I don't know what happened this year but something must of clicked in SO's head. He's 30 this year maybe that but he is like going above and beyond to make us work. Honestly I never expected it. I got a card this morning telling me to check out accounts. He put money aside for our fertility treatments, and whatever we may need. He is taking the wedding seriously, making a contribution when he can. I remember why I fell in love to begin with. 7 years later and he still surprises me and still makes me smile <3
That's wonderful, it always helps when he feels more financially secure as well. Also, I notice that men seem to become a little more responsible once they hit there thirties, and more willing to work things out, so that could be part of it too. Not that I'm saying younger men are never responsible, just that some men take a bit longer. My brother, for instance, has been a moocher off my mom for as long as I can remember, and now that he's in his 30's he's finally got a steady job, and is moving out on his own. I'm certain this move will be permanent as he's not just moving in town, he's moving hundreds of miles away, and he's taking his job with him. Sometimes people just need a little longer to get themselves together, and it sounds like you are enjoying the benefits. I wish you every happiness with your family.
