Ok, so I met my husband online! Yes, I said it online! I had been online talking to people in another city because I was planning to move. Some how I bumped into this person who was in my same city. We started chatting about our past relationships and became friends first. Then we decided to meet in person, in a public place with my friends present. We became great friends and then he started to show more of a serious interest. I asked my brother, "how do you know if you have found the one?" He said, "You will know that the person you have found really cares for you when he does things like clean your car off with snow, send you flowers just because, and open doors for you." Within the next couple of weeks he did all of those three things and that is when I knew he was the one! We have been happily married every since! :)

my husband and I first met in 2001.

We were part of an online forum and found out we lived close to each other and had mutual friends. I liked him, a lot, from the start and I was the go-getter.. always asking him to go out with me, or hang out etc.. it wasn't until 2004 when he started getting the hint that "oh she digs me!" lol, and we started dating from there.

He's so wonderful, it was just an immediate connection for me. And things have been wonderful since :)

We got married in May of 2007 and will have been together 6 years this October :)

I met my husband on a double date. I had this boy that kept pestering me wanting a date (I was 36 the boy was 23) and so I told my friend to find a date and I would meet this kid to blow him off. Well, my friend brought Mike to dinner with her. He and I talked alot through dinner and found we had another mutual friend. Date ended and I didn't give it much thought until about 3 monthes later I got a friends request thru a social network from Mike thru our mutual friend. We started talking, exchanged phone numbers and planned a date. I asked my friend if she was ok with it so not to hurt her feeling (which was not neccesay since she was already living with a different flavor of her week!). We had our first date in February. A month later we knew we could not stand a day apart, but we lived an hour away from each other. April we started looking for a house in the middle. May 1st we spent the first night in our house together with 4 of our 6 kids. He proposed later that month. We married in October and have never had a second thought about if we were rushing things or not. Every day is a dream with him. My family loves him. My ex husband says he is the perfect man for me! His family loves me too! Our kids get along great....well as good as brothers and sisters do! He does all the little things that mean so much (opening doors, phone calls to tell me he loves me in the middle of the day, a cold pepsi on a rough day, hold my hands when we watch tv, brings home chick flicks to watch with me) and the big things that make him a man worth his weight in gold (treats my kids like his own, supports me in all I do, takes care of me while sick, and is always my best friend!) I know I am a very lucky lady to have my prince charming!

I was 15 years old when I met Nick. At this point in my life, it was very important to me that I remain faithful to my future husband. The first time I ever saw Nick, I had a flash of us getting married, and I had a lot of guilt over it, because I felt like I was dishonoring my future husband! (ironic) Well, we started talking, and about a month later we started dating. We weren't together even a week and we both knew we would spend the rest of our lives together! We married when I was 19, and became pregnant not even a month later! I feel so blessed to have married my best friend!

I was in middle school when I first met Brian. We were friends for a couple of years and nothing more. In my freshman year one of my friends was going on her first date. She BEGGED me to go with her if her boyfriend brought one of his friends. I was totally dead set against it b/c I didn't want to be set up with anyone, especially someone I didn't know. But after alot of begging, at the last moment I chose to go. When we met, I realize that her boyfriend's friend is a friend of mine as well. We hit it off right away and we both fell in love fast. We have been married now for 14 years in June and we have 4 beautiful kids together. We have had our fair share of ups and downs but we always end up on top and together! I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful husband and best friend!

I met my husband when I was 5, he was 8. I haven't stopped following him around since. I knew from day 1 he was and will always be my 1 true love. He is without a doubt my soul mate. We have 6 wonderful boys.

