It is going to be three years of my wedding with Sanjay, but it still feels as it was just yesterday. Sometimes, even a normal day seemed like eons while many time weeks or months just fly by.
My hubby is quite expressive, only with me though. The rest of the world thinks this bureaucrat is tight lipped while I find so hard to shut him up if he gets on to speaking. From early morning to late night, he has loads of interesting (and sometimes quite boring) incidents to narrate to me. He discusses India's challenges, strengths and weaknesses with such an ease that these topics of discussion have become a part of our romantic life and I actually like it.
I like the sparkle in his eyes when he speaks on these and particularly when he asks me 'so, what is your opinion on this?'.. I feel so proud of my intellect that an IAS officer is asking for my opinion. Well, jokes apart, I thoroughly enjoy talking about the non-romantic things with him as it keeps our life fueled with knowledge, updates and gives us an opportunity to truly understand and appreciate each other.
It is really important for a couple to engage in such intellectual discussions. This gives you a clear peep inside the head of your partner who otherwise may not express himself clearly.
Expression of love is very important in any relationship. Many a times, you have to explicitly say out few words to make things clear to your partner. And often, those few or rather three words sum up everything romantic of this world into one phrase.
If you ask me I would say the few words that I love to hear and that he often utters are - I'm Only Yours! More than the usual I Love You.. these are the words that touch me the most and that make me feel blessed. Truly blessed.
