How did you know that your husband was the One? How’d you know you wanted to get married?
An informal survey of women between the ages of 24 and 65 produced some very interesting stories. Here are a few of the ones that struck a cord with me.
How I Knew I Wanted to Marry Him: Women Speak Out
“He is the second person I ever went out with and I am the only person he ever went out with and it just felt right. Been married 34 years this coming August.” ~Laura
“The moment I saw Mark from across the room I knew I wanted to marry him. I even told one of my best friends at the time that I was going to marry him some day. That was on December 12th, 1994. I was 17 and he was 23. Four kids and over 16 years of marriage later, we still say I love you at least 10 or more times a day, even if we are arguing.” ~Amanda
“I told my mom the first time I saw Robert that I would marry him. We had a great friendship during our journalism workshop and that made things even better when we started dating. I just always felt a strong connection to him and I think being friends somehow gets us through the rough spots but we’re 10+ years together and almost 3 years married and looking forward to the 5, 10, 15, 20+ year marks.” ~Aja
“For me, it was that he made me feel like my life was complete when i was with him. I knew he was someone I could grow old with. I feel so blessed any lucky to have him and he still gives me butterflies. This is my second marriage and i finally got it right. He makes me happy.” ~Shelly
“I knew I wanted to marry my husband when I caught him playing Barbies with my 2 year old daughter. At least he was playing with the Ken doll.” ~Lisa
“We went on a road trip together that took us to about eight different states. At one point, we had to drive through West Virginia for hours and hours and hours in the pouring rain. We didn’t get to our hotel until after midnight. We didn’t argue once — that’s how I knew we were meant to be together.” ~Leigh
“I felt like I could breathe when I was with Marco. I didn’t have to “be” anything. I could just be. He was so laid back and cool with everything and not wound up. He was my polar opposite, my balance. Being with him made any other relationship feel like it had been in another life almost. It’s hard to describe and it’s something I’d never felt before meeting him.” ~Sarah