[deleted account]

I actually met my man in HIGHSCHOOL! I didn't really know him, or talk to him, but one day the soda machine ate my dollar, he saw my struggle from his lunch table and decided to help. He put a dollar in the machine, smiled at me, and walked away. A few years later I had re-connected with an old friend, she invited me over to her house and introduced me to her fiance and his brother...WIthin a few days we started dating and after a few months he told me about this incident with the soda machine. I had only vauge memories of the situation, but he was able to tell me exactly what I had been wearing that day...He finally admited to me that he had a crush on me in highschool but thought I was too good for him! I was a shy girl, and never would have guessed someone had a crush on me!!! I wish I would have paid more attention to the cute boy who bought me a soda, but its ok. I got him in the end :-)

i met my husband in eighth grade gym class and home ec. We were sewing stupid cubes on sewing machine and my friend asked me to help her because her needle got stuck. I started to and she hit the peddle to the machine and the needle went through my finger. I was pissed! I told her to cut the damn string to separate me form the machine and raised my hand and asked to go to the nurse. I got back from the nurse and everyone was looking at me. A kid came up to me and said, "if that was me i'd be running up and down the halls screaming! youre tough!"

the second time we spoke was in gym running. I was far up ahead, so he left a group of friends to catch up....he got infront of me and said, " stand there a second...i gotta pick my wedge. he picked his wedgie and slowed down to meet back up with his friends...romantic... he had my heart at wedge! i knew that night when i couldnt stop thinking about this dumb ass kid that he was the one! been together 9 years now!

I met my husband when I was 18. When I was 7 months old I was given up for adoption, then when I turned 18 I found my birth-mom living near Buffalo, NY. I went up to visit her. Her next-door neighbors son is now my husband. I met him when I went up there. It was love at first sight. I never went back home, and we married 3 months after I came up there. 2 kids and 6 years later we are more in love than ever! The relationship with my birth-mom didn't work out, I don't speak to her anymore. People always ask if I regret meeting my birth mom. Not for 1 second...if I hadn't met her, I wouldn't have met my husband. And that is the ONLY good thing that came out of it! Sometimes things are just meant to be!

I met my husband at church when I was 17.

I got accepted into a UNI (college for US - I'm in Australia) that was about 7 hours away from home and was boarding with a family i found through a church. I arrived in town on the saturday and went to church with the family on the sunday. My hubby was also boarding with another church family and so he introduced himself and then came around after church to take me for a drive and show me the town. Our friendship grew over the next few months and we started dating on my 18th birthday. I knew that he was the man i was going to marry when we started dating and was very keen, but my hubby decided that he wanted to wait until we'd finished uni and both gotten jobs so that we could afford a nice wedding and have a good start. We had a great time through the uni years and when we'd finished both got good jobs. My hubby proposed on my 21st birthday (which was also the 3rd year of us being together) and we then had the lovely wedding that I'd always dreamed of. I really honour him for being so wise even back then and even with my nagging.

I met my husband at a bar we both went to on a regular basis. For over a month we would pass by each other in the bar and throw a smile out, but never said hello. Finally one weekend I told my girlfriend that I had to say something. Next thing you know I yell out "you are so cute" and he turned around. We had our first dance that night and have been stuck to each others hip ever since. I knew he was the one when rather than take me back to his place, our first half a dozen dates were spent at various parks talking and getting to know each other better.

I met my husband just before my 17th birthday (june 2000). We were in a nursing program, he was just a year ahead of me. I saw him come into my classroom a few times and I just thought he was so handsome and I would always tell my friends this. Now I tried EVERYTHING under the sun to get him to notice me, and nothing worked!! Finally my teacher was asking for volunteers to help at the nursing graduation, and I didnt really feel like doing it so I didnt. I was at the mall and it hit me..HE WAS GRADUATING! I quickly raced over to the school and started helping just so I could see him lol..I was too shy at the time but my friend got his number for me..I called him the next day and a few days later we went on our first date..the rest is history! We became best friends, and have had sooo much fun together. 5 years later he proposed to me on a cruise, and we got married on our 7 yr wedding anniversary of our first date(june 2007) March 2008 we welcomed our amazing son..celebrating 10 yrs this June of falling in love with my best friend ♥

