Marriage Smarriage

The paper I work for is having a bride and groom competition and I was part of the team interviewing the finalists. Interviewing the couples made me think about my own marriage and I decided to interview my husband and myself, just for fun.
(was really tempted to change Robin’s answers to suit me, but I left them)

MY ANSWERS:

What do you do? ie job 

I’m a lifestyle journalist
How did you meet? 
His cousin introduced us. He was in army when we first “met” and we spend first months of “dating” chatting online, mxit fb that sort of thing
 
How long did it take you to decide that you wanted to spend your lives together? 
He practically asked me after our first date, it took me a bit longer to be sure *blush* – sorry, but it’s true
 
What do you most love about your spouse? 
He has this childlike way of looking at things, everything is new and exciting through his eyes. Also he has the most stunning green eyes (was into brown eyes untill I met him)
 
What is her/his worst feature? 
He is DEADLY, ANNOYINGLY shy and sometimes I wish he would let more people see the fun loving side of him

What makes a happy marriage? 
Compromise, I was stilettos and sushi and he was sandals and braais, but compromise means we tried different things and grew as people.
 
What has been your biggest challenge thus far in being married? 
Living apart as much as we have, we dated when he was in army (stationed away from home) when we got married he was an industrial fireman and our work schedules meant we saw each other every second week then he joined police force and is currently still away, will finally be home next Friday  πŸ™‚
 
Any thoughts you would like to share ?
 I had my share of kissing frogs, but looking back it was all worth it because it led me to my prince — so corny I know!
