Did my husband marry me because I like football? In our circle of friends, I am often teasing that my husband only married me because of my love for football. To be truthful it probably played a huge role in our love for one another. Relationships grow stronger when you have things in common. Holding a conversation in any subject is important, and in my man’s world being able to talk football with his girl, is just an added bonus to his marriage.
I became interested in football at a young age and my knowledge of the game grew over time. When first dating, my ability to talk football impressed him. Although fans of different teams (thankfully in the same conference) we had something in common. Commonality in areas such as…morals, life dreams, family values, and overall interests are important aspects in any marriage. One of our biggest common connections just happens to be football.
Our love and passion for football continually brings us closer together, creating conversation and yes excitement. When a football game is on in our house their is exciting tension in the air. Our teams luckily only play one another every so often and at that time we might watch a game from seperate rooms. This, just because we have such passion for the game and our teams, that we might say something that could hurt.
Every couple should have common things they are passionate about together. This only helps to build a stronger marriage. Holding a conversation with my husband about football is exciting to me. It continues to bring us closer together through conversation. We text or call one another when we hear major nfl news that we find important or interesting. We watch games together and celebrate one anothers team wins. We console one another on losses. It is always date night on Sunday night football, Monday night football, Thurday Night Football and of course, the SuperBowl.
My husband and I have other harmonies, but if you ask me did my husband marry me because I like football, my answer would have to be yes. Yes he did, and for that I am Blessed!
