We Got On the Same Page
We Got On the Same Page
07/01/2013



Recently, my husband and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary and I owe it to your advice over the years leading up to and including my marriage. 

We had a long bumpy relationship, but I started listening to you and most of our problems were worked out because of your advice - I have many detailed stories that include you!

We had shacked up and when I told him I would like to be married, he shocked me by saying that he did not want to be married again and take the chance of losing all his "stuff". I did not give an ultimatum or get upset, I just told him we were not on the same page and I did not want his stuff - I wanted to be his wife.

I was sad, but I knew I did not want to waste another five or six years waiting for him to change his mind. So, I looked into renting a cute little house for my cat and me. I never mentioned my plan to him. 

A couple of days later, I came home and he sat me down and told me that he did want to marry me and got down on one knee. I told him it was the wrong knee and he got up and got down on the other one. I don't think there is a "correct" knee to use while proposing; I just thought I would mess with him.

Anyway, two weeks later in my parents' backyard we got hitched with just a couple of good friends and close family. Our reception was at a bar! 

So, thank you for all you do. You truly have made a difference in my life and continue to do so. I wish I could tell you about all the other times in which you helped me along the way to a happy, healthy marriage.
