Ive been married for 11 years now.Originally Posted by blasie;3345594;
My wife and I met through our 10 yr high school reunion committee. I was in her class but didnt know her then very well.
I knew after our first date I would marry her. 4 weeks later we eloped. And to keep our anniversary straight in our heads we got married in a church with our family present exactly 1 year to the day. I still mess up and say its our 11th yr when the family thinks 10.
I cant put my finger on anything specific. I dated dozens of girls from college till I met my wife 10 years later. None of them made me think about them like my wife did.
That intangible is something not easily defined but I did my best when I proposed to my wife. I said to her "you are the last thing I think of when I fall asleep and you are the first thing I think of when I awake"
11 years and yeah the passion isnt like it was. But we love each other and remain best friends.
