Married at Valentine's Day
February 14, 2017 12:36am CST
Yes, you read that right. I married for the wrong reasons, still married, waiting for it to become perfect. Hahaha! I was already 6 months pregnant when I proposed to the father of my child that if he wanted his name to be on the birth certificate then we have to make it legal. He agreed, no fancy engagement rings as I was saving for the birth of my daughter. I chose the date of St Valentine's so hubby would remember. I will never forget how bad he was with dates, can't readily remember his children's birthdays, he had 5. Our first argument was.. he forgot my birthday when I asked him one day, after knowing each other for a few months, we asked our birthdays when we met and I did remember his, but he forgot mine! Unforgivable, but obviously, I forgave him. Anyway, it was just a registry office civilian wedding. We were both divorced from our first spouses and we have 7 young kids between us, 5 for him and 2 for me. We're still together, despite our daughter being stillborn. It's now 21 years married, 25 years of friendship and still going. Are you good with dates?

I am very good with dates, I even remember those that are not important at all and I never miss to wish happy birthday to my friends, without checking the calendar. My husband remembers my birthday as he remembers very well the day we married, it's easy, 2 days after Christmas. Happy Anniversary to both of you.

Me too, I know my immediate family and close friends birthdays, those that are important to me. I keep a birthday book too. I'm glad that hubby remembers the dates that are important to you. Thank you for your greetings. I hope that you had a good day too.
