16 Reasons Why I Still Love My Wife After 16 Years of Marriage

That’s right! After 16 years of marriage I am still madly in love with my beautiful and wonderful wife Alisa. She’s not perfect and yet she is all mine. She has given me her heart, her soul, and her love even when I wasn’t worthy of them.

Her support on my crazy ideas (athletic, business, and family) is amazing, she has been a fantastic mom to our two kids, calls me out when I’ve pushed the limits, and most of all loves our Lord and has brought me closer to Him.

In all of that she’s only wanted to divorce me once. That was after I had taken a 4 1/2 month sojourn on the Pacific Crest Trail. Yep, I backpacked from Mexico to Canada without here. Divorce has never come up again in our marriage as we vowed at that moment to Play on the Same TEAM.

We’ve gone through a lot together over the last 16 years. Make sure to listen about our past in Episode 004 of the ONE Extraordinary Marriage Podcastbecause we know that if we have gone through tough times you probably have too.

In honor of my wonderful wife I bring to you the 16 Reasons Why I Still Love My Wife.

Thank you Dan, Ann, and Jen. 

Dan, I really love the email you sent out to Joanne. I'm going to mention that in next weeks podcast as it is a simple way to show your love and yet it has a big impact. Way to go!

Oh Ann, you are going to have the list of list after 29 years. ; )

Thanks Jen. Love is a verb and doing something each day to show that love has allowed us to live beyond awesome!

Excellent and beautiful post Tony - I love the list!  I can honestly say that after 29 years, I could create a pretty comprehensive list of my own for my husband - and thanks to your example I will!

What a great post and a reminder to me to be creating a list for my wife as well. Just yesterday I sent Joanne an email with "Important" in the subject line. Then the message simply said "I'll love you forever". Sometimes we forget the importance of continuing to do the little things after many years of marriage. Thanks for your ongoing nudges to work on our marriages with as much thoughtfulness as we do our businesses.
