Romantic Movies

Romance is serious business. Or is it?

What do you think your husband would choose if put to the test:

a.) Take care of good tearjerker movie, The Notebook
b.) do anything that does not involve the eyes Notebook

My answer is simple. My husband would opt for a root canal the day,
rather than through a movie like The Notebook or Terms of endearment.
Now do not get me wrong. That does not mean that is not romantic. The
man loves deeper than I could describe. It is simply not a fan of
traditional "romance movies."

Our date nights usually involve
Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Owen Wilson, or Jim Carrey. Those people do
not know this, but they are not a big part of what makes a marriage of
our joy. The fact that our date nights consist of a fun movie instead
of a forced moment means that my husband is happy and relaxed - two
very good things for romance.

Are you looking for a
lighthearted fun romantic movie that both you and your husband will
enjoy? Here are some of our favorites.

Princess Bride (1987)

"Is this a kissing book?" The Princess Bride is the story of a woman
who is forced to marry a cold, evil prince, while her true love is
trying to stop the wedding.

I do not know how many times I
tried to look at my husband to this movie to the end I put the film,
click on the "game", a hidden and remote. It is now one of his favorite
movies. I like it, because comedy and fighting. I like it because it's
just a joy to watch.

Groundhog Day (1993)
Once reluctant to cover Punksatawney Phil for Groundhog Day, a weatherman gets stuck living on the same day repeatedly.

This is one of my husband's all-time favorite movies. In addition, if
your husband is a fan of Caddyshack, he'll appreciate Bill Murray
battling a rodent once again.

The Wedding Singer (1998)
Robbie, the wedding singer and Julia, the waitress are both engaged to be married, but the wrong people.

Everyone who remembers the 80s will enjoy this completely. And every
woman will be teary-eyed Robbie, when you sing "grow old with you" at
the end.

Love Actually (2003)
This film portrays eight
stories of love. It shows romantic love, and love of a father to his
son, love between siblings, friendship and love. It's a nice story,
which shows that it is All About Love Actually. It's funny on so many
levels, but also deeply moving.

Romance does not need to be
serious. It can be fun! Just enjoy it. Now go make a funny movie,
snuggle with you and enjoy your husband.
