My husband and I were bf/gf when we met at church and were in Jr. High (14 yrs me/13 him) for one week and broke up. We met again at a mutual friend's wedding (19 me/18him) dated for 3 months became officially together and 3 months later eloped. We had a very difficult time at first, went through divorce proceedings during my preganancy with 1st son. After his birth, we decided to reconcile before the divorce was able to become final. After my 2nd son was born, things started getting extremely better for us. We now have two High School children and have had many ups and downs as a marriage does, but we love each other greater now for going through everything together. We're still very much attracted to each other. Just experiencing a different phase in careers and raising young adults now that brings different challenges in a marriage. Its hard to explain until you're in it. We both have to work at keeping the spice, excitement, intrigue in our marriage, but its getting easier and we're fairly young still to enjoy each other more. I never regret having my children, there are moments in our marriage I wish could've been different, but I believe our experiences together is what has made our bond stronger and dependent on each other. I love and appreciate my husband more now, than when I first married him.

I was 3 months shy of 23 when we met, and he had just turned 22. We were together for 1 month before we were engaged. We were married after having been together for 11 months. Our first child was born 2 months after our first anniversary. We now have 3 beautiful daughters, and have been married for 11 years.

I`m not married yet but I am getting married. My boyfriend and I got together on November 21, 2002 and we are getting engaged this year on November 21, 2006. Then I want to get married on November 21, 2007. I think that`d be great. We`ve been together four years and want to get engaged on our anniversary. I feel like it`s not going fast enough! I`m so excited.
