    In the ten years we've been together, life has thrown us som fairly serious ****. Admittedly you could call them first world problems, but here's what works:

    We laugh a lot
    We share a love of music
    We share a great kid
    We are both convinced we married up (I know I did)
    More than anything, we want the other to be happy.

    Just the other day she saw a '73 goldtop Les Paul like I played in high school and encouraged me to go get it. We're far from rich, but she knew what it meant to me and how many years ago I made a difficult career choice and sold mine to pay college tuition. I'm a fortunate son.

    My wife and I had the instant fall-in-love thing happen in '97. That Christmas he first gift she gave was she bought me (that is to say- let me pick out and she paid for) a guitar. Nothing fancy, pretty inexpensive actually. It is long since sold off. But she remains. If I had kept the guitar and not her, I would be sad and homeless.

    Absolutely! I didn't think my wife paid a lot of attention to what gear I used, until one year, for Father's Day, she and the kids pitched in and ordered me a Marshall combo off of Musician's Friend. I had that amp for a good number of years.

    It goes both ways. My wife had a very old cedar bed-blanket chest that had seen better days. One year, for her birthday, I took it to a local woodworker and had it refinished. She was very happy. (Made me very happy too!)

    PS: This year makes 28 for us. 28 wonderful years.

    Thanks for reading.

    I could write that list, and even add some more. But...my wife would never encourage me to buy a guitar, amp, or pedal. You did real good!

    YEAH!

    That is awesome.

    My wife recently encouraged me a lot to get a bigger pedalboard.

    Her friend asked one (looking at the mass of equipment taking up our then smaller condo) if she knew what she was getting into with my stuff. She says "well he didn't actually have real furniture when we met, just cushions on amps to sit on. so yeah..."

    She is the female on the right.

    Superlative story. Congratulations. Now you have to take her on a monster second honeymoon!

    My wife and I have been together for over 35 yrs and I know for certain that without her, I would have been lost in life. 20 yrs ago, she gave me a PRS Archtop for my birthday!

    I'd trade my wife for a 73 Goldtop....actually would consider a MIM telecaster with buckle rash as well.

    I don't know why either, but I got a good chuckle out of it. :aok It was like saying "here's a picture of my wife and I, she's the one on the right".
