Why You Should Love Your Husband, Faults and All

He Gives Great Back Rubs

I hear it all the time: "My husband gives me a back rub, but then he wants sex, and I'm just too tired!" Sure, there might be an ulterior motive to his masseur routine, but after a long day of dealing with the demands of children, don't take for granted the luxury of a personalized massage in your own bed, especially by a man who finds you sexy even though you haven't shaved your legs in two weeks. Still not convinced? Think about this: Whenever you want to be touched, you don't have to get a bikini wax, blow-dry your hair, find a spit-up-free outfit, apply lipstick and eyeliner, drive to a restaurant, and sit through a tedious two-hour meal for the mere possibility of some heavy petting while the babysitter meter is tick-tick-ticking away. With your husband, you don't have to follow up with cleverly flirtatious e-mails or engage in time-consuming courtship rituals. Heck, you don't even have to make conversation at all if you're not in the mood. With zero effort on your part, your husband is right where you want him: in your bed. (Besides, with little people clinging to you all day long, isn't it nice to be touched by someone bigger than 3 feet tall?)
