Can't wait to read your posts!
CHILDHOOD EXPECTATIONS OF MARRIAGE!
1. When you were a child what did you imagine YOUR Prince Charming to be like?
Kind, affectionate, and hot.
2. Does you husband match your prediction as a child?
Check, check, & CHECK (ow ow, baby) ;)
3. What about when you were a teenager and knew it all about love, does you relationship match that scenario you had during those rebel years? 
I thought love was all about spending every second together, romance all the time, and dramatic gestures of undying affections... in reality, my marriage and love is more about mutual respect, growing together, and working towards building a life. All of the romance and epic gestures are fine, but they aren't an every day (or every week) occurrence, and that's just fine by me!
4. What love movie would you best match your relationship to? Why?
Hmmm... I hope John and I can be like George and Nina Banks from the Father of the Bride movies. Besides the fact that those movies are straight classic.. I don't think they portray an unrealistic story line of marriage. They screw up, they fight, but they grow together and love each other - keeping that romance alive. 
Had to find a "Franck included" picture :) 

Next week's questions: Your husband as a father/future father:
1. What is/will be your husband's best trait as a father?
2. What is/will be your husband's favorite thing to do with the kids?
3. How does/will your husband help out with the kids?
4. What do you hope your children learn from their dad?

Oh I actually like your movie example a lot! I hate the typical portrayals of love in Hollywood, but that's a good one.

I love that both you and Allie wrote "ow owe!" LOL!

Kristin said...

Best movie ever!! I love Frank! :)

Such a gret movie! I always loved how they kept it real!

Jessica said...

All of your answers are great, but #4 is amazing, love it!!! You make a very good point about them too... they are pretty realistic... they have their problems, but their lives are enriched by undying love and never-ending laughter! I hope we're all as lucky as George and Nina Banks haha!

I know everyone else has already said this, but I agree with the realistic marriage portrayal. That's why I always liked Tim & Jill's marriage on Home Improvement. They loved each other, did nice things for each, screwed up, apologized--it was nice. A lot of shows today just have spouses picking on each other. I know it's to make us laugh, but I just find it a little disturbing (King of Queens is an example).

Pretty sure I could watch Father of the Bride 1000 times a week. I'd love to be like them when Im married :)

Lauren said...
