What a terrific title! You have some great lines... "There was no twitching or bobbing of the legs; nervous tendencies were probably against some secret code of shrinks" ... "His country drawl and proud unapologetic gut level honesty had stood out like fireworks on Easter Sunday."
"celebrate who he is and who you are together.”" wise advice.
Excellent descriptions, good dialogue. Well done.

Your idea in this story is excellent. You may want to consider putting the main character's thoughts in italics to keep it seperate from the narrative. Keep writing!
Definitely one of my favorites this week. It has a good message and the author has excellent writing skills to convey that message.

Great story, beautiful ending. Nice job.
Title definitely a grabber. Excellent read for many who feel they can "marry a pig" and turn them into "a silk purse". ;)
Comment on my comment: Hope you caught the "wink". I wasn't calling your MC's husband a pig. It's just a saying, at least where I was raised, that you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. :)
3rd place, wow! Congratulations.