Well my story is very long and would take too long to completely explain. So...i'll give the short version!!!! I married at the age of 19 in 2005 and lost my husband 4 months later. It was very tragic and i never thought i would ever remarry let alone be happy! well not even one year later my husband came into my life through my sister and his best friend. My sister had become from friends with them and decided to have them over for dinner so i could meet them too. I was definitely NOT looking for a relationship at all so that wasn't even on my mind when meeting him. Well he wasn't looking for a relationship either due to the fact that the Marine Corps was getting ready to send him across the world to fight for our freedom. Well God had another plan for both of us!!!lol We met that night and had some really good conversations. We had a lot in common. One being that he lost his dad the same year that i lost my first husband. His loss was also very tragic as was mine. So we became good friends and hung out for a month and half. When he went home on leave we both realized that there was something there. We both decided that we wanted to be "together". A few days later he told me he loved me and then a week later i picked him up from the airport and he greeted me with our first kiss!! a month later he left for Iraq and we spent the first seven month months of our relationship writing letters and talking on the phone. I knew he was the one the first night i met him but it took a little time for us to convince ourselves it was for real!! We have been happily married now for almost 2 yrs on feb. 2nd and we have a beautiful 14mo. baby girl. Well i know my story was long but i love telling it because its so special.

I met my husband at 14 at school and noticed he was the only one i felt comfortable with to talk about anything however i didn't appreciate what was in front of me until i was 17/18 as we were speaking on the phone every wednesdayof the week.

When he stopped calling for a few weeks i was hurt but didn't realise he was in hospital extremely poorly - it was during this time i dreamt we got married, it hit me that not only did i love him but he was the one.

I met my husband on line as well. Almost 8 years ago. We have been very happily married for 6. My mom put my profile on line and he was the first one (and last) I responded to. We met in a very public place hit it off very well and after that night we knew there was something serious between us. I call him "my superman".

I met my husband at work, he was always teasing me and I couldn't stand the guy! Out of the blue, I fell in love with him and can't see my life without him, he is the nicest, most wonderful guy. Great father, his children and grandchild and me come first, he loves to spend time with all of us, he would send me flowers at work on every special occassion we have (at the moment, he can't do it:o( unemployed). He cooks, cleans the house because he is at home at the moment, does laundry and the most wonderful thing, gives great feet, leg and back massages, my friends are always commenting on what a gentleman he is and how helpful.

My husband and I were a case of HATE at first sight!! It was the weekend before medical school started (yes, we're both doctors now!) and neither of us could afford a real apartment, so we had both signed up for a "co-ed fraternity house" that had rooms to rent for $90 a month, furnished. Not well furnished (old hospital beds to sleep on -- but hey, it got you used to them), and with a communal kitchen, den, and bathrooms; but you didn't have to actually join the fraternity to get the cheap rooms. This was in a very seedy neighborhood near the medical school, and everyone was warned ahead of time you DON'T answer the door without the manager or other person experienced in "the ways of downtown" with you. On that specific Saturday morning, several days after I'd moved in early to get used to the living arrangement before classes started, the front doorbell rang. I couldn't get the manager up (he had a hangover) and there didn't seem to be anybody else there. After letting the doorbell ring for nearly 45 minutes, I figured they weren't going away, so I had better answer it to save my ears and my sanity, but I was scared to death. I swung open the door very suddenly, yelling "what the hell do you want?" so as to scare any criminal type, if that's what they were. There stood a very attractive guy with a girl hanging on each shoulder, like a James Bond poster. He had luggage, and pushed by me and ordered the girls to bring in the bags. He thought I was some piece of work for making him wait out there that long and then not only answering the door kinda crazy, but not having a key waiting for him and acting like it was something abnormal to have two girls unpack his stuff and even put a coat of fresh paint on his room before he was totally unpacked. The other occupants (mainly guys, of course) were also quite 'impressed' and he waited nearly six months to tell anybody that those had been his little sister and her best friend. He turned out to be the smartest guy in the house, so he got a lot of attention at study times, but I turned out to be just about the only one there that knew how to cook, so I got a lot of attention at meal times. We grew on each other pretty fast, and by the time the second year of medical school started, our frat house mates had to do without us, because we were in newlywed housing. Double doctor couples rarely make it to their 10th anniversary, but we've been happily married for 27 years now.

