I’m not sure there was an exact moment, more like a timeframe of 6 months to a year of dating.  We argued about something and I remember thinking that not only would we work this out but I really want to work it out with this guy, and I will continue working things out for the rest of my life because I want to be with him.

LOL, I think we were dating for just a month when we both realized we were going to get married. We of course didn’t act on it! But we are coming up on our 6 year anniversary next month, and getting married in 2 months, and our thoughts/feelings have only gotten stronger! Isn’t it crazy how when you know, you know?

I had been divorced for a long time and living very independently for over 10 year, it was hard for me to live with someone and I kept running away. I did that 3 times once a year for 3 months at a time then run back to him. The third time I ran back was when I knew. If I can try to leave 3 times and want him back (and he takes me back) he is the one. No one lasted more than 6 months for 10 years till I met him. 🙂 Strange I know.

I have an exact moment. We were going to cut down a christmas tree for my house. I got us woefully lost, Mr. LK and my DS were good naturedly teasing me for my oopsie, and I realized in that moment that my life was complete. There was nothing else in the world that I wanted more than to spend my life getting lost with this man and laughing with my little family.

I’ve always known. Even though when we met, I was engaged to someone else, I knew my Fiance was the one I wanted to marry. From our very first date, I struggled with being in love with him even though I was dating someone else. It all worked out in the end…now we have 32 days left until we’re married for time and all eternity. 🙂

I was just discussing this topic this past weekend with my Future Mother-In-Law.. I dont’ remember thinking “I could marry this guy,” right away.. but I do remember thinking, “Wow, I could really fall in love with this guy,” pretty early on in our relationship. We said I love you about 4 months in… I was only 22 when we started dating.. so not looking to get married.. but I’d say about a year into the relationship I knew I wanted to marry him.. roped him into buying a house with me, then he was stuck with me lol

oh man.   Really early on.  When we met, I was going to grab a coffee and he was sitting on the patio of the coffee shop, the sun just hit him the right way, and as I opened the door he looked up and smiled.  And after serial dating the wrong men, I thought “Why can’t I meet a man like that” .. and then I did. 

But it was about a month into the relationship, we decided to go camping for the long weekend.   As a coordinator, I meticulously planned it all out.   Except i had no idea that you need to book camping spots about a year in advance, so we showed up and it was sold out and turned us away.   2 hrs back to my place and he was the sweetest thing ever, not upset at all.   It was a full moon and we drank wine in the back yard and danced in the moonlight.   I was feeling no pain and looked at him and said “marry me”.   He laughed we kissed.  He didn’t propose until almost 2 yrs later, but we both knew this was it.

When it dawned on me that the thought of imagining ever being without him is unfathomable to me.

I knew I thought I wanted to marry him from the 3rd year of dating.

I knew without a doubt I wanted to marry him after our 5th anniversary. I got really sick and had a number of trips to the hospital. After the 3rd (unexpected) trip he showed up at the hospital with a duffle bag filled with comfy clothes, magazines, books, fruit, and bottles of Boost (it’s like Ensure). He curled up with me on the bed and the look of love and concern in his eyes was more than anything I could describe. At that moment I knew he was it for life.

His high school graduation party. We were in the basement with all his friends and young relatives having a great time. I’d never seen him around young kids before (we’d been together for ~3 months, already said the “L” word by now) and his two little girl cousins were there. At on point he had one of them upside down and was tickling her while she giggled. The younger sister was hanging on his leg trying to get him to pick HER up and tickle her. He was just a complete natural around them.

It just hit me all at once that he would be such a great father to ‘our’ kids one day and I knew then that I wanted that life with him more than anything else.

The moment I laid eyes on him; I was speechless!

It mostly came on very slowly, but we had a huge snowstorm in Philly one December. We had off work because of the storm, and decided to take a walk through the storm to go see Avatar at a theatre a little less than a mile away. We slugged through thigh-deep snow drifts, bent over into the wind, nearly blinded by the snow. When we finally got to the theatre, we were both red-faced and beaming at each other, and I knew I was going to spend the rest of my life with him. Funny enough, that was the same moment he knew! He told me that I looked so happy that I was going to burst (which was about how I felt!)

For me I think really early on, I knew I wanted to marry him.  I saw something in his heart that I have not seen in anyone else, and he still surprises me.  He is my best friend!
