Fun Monday

After seeing how much fun "Fun Monday" can be over at Sayre's place, I have volunteered to "host" next week's Fun Monday! I have been thinking all day about what topic to go with, ranging from fun and fluffy to deep and dangerous. I have finally decided to go with "semi-deep" (is that anything like being "kind of pregnant"?).

ANYWAY......here's my topic: Love and Marriage. I have been married twice, once for 14 years, once for a year (long story, for those of you who don't know me). And now I am mid-40s, involved with a wonderful man, contemplating marriage for a third time. So what I want to know is: what do you consider important to a good marriage or relationship? Tell us a story of something endearing about your marriage or your parents' marriage. Include any wedding pictures or images of love that remind you of what a good relationship should be.

Let me know in the comments if you're in for next week.

Swampy the Rebel said...

My Dear Hoosier Girl !
My name is Swampwitch...Swampy for short.
For over 2, yes count them T.W.O. whole years, I never missed a Mon Funday.
For the past few months, I've not participated in 1, yes count them O.N.E. Mon Funday.
I would like to play again.
BUT, if you ask around, you will find that very seldom do I follow the rules. Sometimes, I try really hard, but when that post goes up, it has nothing to do with what the assignment was.
So, Hoosier Girl, you may or may not allow me to play.
I promise to post something on Monday, but since I'm traveling, I have no wedding pics to share that are on this computer's hard drive. Maybe I'll steal someone else's to post.
At any rate, count me in for Mon Funday.
Sincerely,
Your best new friend,
Swampy

Hi Hoosier Girl! And welcome to Fun Monday from your KY neighbor. I'll play although my contribution may have to be mostly "book learning" since have nil experience with marriage. I do, however, totally believe in love. Thanks for hosting.

Mariposa said...

I'm not married yet but soon to be...and I guess it's something i'd love to write about as well so please count me in!

And welcome to Fun Monday!

Dear Hoosiergirl, I am a bit like Swampy at times but I did promise I would join in this week so I will try very hard to behave and to actually write a post this week! (I have been a bit slack with my blogging lately!)

Please count me in! I humbly promise to do something!!!!