My best friend, Julie was running a general store in a small country community in the summer of 1995. I was hanging out w/her one hot day that summer when in walked this guy. Something happened immediately, at that very moment I knew that he was the one that I would marry and I didn't even know his name! I watched him as he walked to the drink cooler to get a diet mountain dew not knowing that Jul was watching me watching him. A few days later she introduced us one night after closing the store. He asked me if I wanted to go for a ride and I told him yes. During that ride he asked me a question that I'll never forget "Where do think this is going?" That queston let me know that he felt what I felt and knew what I knew. I played it cool and answered him with "I don't know, lets wait and see" and the rest is history. We dated for 2 years and we saw each other every single day during our courtship. We were married on January 25, 1997 (that very day would have been my parents 36th wedding anniversary, my Daddy died in January 1981, a month shy of his 41st b-day). Here we are days away from our 13th wedding anniversary and life is good! He makes me laugh every single day. It was doubtful that I would ever get pregnant and yet we did on our honeymoon. His family was so very concerned about him being a dad as he was young and never paid any attention to the babies in their family so they told me. Well let me tell you, it does make a difference when it is your baby, your child, your children. He is a wonderful, responsible daddy to our two children; a son, Tanner who is 12 and a daughter, Maelynn who is 7. My life, our life is wonderful!

I met my husband at work. His boss told him to call the temp agency that I worked for. The first day we met we went to lunch. In the same afternoon I got a sticky note on my desk (His desk was right next to mine). It said "Are you doing anything tonight and if not do you want to?" I said that I had dinner plans with friends but we could meet back in the office parking lot and go to the local mall. We did go to the mall. He purchased a teddy bear for me since my birthday was the week before and I collect teddy bears.



I knew he was the one when I went on a family vacation without him the day after Christmas. He gave me his phone card to call him if I wanted to talk. I tried not to call or think about him. After two days I broke down and used the calling card to call him at work. I missed him so much I burst into tears when he answered the phone. We've been together ever since.

I met my hubby in Bible college. He had a girlfriend back home so we were just friends to begin with. We hung out together alot but then it seemed to become more. My husband took me to see shakespere in love as "friends". He told me he would climb a balcony for me. Then i went away for the summer to North Carolina and one night I was having the worst day so he told me to go get ready for bed and he would call me back. When he called me he read me I'll love you forever. Thats when I knew he was the ONE. He is still as romantic leaving me little notes and lots of poems. God blessed me with the perfect husband for me.

Me and my husband also met online. At first we talked and were there for each other just as friends. I had recently lost my nan and was finding it quite hard. He understood how it felt to lose a person that I loved with all my heart and he was there to listen to me when everybody else seemed not to care. Anyway we met in a public place on 8th Jan 05 and when he held me in his arms for the first time (just as friends) I fell in love. There was abit of trouble because I was just turning 16 and he was a mere 21 lol so my dad was a little worried but I'm glad he let me get on with it because on friday that day would have been 5 years ago and our wedding anniversary was yesterday and it had been 2 wonderful years of marriage. We have a 21month old & we are due our 2nd in 11 weeks today. He has given me everything that I dreamed I would never have, a husband, a home of our home with a mortgage and a beautiful girl with another on the way. I didn't ask for much but I got the world :) thanks for letting me share my story.

I had known of my husband through my niece & nephew. I then picked him up from the gutter of our local watering hole - just joking - he had been banned for a month & was sitting outside. Prior to that we had danced around each other for about 3 months him leaving with a different girl each time. I bided my time then asked him to my girlfriend's engagement party. Within 6 months I'd sold my house & moved in with him. within 12 months we were married & we have been together now for 8 years married for 7 years. When did I know he was the one - pretty much from the first look. I always said to him "love me love my dog" & boy did my dog love him. My dog even tricked me off the couch so that he could sit next to him.

