- Wedding: May 2012
My husband and I met first in highschool. He was a junior and I was a freshman, we all know how highschool is. We met when I was going through all of the shops, considering that I was in a technical school – trying to pick what I wanted to do most. This lovely gentleman changed my life forever, the first time I met him. Well, to make the story a bit shorter – I picked the shop that he was in, Graphic Arts. It dealt with press operating, pre-press, photography, video editing, and a bit more. It was something that I had hoped to make a career out of some day in my life, whether it be right out of school or down the road. We hit it off right away, we were really good friends, and then eventually started dating…after he had already dated a few girls before me in the shop. When we dated, it was mostly short lived due to the fact that my Stepdad had a very hard time trusting me and anyone that I had dated. We couldn’t ever hang out and having a relationship based off text messages and phone calls really wasn’t working quite well. He broke up with me, telling me that he wanted to be with someone that he can be invited to a family dinner. Obviously, that wasn’t me and we didn’t make it last – but we remained friends for the rest of his highschool time, and then after he had left.
We lost touch a few times, due to me having other boyfriends in between. He had joined the Army and we talked while he was away. No matter what, we really always came back to one another – hoping that things could work out for us. When I graduated, he was still in the Army and living in Germany then, with a girlfriend. I had texted him alot, he texted back when he could. Then he finally came home. He didn’t change that much, still the same Casey – but much more respectful and dignified. I seen him once before he came home – but we only made eachother jealous with our words, instead of just being happy to see eachother. When he came around and messaged me on facebook, telling me that he was home to stay due to a shoulder injury while in Germany – and said it would be nice for me to text him. I was kind of mad that he would text me like that, but we began to keep in touch immediately.
I’d say that it was an easy transition to start talking to him again, but when I had drunk texted him on New Years Eve – saying that mine had been ruined and I didn’t get to kiss anyone while fireworks were going off, he did something completely unexpected. He told me he would be right over, that his friend was going to drive him to me…we were both pretty wrecked by the time he got there. When he did, he texted me letting me know he was outside, I couldn’t believe it when I came outside to delightfully see that he was actually there. I think that if it wasn’t for the alcohol in our systems, it just wouldn’t have been the same, but we had liquid courage and could honestly do what we both knew we’d wished would have happened sooner. He sat down on the porch and I sat on his lap – facing one another, it seemed all in slow motion. He started to kiss me, slow and passionately, like he had to kiss me to survive. I did the same, because I did need him. He just didn’t know it.
After that night, it was almost awkward to text him then. But eventually we got back in touch, knowing it was what needed to happen. Then, for the second time he dropped everything, and left work to take me to Build a Bear, because I texted him I wanted to go. It was adorable. We went on many more dates after that. And clinged to one another. After that, he eventually moved into my parents house with me – but we got kicked out shortly after, we got a house in March of 2012 and then soon after, we got engaged.
We didn’t want to wait for an actual wedding because we were both so excited. So, we got a self appointed marriage license and had our friends sign it and boom. I was a Mrs. Our families were both shocked that we didn’t wait to get married and were a little upset we didn’t tell them, but they did get over it rather quickly. Eventually, we started having troubles. Small but sure and then a big problem that was caused by me. We almost got divorced because of what I did, but instead chose to work it out because we knew that we loved one another and our lives wouldn’t be the same after that. His family no longer talks to me anymore because of that, it makes it very difficult.
We’re both really young still, but we’re going to make it. He is my best friend and my lover. We’ve come so far now and are happily married. He is my infinity, just like our tattoos. On our ring fingers we have the infinity symbol, to show that our love is infinite and everlasting and true.
I want to plan an actual wedding, the perfect wedding for us. A soulmate wedding and festival. I love him to death.
What I really want to know though, is if you think our love is going to be everlasting and true. We are only 20 and 22 years old, me being the younger one. We’ve been through so much together and we can get through it all. We’ve been through everything together.
Do you think it will last?
