That's the reason you're here anyway, right?
So my husband and I are working on year 6 of marriage. Things are good but here’s the thing from my perspective as WIFE. I had a legit epiphany. When we married I was 23 and full of life. Two years later, we had a baby, experienced some deaths in the family and financial struggles. So I started sacrificing my self-care time. After a while, you just get comfortable and let life kind of pass you by.
So on social media, I’ve noticed that women change COMPLETELY after a break-up. “Change” is not even the word; it’s more of a transformation that occurs! I mean new hair styles, new bodies, new wardrobes, new attitudes… Just brand new! I started to reflect on myself and how I have just stopped putting in extra effort to look sexy for him, except for special occasions. Why do women wait until it’s over with a significant other to “transform?” I don’t want that.
I’ve always asked my husband to tell me when he believes I have become too comfortable or if he finds that I’m no longer physically attractive but let’s be honest. Would I really receive that well though? Nah. Not really. So thankfully, I’m having a bit of a reality check on my own. Sometimes as a woman, I get so lost into being a MOMMY that I forget to be a WIFE.
Bonnets to bed are okay…SOMETIMES; but not every night. His t-shirt is cool every now and then but not every night. So it’s your day off? Get up put yourself together and be cute. Just put effort into yourself. If not for him then DO IT FOR YOU!
