Email of the Day: I Knew He Was a Keeper

Email of the Day: I Knew He Was a Keeper

I’ve been married for three years, and have been honored to be called my husband’s girlfriend, fiancée, wife and someday mommy to his children. When we first dated, I told him I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom and homeschool any future children we might have. This was a complete shock to him. I was the only person he knew who ever had this goal, let alone had been raised that way. On his own, he did research, comparing the pros and cons, and came back to me completely on fire for the ENTIRE goal.


Since then, he got into a police academy in a state we want to move to. We’ve been living apart for nine months because we wanted to be sure that everything would work out with the department and training before I quit my financially secure job. It’s all going well, so I’ll be moving out there once he graduates.


He has stood up to his family and friends defending our very unpopular desired lifestyle of me being a stay-at-home mom, and he’s done whatever it takes to be able to provide for me and our future family. I couldn’t be prouder of him! I knew he was the one when I asked if he’d swim through shark-infested waters to bring me a lemonade. His response was “would you like it flavored or regular?”
