These were the first words my wife ever said to me. LOL of course, she wasn't my wife at the time. This is our story, I was shipping and receiving manager at a hotel, and she had picked up a second job as a server in the Indian restaurant in the hotel, it was her first day and she'd come in early to train, but had left her headlights on. Which, of course drained her battery. Now, after running around with some friends looking for a pair of jumper cables, she came back to the hotel, and i was at the front desk, and she walked up to me and asked me to jump her! LOL then, after removing her foot from her mouth, she explained the situation to me, as i was for once struck speechless by her request. That's how we met. After several months of friendship, we got involved in a relationship, and now, and for the last four years, been married. That's our story..what's yours?

were you frightened of the arranged marriage? I mean i know that's probably a tradition where you are, but weren't you frightened as well as curious? It was a complete fluke my wife and i meeting, i guess i should say again, because i had met her while we were in high school before i moved several states away. I remembered her, although she was at work when she met me so i guess my face didn't stick. But it's funny how things work out sometimes.

My first romantic words to my, now, ex-wife were "hey, you wanna"? She and I had known each other for several years, and already knew that there was something there. One night, at my sister's b-day party, we were all in our living room and the ex had decided to lay on me and use me as a pillow. I started rubbing her hair and she looked up at me, and smiled. At that point, we both just 'knew', so I leaned in and asked her - "hey, you wanna ... ummm" and she just smiled and said yes. We held hands all night. I stayed awake, the entire night, held her in my arms, and just watched her sleep. That was how I first asked her out and it was only appropriate that it was how I asked her to marry me...lol! She agreed then, too...
