I assume this question is for *well*-married people. I bet there are many poorly married people or ex-marrieds who just whiffed past this post!

I can recall the first time I saw her clear as day. What she was wearing, how she was sitting, the chair she was in, the look on her face when we first saw each other. That was 35 years, 7 months and 27 days ago.
I was hooked deep from the moment we looked each other in the eye.
Life's a dance and you learn as you go.
I feel sorry for folks who never get to experience growing old together and growing more in love each day.
I do not have the vocabulary or writing skills to express how I feel for her......
I hope you find this love...

It was immediate. I'm not kidding you. I went alone to the party, she came with a blind date. The moment I shook hands with her the first time, it was as if a door opened and all I had to do was step through it. Our first date was a week later. We were engaged in three months, married within ten. Anniversary #24 coming up.

I think that I instinctively knew the first night I met my husband. I met him at a bar through his friend, whom was the guy that changed my oil at the mechanic's place I went too. The friend was trying to hit on me and I just asked him who he came with that night and he pointed to the bar where a line of his friends were lined up. My DH was the sitting at the last seat and I saw him and clearly remember thinking, "I want THAT one", LOL.

We were introduced and talked for hours and then when I was leaving I turned back to look at him and he was staring at me and smiling. I still can recall the feeling it gave me to see him looking at me that night and when we've gone through difficult times I try to remember that night, 14 years ago.

When I got to know what a good person my wife was I knew I had a keeper. I know a lot of people who have issues in their marriages or ended up divorced and I am grateful to have stability and security in my home life.

With my second husband, I knew we were a truly great match immediately. We married two months to the day later. First anniversary is next week.

I once felt like that about my ex-husband too. Sure don't feel like that about him anymore.

It's great though for all of you who are still happy together many years later. That's how it is supposed to be.

It was pretty fast. We started dating in early October. I had a few casual partners and potential dating prospects in the weeks leading up to us getting together and pretty much within the first week made some courtesy calls to let them know I had found someone I wanted to really pursue. We started talking marriage I'd say about a month or so in, and by mid December we were engaged.

Just want to add that I almost married two other men prior to marrying my husband. With the other two - I thought they were the one. With my husband, I knew he was the one. I'm not sure I would have known how it feels to know you are with the right person if I hadn't felt it for myself.
