I met my first wife through my cousin and we dated for 6 months, moved in together, got engaged after a year and a half when she was 7 months pregnant. Divorced 7 years later.

Met my second wife at a bar, moved her and her 11 yr old son in with me and my 2 oldest daughters 8 months later, she became pregnant with out daughter after 2 years and got married when our daughter was 2. We have been married 11 years this coming August and I see many more years to be added to it even though I can't stand her....some of the time...lol

I figure it isn't worth trading her known issues in on unknown issues to learn all over again. I have had her in training for the last 2 years so I guess she will be ready for the long haul in another 20 once our 12 yr old daughter is out on her own. i say that knowing my 21 yr old daughter and her 2 yr old son recently moved back in with us.. haha

We dated for 1.5 months before we said we wanted to marry each other. Officially engaged after 7 months together. Married 1 year 4 months after that. We've been married for almost 1.5 years now and are very happy...most of the time. ;)

Rich and I met on New Years Eve 2006/2007. He asked me to marry him 6 years to the day after that - this past New Years.

My husband and I dated for 4 years, moved in together for 4 more and then got engaged. We'll have been married for 22 years in Nov.