I'm new to Circle of Moms, but I really like the fact that you ladies want to brag about your husbands. I really believe that the more you say something, the deeper you feel it. My husband and I met in junior high. He had just moved into the area with his mom and younger brother, and he was new to the school. My older sister and his older brother knew each other, and I suggested to his older brother that he come hang out with my friends until he made some of his own. He "dated" my best friend for a while, but he later told me he really wanted to hang out with me. In ninth grade he finally got up the courage, and we dated all through high school. When we graduated, we knew we wanted to get married, but we wanted to pay for it ourselves. So we both went to the same college so we could still see each other, and a year after we graduated from college we got married! We have two very sweet children, a 2-year-old daughter and a 9-month old son. We've been married six years. He is my hero, and I love him with all my heart :o)

I worked with my husband. We were both teachers at a high school in the south. Both being from the North, I think we were oddly drawn to each other. We were friends for awhile (almost a year) but we both knew it was more. I remember the day he came into my classroom just before a holiday break and said that he didn't want to just be friends anymore, he didn't want to go through the motions of early dating, but wanted to jump into a long term, commited relationship...he said I should take 2 weeks (the time of the break) to think about it before giving him an answer.....I didn't need to think, I knew he was the one too! We have been married for almost 10 years (together for 13) and have two beautiful children. I can honestly say that I am more in love with him now than I was 13 years ago and I was pretty in love with him then!

I met my hubby when I was 4 at one of our parents many band practices. It was NOT love at first sight, lol. I knew he was the one about 2 weeks after we started dating when I was 16, turns out, I was right :)

When I first met my husband he was dating a girl that I still consider a friend, she cheated on him and used him a lot and finally I just told her that what she was doing was wrong and she broke it off. During the time that she was with him of course I became close to him and I considered him to be a very close friend. Maybe I should mention that we were both still in High School. Thats right high school sweet hearts. And as corny as it is I knew BEFORE we were together that one way or another my life just wouldn't be the same without him. We have been married for a little over 2 years now and together for over 2. We got married on the same day that we first started dating and I still cant imagine being with anyone else. I seen the way that he had treated my friend when she was with him even though he knew what she was doing and realized that someone who could do that had to have an amazingly huge heart and he still treated her like a queen and she hurt him so bad. I wanted to make sure that no one ever did that to him again and we have been happy from day one. Crazy huh?

Hubby and I had been going to the same church and had given up on finding the right person. I had an almost 2 yr old dotter... he assumed I was married. I had been told he was a confirmed bachelor. One morning a friend introduced us. We said hi & went back to the conversations we were having. LOL At church service that nigth he was sorta coerced into taking me home. Mom & dad were going out of town til after the coming Wednesay and I was gonna need a ride to church so a common friend offered because the lived near us. Wednesday comes and who shows up...Hubby. He lives waaay North of me & had to drive 15 miles to pick me up. Off to church. After church we went for PIzza and went home with left overs. I think we talked for 3 hrs after in the driveway after we got to my house. Finally, I looked at him and said " if you don't ask I'm going to." his response was " I'd rather ask than answer. Will you marry me?" The rest is history. We knew each other for less than 3 months when we got married.

I'd just moved to Chicago and was having a miserable time of it. The people who lived in my apartment before me trashed the place so I had to wait for everything to be fixed before I could move in, I was living with my aunt in the meantime, I couldn't seem to find a good job and to top it all off my boyfriend broke up with me on Valentine's Day. I was not in the happiest of places and definitely not looking for another one of those "stupid men".



So, my cousin said to me, "Hey, come with me to the mall. I have a friend there you should meet." I figured I could pop out a few applications, so I went along. She took me into a Ritz Camera and behind the counter was this incredible hunk. He had these pretty honey colored eyes, a sexy muscular body and an incredibly genuine smile.



We started talking and I said that i was looking for a job. He immediately called his boss and got me a position, as simply as that! He then asked me if I would join him for a cigarette. I don't smoke, but my super sexy boss asked me to go with him for a cigarette, so I went. Wouldn't you?



While we were outside, he said, "Okay, now that I am out of the store and not your boss, will you go out for dinner with me tonight?"



I laughed and said, "Did you get me a job just because you wanted to ask me out?"



He replied, "No, I got you the job because you seem responsible and confident. I asked you out because you have gorgeous eyes." Isn't he slick? So, I said yes, but that I wanted to be the one to drive. I've always felt better having my own car on dates so that if the guy acts disrespectfully, I can ditch him and drive away easily.



