Wow! I want to thank everyone for asking such awesome questions. Keep in mind that we wives are just going with our experiences but we're all trying our very best to give great answers.


What would you do if you found out your husband had a made up online identity that he was using to flirt with other women and was getting off from this experience?

Well I will say that I've gone through something sort of similar to this. I won't say with who or when or any of that. I will say that this can be a heartbreaking situation to go through and it's hard on both parties in the couple. If you think the relationship is worth salvaging, then you need to talk with your husband, do therapy, get it all out and work towards making things better. And if not... well, life isn't always about making easy decisions.

How much would you charge for advertising/sponsors?
Well I know on my personal blog I don't currently charge when it comes to sponsors. That will eventually change. I'm hoping someone else has a better answer to this question, I'm just starting to navigate when it comes to sponsors!

Can people apply to be regulars on The Wife Diaries?
Right now I think we're trying to see where this blog will take us. I will say eventually it'll be fun to add more women. And, of course, if you really want feel free to leave us a message and tell us you're interested.

How long have each of you been married and what do each of your think is the ONE main key to a successful marriage??
I have been married just over a year and a half. And like Meghan before me said, I think the biggest thing is communication. Marriage takes WORK. And it takes a lot of it. It's hard to do that work if you're not communicating with each other.

I have not felt like 'makin' woopie' :) with my hub for a while now. We are both quite busy (though more he than I) and when it comes down to it I just don't feel like it. Am I the only one who feels like this? What have you done in a situation like this?
Oh man, I think we have ALL been here. Well, I know I have anyway. As unsexy as it sounds, sometimes you just need to schedule sex in. If I think about it and I think, "Yikes, it's been awhile!" I will say, "Okay, today I don't care how tired I am, how much I do not feel like shaving my legs, how I would SO much rather read my book, I am going to have sex." It happens. But I know once I'm in the middle of "makin' woopie" I'm thinking, "Man, I LOVE this!"

How do you handle when someone from your husband's past comes back around...even if it is just a "friend" that may have been a little more than a friend at one point? Do you allow it? Do you have a hissy fit and say no way!! or what??
I think it depends on who the person is. My husband is more of a guy's guy so I haven't found that I need to worry too much about this. But I've found that unless he gives you a reason not to trust him then you should trust him! Come on, he chose you after all!

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
The ceremony. Particularly the LAUGHING during our ceremony. Oh my gosh, our ceremony was so darn sweet. I thought I would cry my eyes out through the whole thing. Instead I found myself giggling and smiling at Dustin and just feeling so darn happy and excited that I was marrying him. Ugh, there is no feeling like that. It was absolutely awesome.

What are your favorite weekend things to do with your hubby?
We are big movie marathon people. We'll cuddle up with junk food and movies and just veg and relax. It's so nice and we're both total movie fans. And when we're not being lazy couch potatoes, we enjoy going to baseball games (GO TWINS!), heading up to my parents' for the weekend or spending a weekend away in Duluth, MN.

Now that you're married, what's next?
Well I am in the process of just finding another job, which is HARD right now. Once we get that done, we still have plans on moving (it's sounding more and more like Florida). So I think that's the next big thing on our plate.

Are you and your hubs looking for the same thing in a house? or even with baby making? How do you resolve any differences?
I think we have the same outlook with most of those things. Dustin and I both come from the same kind of family so we know we want a good family house, we want a good living to provide for our kids, we'd like to have two kids (hopefully a boy and a girl with the boy being older) and we just want to be happy.

How did you get so many followers?
Seriously, I have no idea! But I'm so darn glad we have such great readers! You all rock!

There's just so much to relate to within these questions. We do have a bond as married women, don't we? (Ok, I'm currently in the process of leaving marriage behind but I'm still laying claim to the sister bond from it.) ;)

Woooonderful answers, my dear! I swear I didn't even see that you posted about scheduling in sex before I wrote my answer! Too funny!
