I'm really curious about other people's stories on how they met and fell in love with their spouses. I believe my mom's is still the funniest because the first date with my dad involved an older sister, her husband and my dad's youngest sister watching them while they went to a drive in movie and my dad was stacking up beer cans. Amazingly they've been married nearly 38 years. Don't get me started on the proposal because that's another thread.
I met my husband online and NOT through a dating site either! I was recently divorced and worked 70hrs a week as a care aide to support my 2 year old daughter. I was also into an Italian cartoon called Winx Club. There was a message board to discuss that stuff and I started talking to him on there about politics, religion and other things. Then I found out he lived across the country and in Canada (I'm from the States) We never intended to be more than friends, but we IMed eachother a lot and in 2008 he came to visit the first time in New York. He and my daughter hit it off right away. In 2009 we were engaged and in 2010 we found out we were having our first child. We just got married back in March of 2011 and I now live with him and our girls in British Columbia.
As for how I fell for my husband, he has a great sense of humour. He always finds ways to make me laugh. Like during my custody and visitation hearings with my ex husband he was able to make me see I was better off without that jerk. He's also great with my older daughter, he taught her how to swim last year. He's just a great supportive guy and a wonderful father to both our daughters.
