This woman (Patty) is the love of my life, she gave me a scare 3 weeks ago where I thought I would have lost her. She is doing much better now, stopped smoking cigarettes, fixed her diet and is going to start exercising soon. She was diagnosed with a clogged artery she is 50

I f'ck around alot on these boards (and on FB, IG etc etc) and in real life, flirting/joking with lots of woman but one thing is for sure I would never cheat on this women, nor would I ever turn my back on her ever

She is my rock, my world, without her I would be either dead or in prison, she has put up with my sh!t for 32 years and has loved me unconditionally.

I figured I give her some much deserved props on here as I rarely put up pictures of her. This was her and I last night at Edos a Hibachi restaurant.

I know most of the folks on here don't like me, but do not hate on my wife due to my stupidity, she is truly an angel.

A good faithful woman that will stand by your side through it all is a hard find man. Congrats. My wife has been by my side for 17 years. I couldn't imagine what life would be like without her.

What's the saying? "hate BH, but not his wife?" J/K. Congrats on the 32 years. I'm going on 26 years myself. Great pic of you and Patty.

with all the posts I see in here griping about spouses and how they dont measure up somehow
its nice to see someone say something good and positive about the person they have in their life :)

:confused:not you of course but in time I have been on here there have been so many about how my spouse is _____ . makes me cringe and wonder what their spouse would say if she or he knew they were being talked about on a public forum in such a way..


just saying its nice to see someone praise instead of complain :D

Congrats on the 32 years! Nice to see this type of post on here. My wife puts up with a lot of crap from me as well. Just went through a bout of cancer and had surgery in January... she helped me make some tough decisions and not sure what I would have done without her by my side.

Very nice pic of you and Patty. Congrats on the 32 years. It's really nice to see positive comments about a spouse. Wishing her a very speedy recovery.

I'm married 38 years myself and can't say enough good things about the hubs.

I was gonna one-star this thread because it's a BH tradition, but I was so touched by the sincerity of this thread that I 5-starred it..

May the Good Lord continue to bless your marriage and family..

OP, it sounds like you have a good woman and you realize you're human. Stay faithful and let that woman know how much you love her everyday.

Thanks everyone, I know the folks who have met Patty and I IRL know how strong our relationship is, and although I don't need to justify my actions (acting a fool on here although I am married) it still needs mentioning how much I love this woman.

Almost losing her or at the very least thinking I was, just confirmed just how much I love her.

Again, just wanted you guys to know, although I can be an ass on here, there is still someone who can set me straight in a heartbeat.

Thanks again for not knocking the thread, wouldn't want Patty to be hated by association on BB.com

I'm really glad to hear that she is doing better. Quitting smoking is huge. Congrats to her. You're a good family man. With your help, she'll get there faster.

I'm going on 31 years here, but my wife is still undergoing chemo and all the other not fun things with her pancreatic cancer. She has her good and bad days, I have found a whole 'nother appreciation for her within the last 6 months. I'm one of those guys who has never said a bad word about his wife, she's been rock solid year in and year out for as long as I've known her.

The current chemo is rough on her, if she can come out on the other side of it, lots of us will be very grateful.

Funny... I married the PR girl from Brooklyn and I'm the Czech-British mutt. No grandkids.. believe me I can wait.

BH, this thread made me dislike you a little less lol. Just dont post like this too often or we may think you will end up changing your name to bodysoft ;)

Congrats and hope she keeps going strong with the healthy changes. You can definitely support her on that!
Glad she is doing well.

BH I wish you and Patty the best.

At least they found it soon enough so that something less invasive can be done unlike what happened in my case.
Don't ever be afraid to get a second opinion or question the Dr. I know how shy you can be.
I was told when I went through my ordeal "Even at Med. school someone has to Graduate at the bottom of the class."

Once again thanking all the new folks who have wished her well

What happen to you if you don't mind.

I think Patty is going for a second opinion because sometimes she still feels the pain, she is not sure if it is anxiety bringing it on or what.

How could anyone hate Patty? Pity/admire/she's crazy for putting up with you, maybe. Or perhaps canonization:D

I have a great respect and admiration for your marriage. From what I gather, she is a remarkable woman, and I am praying that all turns out well for her.

I'd rep you for your rare flash of humility and vulnerability (brb, running for cover here!), but I'm on spread with you.

I know she is an angel, but so many people on here hate me, I thought they would take it out on her and that is not fair to her....Thanks for the props.

Sorry to take so long getting back to you work has been crazy lately.
I had a triple bypass.
I was having chest pain shortness of breath and numbness in the hands and feet (that's what made me go to the DR).
I told the original Dr that I had Diabetes and hadn't been taking care of it. I could go on forever about this but, the original Dr. paid no attention to me until I told him to take his face out of the computer. He then told me it's stress/anxiety and I need to get back in shape. Told me to go to the gym and get on the treadmill. Didn't even want to do a stress test until I told him to make sure his malpractise is paid up because if I drop dead on the treadmill my wife and kids are going to have a nice house and good college education.

I have "shtty genetics" told by another Dr after the surgey. Lots of other issues constantly trying to get corrected.

I agree 100% but everyone makes mistakes was my point.

Good luck man. Glad she is changing her habits. Been married 17 yrs (yesterday) and wouldn't trade her for anything. These young miscers will figure it out at some point. At 35 and older life is takes on a different meaning and that woman is going to be with you until the end. Worth doing everything you can to hold on to and cherish. My wife almost lost me on two separate occasions. It will strengthen your bond.