I picked him up and just as we were going along my old as dirt car decided to die. There was snow up to the middle of the doors and I was so embarrassed, but without a blink, he climbed out of the car, popped the hood and fixed it, destroying (I found out later) a $400 suit in the process, just to help me. I think it was then that something told me, "this is it, girl. Don't mess it up!"



We've been pretty much inseparable ever since. Ten years this February!

Liz,

I also met my husband Paul online:-) LOL. Back then I was still living in New York and he was living Fontana California. A recent male friend of mine online one night asked me into a private chat room, and then after only minutes asked me if it was ok to ask another female in as well, whom brought Paul with her into the chat. Back then my screen name was Slowhand 142, his was Glaver 1950, and topic came up about being 100 per female and I said I was to, and two minutes later Paul texed me HELLO in comic scans and I just KNEW he was my soul mate. Come to find out, we both left the room and just chatted with one another. I told him about me having a disabities and gave him a web site to read up on what I have to deal with and he wrote back that it didn't matter..... weeks turned into a few months, and though at that time he was going though his divorce, I asked him to marry me... and then waited... two minutes later, he wrote back YES!!! in 20 font:-) Soul Mates. I had NOT seen a picture of him until a few days before he flew out to actually met me in person in August 2001, and the next day, I was packing my car and moving to Fontana with him. It wasn't what he looked like that drew me to him, but at everything he said form his heart that I knew. Been together 8 years and married for 7 and God's blessing:-)

I met my husband in 1997 at a cancer benefit dance for my sister Sheri, who at age 27, had colon cancer. He volunteered to help the band move their equipment for the dance. I was immediately smitten with him because he was wearing a really nice shirt and he was handsome. We were engaged about 2 months after meeting. I had 2 small children from a previous marriage and the first night my kids met him, my daughter who was only 5 years old, asked him, "are you going to marry my momma?"

We married on July 11, 1997 and my sister passed away from cancer 5 days later. She told me before she died, "you owe me one Becky, cause if I hadn't gotten sick, you probably wouldn't have met him." She was right, I do owe her a BIG one. And every single day when I wake, I thank my sister for helping me land the greatest husband/father I could have ever asked for....

I don't know if this is romantic but the first time I saw him was my first day at my new job. When the boss took me to him for him to train me on a machine I knew when I looked into his eyes and he introduced himself, it was gonna be a great job. Then he told me he was married. Sad I know so about 2 years later apparently they were having major marital probs and he had spoken of me to his wife and she hated me and couldn't wait to see me. So at a company Christmas party she was there and we met and they got into a huge fight I had no idea what was going on but their marriage was over that night. He's always told me it was over before they even got there.Sounds bad but I love him so much and we've been together 5 years and had a beautiful little girl and life just keeps on getting better.

When I was 17, I made ice cream cones for Cook's Dairy Bar where my future husband was a customer. I made 90 cents an hour, but ahhhh the benefits...of meeting the man of my dreams! It didn't take long before we fell in love. We've been married 39 years now.

I met my husband on April 29, 2000 while working at an electronic parts factory on the weekend night shift. I was a single mom, going to school full time and working full time. He asked me out to lunch when we got off work (the shift was 11pm to 11am). We were both just out of bad break ups where we were both engaged, and neither of us was looking for "the one". We both just wanted a friend to hang out with. Well, we went out to lunch after work and 20 minutes into our very first conversation, I knew this was the man I was going to marry. So, on Oct. 7, 2000 we got married and have been together every since. I love my husband dearly. Marriage is not easy, but you get out of it what you put into it. He is my best friend, and my hero. Currently, he is serving our country in Iraq for the second time, but I love him more and more everyday. He goes out of his way to make me feel special and loved even from halfway across the earth.

