As a way of conducting research, Jeanette and Chandler spent some time in the car discussing everything they loved about each other and about the two of them as a couple!
Here’s the list they came up with:
Things we love about each other:
We’re both easy to travel with.
Even the things that annoy us are still endearing.
She likes his short hair.
He likes her long hair.
He likes to hold her hand when they’re walking.
He’s a great singer.
Sometimes she takes charge and sometimes steps back to let him take charge.
We’re both flexible.
We’re both confident.
We give each other space and don’t have to do everything together.
We support each other’s hobbies and have independent hobbies.
We rarely use passive-aggressive influence.
She’s good at navigating.
He’s willing to drive all day so she can write in the car.
We’re physically compatible.
We’re polite to each other.
We rarely fight or even raise our voices at each other.
We’ve never even considered separating or gotten so angry that the subject would even present itself.
We don’t talk down to each other.
We both love God and church.
We both love nature and the environment. We were both into recycling before we even met.
She likes that he is devoted to his church callings and priesthood commitments.
Our eyes have never strayed from one another. We never have had to question our commitment to each other.
She like that he comes home to her every evening and sleeps in her bed every night. He never goes to bars or stays out late with friends.
She like it that he doesn’t drink alcohol, like, ever.
He loved her daughter right away and saw her as a wonderful addition to his life rather than baggage that came along with the woman he fell in love with.
He loved our children and rarely yelled at them or criticized them.
He provided for us.
He would have rather worked two jobs than to have her leave our home to work and hire a day care or babysitter.
We love to sing along to music together while driving in the car.
