Where did you meet you wife or husband and how long did you wait to get married

  1. I thought of this from the husband rant, I figured since we like to rant sometimes and other times we just Love who we are with this would be an interesting topic. With that said I guess that makes me the one to start off. I have been married for close to 11 yrs now and I first met my wife at McDonalds when me and some friends went there to eat. Well while I was sitting there I noticed this cute lady dressed up in a Ronald McDonald outfit (big red nose, red curly hair and the big red shoes, you know the whole outfit). Well I thought she was cute in the outfit so I proceeded over and asked her if she would go out with me. She looked at me for a few seconds (probably trying to figure out whether I was psycho) and then she said yes she would go out with me. I found myself two months later standing in front of the alter saying my vows and have been with her every since. Now there have been the hard times and there have been the great times but overall I wouldn't trade my decision for the world. Tom

    We met on spring break 1992, got engaged December 1993 and married August 1994. Probably would've done it sooner but we were both in college in different states. He's a gem - wouldn't trade him for the world!

    We met in a bar in Yellowstone Park. Shacked up for a couple of years. Will celebrate 18 years this December.

    She actually found me. Hired me as an accompaniest for her cabaret act that existed at that time.

    Lived together for about a year before getting married.

    Been married 17 years.

    We sat next to each other as telephone switchboard operators at the University of Iowa Hospital back when we were both students. We used to play chess during the slow times. Got to know each other chatting between handling calls. Took about 6 months to decide we were madly in love. Moved in together as soon as logistically possible, and got married about a year after that. We will celebrate our 20th anniversary in June.

    In a trauma room

    Yessir he (a fireman) walked in one of the trauma rooms where I was taking care of one of his buddies. They had been out on a working fire and the ceiling had collapsed. Thankfully his buddy wasn't hurt too bad. But Ron had on his turnout gear and I almost fainted. Increased HR, increased resp, flushed face, diaphoretic. Man I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Anyway - 8 years and three kids later I still feel that way.:kiss

    We got married about 2 1/2 years after we met in business college. He was and still is my sweetheart and best friend. In 2 weeks will be our 38th anniversary.

    I used to work with my husband (he was married to someone else at the time). Two years later we're at a christmas party. He's divorced, so I asked him out. We got married two months after our first date. That was 12 years ago. I just love that man! Hope my kids wait longer, though.

    Met my darling hubby on a blind date (actually a group date). I got in the car next to him and I was blinded by his stunning blue eyes!!

    I always said I'd have to know someone at least six months before even CONSIDERING marriage!. We were married six months after we met!!

    We've been married five years, the best years of my life!

    My clinical instructor, who is DH's sister, hooked us up on a blind date right before graduation. He professed his undying devotion for all eternity the next day...then I let him have some a week later....got married a week after that. Two years later, he and I deliriously happy with our house in the 'burbs and dog.

    I never thought I would do such a thing, it just happened that way. Neither of us were looking for commitment. Funny how life works...

    Met my Hubby when I looked after his grandad on my 1st surgical ward as a Student nurse - I was 19!

    He asked me out and we went out for 6 months. But he got serious and I didnt want commitment then so we split.

    3 years later as I was having my hair permed at my hairdressers - he walks past the window and spots me. (he was a Policaman and was on his lunch break!) So i asked him out (after checking he was single!!!). We got engaged 5 months later(August 1991) and got married October1992.

    It was just a shame that his grandad had died before we got back together and so never saw us get married. (but i am sure he was there in spirit)

    So nearly made the 11 year mark and have 2 gorgeous boys and planning a new life in Florida soon. Couldnt be happier!:kiss

    We met our junior year in high school. I was best friends with the sister of his best friend. We dated and then we went our seperate ways. That was 1984, we got back together a little before our high school reunion. Got married in 96, would do it again. And you know his friend......lives just a few miles away even though we don't live at all close (or ever the same state for that matter)to that high school.

    Lesseee....lived with a demon, moved home, swore off men completely and vowed to abstain from all physical interludes that couldn't be accomplished either alone or with the help of batteries. Technically met online on a local BB, he convinced me to move back home, dump Lucifer, and go back to college. Begged to meet me, I said Heeeeeeeeelllll NO, pestered the crap out of my best friend. I got his number, didn't want to call him or have to meet him IRL. Was driving one night, said WTHeck, called him from a payphone. I could HEAR his grin over the phone, he was a total sweetheart, we ended up dating shortly thereafter. Big mistake- it tok me a year to be decent to him because I was so shattered by what had happened in my previous relationship. Also, lived to regret the vow of abstinence because he was cute as all get out, big, sparkly-puppy-eyed teddy bear of a guy, and the instant I was alone with him, I was practically begging him to kiss me and otherwise abuse me. He pushed me off again and again for months, insisting that it was what *I* had said I'd wanted (which I had, but shoot, can't a girl change her mind?). We were married three years later. We just had our third wedding anniversary which we both completely forgot about until almost a week later, but we're still madly in love even if I do fantasize about indulging in bisexuality and living alone in a loft apartment with two cats sometimes. Ahh, luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv.
