Absolutely (peace to you all!). It was an accident, however - wasn't "supposed" to happen. IMHO at the time. After the first (of 16 years), I'd kinda vowed "never again" (first 8 years was great; 2nd 8 years sucked for most parts). Ran away when I realized he was falling for me (and I for him). Too scared and too... I dunno... "settled." We became friends first and now I've been married 4 years to my best friend (known almost 12 years).
He is (in my world), the kindest, tenderest, even-keeledest, EASIEST person to be a friend to, be with, and live with. He is super cool, very funny (although he says I am the one who keeps HIM laughing!), very appreciative and, most importantly... lets me be me. 100%. Unfortunately, I am a girl and so, like many girls, have a some control issues. So, I am only able to let him be him about 97% of the time. (The 3% is due to the times when, after marvelling about it for a few secs... I forget myself and comment as to his severe absent-mindedness - you know, that kind that forgets to pick up milk on the way home... after I've called, texted, AND emailed "Don't forget to pick up some milk"? LOLOLOLOL!). But he really IS absent-minded, so I don't take it personally but "get over it" really quickly. Life's way too short and being a recipient of his true nature and qualities makes it not worth crying over milk that wasn't picked up... let alone spilled.
The thing is that we really are "yin and yang", if there be such a thing... in a very good way... and if I had to do it all over again, I would marry him again in a heartbeat. Only much, much sooner. We "get" each other... accidentally AND on purpose.
And...and this is VERY important... I can count on him. EVERY time (I mean, so long as it's not picking up milk - LOLOLOLOL!). Which is GREAT!
He is independent, makes a great living (and is very respected at work), has his own interests/hobbies, and has no problem being left alone from time to time when I have to travel out of town (for work or to visit other dear ones or my kids and he can't get away)... or going out of town by himself when his hobbies call for it (but I don't want to go because it's to, say, the outer reaches of Michigan during a 10-below snowstorm! Who, me?!! No, way: I'm a California girl!).
One thing that helps: we give each other a "blanket" apology at the beginning of each month. For "whatever" (but primarily those times when we should apologize but don't because we either overlook the need/forget to... or think we don't need to). Then it's just done. Oh, and we're VERY kind to one another. I mean, he's my best friend, my "other half." If I shouldn't be kind to HIM... who should I be kind to?
Ennywho, I know... another long response from SA. What can I say? "Out of the heart's abundance, the fingers type."