I met my husband at his mother's house. So wild of a story. I was a single mother of 3 for 7 and half years I was blessed with our first brand new home, we were settled and all moved in, one of my daughter's freinds from our old subdivision had talked to my daughter and said I really want to come spend the night with you in your new house, she was at her grandmothers at the time not all that far away from our community, so I needed directions, well her Uncle Donnie was the one to give me directions to his mother's home. He was so nice and polite with a very nice voice and I said thank you and we were on our way. Well when we arrived he was working outside in the garage and driveway and the way the sun hit the car that day I could see him but he could not see me, I immediatley thought he was handsome and said so to my daughter then her friend got in the car and I said hey is your uncle single? I thought for sure he would be already taken. His niece began to chuckle and said he had asked questions about me too from just our phone conversation. Well then she gave me his cell phone number and let him know too and well we talked for hours that very evening, that same week he came to my front door step with flowers in hand, dressed sharp, smelling good with an adorable smile and I just melted. WE talked and clicked and saw each other almost every day until we decided to get married in less than 3 months. Been married over 3 years now and even though we both married young we both had three children each it's like we were meant to be. When I stopped looking on my own, gave it ALL to GOD the Lord brought us to each other in a way I NEVER expected. Funny thing was all those years I knew his mother, sister and nieces they used to live around the corner from me and they just never mentioned him to me. He is my bestfriend, lover & truly my soul mate! No doubt about it.

I met Cory through my family and friends... He was older so I liked that! And we just started hanging out, I attended his wrestling matches, and hit it off from there! He is such a fun person! The first thing I fell in love with.... was his smile! And that's still my favorite thing about him! He has my Heart : )

My husband and I were also high school sweethearts but our story took a circuitous route....

As he is two years older, when he graduated, he moved away....through time and distance, he eventually went on with his life as I was then forced to also do by going away to college. Interestingly enough, we NEVER saw each other when he visited home even though clearly we would at times be home during vacations, holidays, etc.

I did hear that he got married and joined the army. I went on to grad school and started working and sort of kept up with news of him from time to time...I did get married also and had a couple of kids with a guy I thought would fill that empty space but he proved not to be the man I thought he was and when he left the boys and me, I set out to simply be a single parent and raise my boys. Then, one day, about two years after my divorce, as I was looking for a former class mate on reunion.com, I saw my former sweetheart's name online. Oddly, enough, he had joined that site to look up a former army buddy. We both reported later that it was a spur of the moment thing to sign up and pay the fee because we were seriously interested in finding 'that' person...not each other...I reached out to him first to let him know I saw his name since he would not have known my married name...This was our first communication with each other in over 30 years!!! He, too, had been divorced for about 5 year. So, we emailed and chatted online for several months. Then we realized that we would be home for the 4th of July and I invited him to my mom's to say hi. When I saw him, it was as if we had both been propelled back in time. He looked the same and he commented that I had not changed either. Clearly, we had that same chemistry so made plans to reconnect whenever we could as he was looking to retire from the military in a couple of years.

When he came by for that first visit, it was like I was 16 all over again. We talked for hours and it was very difficult to say good bye. Within the next 6 months we talked and emailed daily and by year's end we were engaged. I talked to my boys about the possibility of me getting remarried and they both said they wanted me to be happy. My then 8 year old stated simply, "you need to get married because I need a dad". I spoke to his children--all grown--who gave their whole-hearted endorsement as well. They were thrilled to know their dad was in love again. By that next April, we were married and about 6 months later, he was retired from the military. We will celebrate 5 years of marriage next April. The basis for our love is our mutual love and devotion to our Lord and we don't make any decisions without prayer.

I can count the times we have had cross words because we are so committed to be a living example of how Christ wants a marriage to reflect his relationship to the church. We both protect each other's heart with all our might and spend every moment of this second chance proving and showing our love for one other. My prayer is that everyone can find this same joy in a meaningful, committed and loving relationship.

My husband and I are high school sweethearts. I was in love the moment I met him. He is such an intelligant, caring loving and funny person. He buys me flowers for no reason, he nevers lets me open my own door, he cleans off my car, holds my hand going up the stairs. One time in high school, I will never forget this, we were walking through a muddy grass and he picked me up and carried me so I wouldn't get muddy! He always puts my feelings and best interests before his own. I could never imagine my life without him. My husband has been my greatest blessing and Im so proud to be married to him. We have been together for almost 7 years, married for 2 1/2 years. We also have a beautiful 1 1/2 year old daughter together.
