Wedded Wednesday- Justin Says

Head over to Marital-Bless to see other 
Wedded Wednesday posts and bloggers!

The blog has been seriously lacking in Justin I thought that I'd go ahead and interview him for my Wedded Wednesday post. Enjoy :)

1. So, as some of the blog readers know, your lovely youngest sister is getting married this summer to one of your best friends. What is the biggest piece of marriage/relationship advice you'd give them?

Don't take everything too seriously, except for the serious things.  Don't go to bed angry.  Don't drink when you're mad.  Always say I love you when you leave, finish a phone conversation, or go to sleep ( even if you're irritated).  And try not to grumble about your spouse. 

2. What has been the best part of being married? What has been the worst?

There is nothing like sharing a warm bed with a woman.  And I like not having to cook for myself.  I also have some pretty cool inlaws who like to take everyone to lunch, dinner, and a movie.  I'm not a fan of nagging.  Wives nag.  Nothing against them, they're wired that way.  And Meredith nags for good reasons.  So really, I just don't like having someone there to point out what needs to be done when I clearly don't want to do it. 

3. Do you feel like our relationship has changed since Lizzy was born? If so, how?

If it has I think that it hasn't been a big change.  I definitely didn't know about and/or expect a lot of what happened to Meredith's body during and after labor.  It was a huge eye opener for me and I have a lot more respect for women in general in regards to child birth.  I'm glad I'm a guy.

4. We've done a couple different Biblical Studies on marriage--The Love Dare, The Five Love Languages, Love & Respect, etc. Which was your favorite, and why?

I don't have a favorite.  All of them had some good parts to them and they had some cheesy stupid parts to them as well.  But it is nice to hear from other couples about their struggles in life and marriage and how they deal with them as well as getting tips and pointers, and insight to the woman's mind. 

5. If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?

I would be an underwear model.  Because this is America and I can be all that I want to be. 

6. Is your life today where you imagined it would be five years ago?

Pretty close.  I thought we would have a couple more kids by now.  I knew that I'd be doing something in construction.  And I knew we would own a house.

7. Where do you see yourself five years from now?

A couple more kids.  Maybe a wakeboard boat.  Lower car insurance.  Possibly a full beard.  And hopefully a six pack because my cooler is kinda empty and I want to be an underwear model. 

8. What's your least favorite meal that I make? What's your favorite?

That garlic chicken thing you made about a month ago.  I like garlic in certain things.  But the combination in that dish was pretty gross.  I do like the bacon cheeseburger pasta.  And the bar-b- que'd pulled pork is pretty good too.

{M here- obviously "that garlic chicken thing" was his least favorite, but unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea what he's talking about...I haven't really cooked anything that garlic-y since Lizzy was born}
