our marriage his priority. Recently, he faced a similar situation where there were two job offers and picked the one which allowed him to spend more time with me. He decided it wasn’t worth taking the other job with higher pay, but leaves him little time with his wife.
Not many guys I know would choose to put their wife/partner before their career. A few of my friends expect their other half to understand and tolerate their absence and long hours, for the sake of “a better future”. While I’m in no position to judge the choices they make, I do sometimes wonder what their idea of a better future is.
What people term as financial stability can mean a luxurious lifestyle for some. And what people view as quality time might seem “suffocating” to someone else. I’m glad rif and I found our balance and I appreciate the fact that I always come first. #countingmyblessings
Thank you rif, for always trying to fulfill my needs and love language. I’ll try my best to do the same for you! :)
