Knowing that made me appreciate even the littlest things he does for me.
Voluntary back or foot rubs, words of encouragement, letting me decide what clothes he should wear sometimes, doing the dishes among other things are a few of his languages of love.
He actually did it because he thought about it while he was in his ship cabin and didn’t want to forget about it. We see to it that we travel to Denmark and other neighbouring countries at least once a year.
Traveling allowed me to immerse myself deeper in the European culture.
Our lives just became more interesting, more challenging, more fulfilling. My husband works as a seafarer and I had a corporate job in the Philippines. It might be an exaggeration but it’s the best way to describe how wonderful it is to be married to that one true love that I waited for 29 years.
Today, I am going to share the things that I’ve learned from my Danish husband.After all, the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. My husband sent me an e-mail telling me that he would want us to do away with our phones on the dining table when eating.He wants us to enjoy our food and be able to talk and be physically and mentally available.Ever wonder why Denmark has always been the country of the happiest people on Earth? My husband is not the most expressive man on Earth and in fact he does not say “I love you” every day.However, he finds different ways to show me how much he loves me.See travel is an important part of a Danish family and so we do it.When our daughter is a little bit older and we’re done building our house, we plan to do a bit more traveling so we could collect more memories and not material things.In fact, it is a little bit harder because apart from the risks involved, it took a lot of work to communicate with someone on a different time zone.It took a great deal of adjustment and it ate a good chunk of our time.To cut the long story short, my online match booked his plane ticket from CPH to MNL after only two weeks of talking to each other and I brought a friend with me on our first date.I’m glad he was okay with it and we’ve been together ever since.
