On the front end I would like to be very clear my wife has made many more sacrifices in our marriage than I have.
However, if I may brag on myself I made a huge one last night. I went with her to see the Broadway musical Wicked. I remember when we were first dating there was a 3 to 4 week window where I tried to pretend like I was the kind of guy who enjoyed the fine arts. It seemed like adopting this role was going to be important to win the heart of the woman I loved. Once I discovered I could win her heart without adopting a love for the “arts” I quickly ditched my pretend passion.
And to be honest, I wanted to be “that guy.” I wanted to want to go to the art gallery, and the Broadway play, but it just isn’t me. Now I’ll sit on a hill and watch the sunset with you every night and go for long walks, and even watch a chic flick or two, but I’m just not a huge fan of the plays, musicals and art galleries.
But I’m learning there are some things I should love simply because she loves them. Wicked was one of those things. I enjoyed it for no other reason then she enjoyed it so much.
What is the one thing you “love” only because your spouse or friends love it?
