Did your husband tell you he loved you on your wedding day?

Mine didn't. Anyone else experience the same? Did it/does it bother you?

DH and I didn't say it to each other, as we're not the sentimental type and we hardly ever say it. We cut the vows down to the most basic that was allowed as all the more flowery examples on offer made me cringe a bit. It didn't bother me, I know full well he loved me, as he wouldn't have been marrying me if he didn't!

No, we had too much 🍾

Chasingsquirrels Tue 31-May-16 21:53:35

I'll tell you tomorrow!

SirChenjin Tue 31-May-16 21:53:38

As in during the vows? Nope, that would have been far too cringey.

I'm pretty sure he must have said it at some point, it was 22 years ago so can't really remember confused

Pleasemrstweedie Tue 31-May-16 21:53:59

Almost certainly. He tells me most days.

Married 12 years, together 14.

sminkypinky Tue 31-May-16 21:54:46

No he didn't, I didn't say it to him either, hadn't really thought about it until now to be honest. Like spunsugar we're not really sentimental and don't really say it that often.

Most definitely. He tells me (and more importantly, he shows me) how much he loves me every day.

My first husband didn't say it at all.

situatedknowledge Tue 31-May-16 21:56:54

Chasingsquirrels! Do you get married tomorrow?

MrsBungle Tue 31-May-16 21:58:35

Not during the vows but at least 10 times during the day! We say it most days to each other.

Chasingsquirrels Tue 31-May-16 22:02:30

Well - fingers crossed! Looks quite likely we will be able to go ahead atm but have to see how DP is tomorrow.

LuluJakey1 Tue 31-May-16 22:04:28

Not during the vows but before we left for the Registry Office, when we were at the reception and later at the hotel when we were lying exhausted watching a norror film, too tired for sex and eating bacon sandwiches and having cups of tea.

pinktransit Tue 31-May-16 22:04:43

Probably. But he told a lot of lies that day...

LuluJakey1 Tue 31-May-16 22:06:19

Hope it all goes ahead ChasingSquirrels and that you have the best day. Have read your other thread. You both deserve a lovely day.

DramaAlpaca Tue 31-May-16 22:06:22

I can't remember! We've been married nearly 26 years, so it worked out OK.

Chasing hope it works out for you both tomorrow flowers

bert3400 Tue 31-May-16 22:09:25

Yes mine did but he also mentioned about less farting as well and that hasn't happend !smile

Auriga Tue 31-May-16 22:10:36

No. He doesn't tell me. He may have said it twice in 20 years. But he shows it in his actions every day.

Pinkheart5915 Tue 31-May-16 22:11:41

Mine did after we were married and the kissing bit was over.
Dh says he loves me most days

LogicalThinking Tue 31-May-16 22:11:45

Mine tells me every day - always has done.

leopardspice Tue 31-May-16 22:13:08

Yes definitely said "I love you" however he didn't need to SAY it because he acts and shows me that he loves me daily so if he hadn't actually said the words on the big day it wouldnt have changed anything

AndYourBirdCanSing Tue 31-May-16 22:13:45

Chasing good luck for tomorrow! Hope it all goes well!

I can't remember to be honest but I'm guessing he did

MardleBum Tue 31-May-16 22:14:07

I can't remember specifically but I don't think there has been a day in 25 years that he hasn't told me, so I would think that my wedding day was no different!

My mother on the other hand, well I can't remember her ever saying it in my life.

Tootsiepops Tue 31-May-16 22:15:24

Can't actually remember, but guessing not as he tends not to say it very often.

ifeeltheneedtheneedforspeed Tue 31-May-16 22:15:30

Thanks for the replies, I guess as things are not so great at the moment I'm analysing things too much. Reassuring to know it's actually quite common.
