  • Wedding: May 2019 - City, State

I met my fiance when I was around 13 and he was 12. I met him at my taekwondo studio, I was a few belts higher than him – I actually always helped out in his younger brothers’ classes. For whatever reason I was filling in for someone else in a class for older kids and he happened to be in it. I honestly didn’t take much notice of him at first, he was just another student, then he was just another coworker. It wasn’t until the summer I turned 16, we were working a lot together doing summer camps and he had just gotten a haircut and shaved his patchy beard (so he no longer looked like Shaggy from Scooby Doo) that I was like damn boy you’re cute! We dated for a while, then broke up and didn’t talk much for a couple years. We reconnected the summer before my senior year of college, and we’ve been together ever since.

  • Wedding: March 2019

We were both 24! We met at work under prettt dramatic circumstances… long story short I was working in retail while I was completing my post-grad, and there was a shooting at the mall. He was the health and safety coordinator (I had never seen or met him before this night) and was present after the incident. I was going to take a cab home that night but he insisted on driving me. We started dating 4 or 5 months later!

  • Wedding: February 1997

I am awful with dates, and last time there was a thread regarding how long between dating and marriage I said less than a year, but in fact we were together about 19 months before we were married. I was 25 and Dh was 22 when we met. He was (what I consider) VERY young, but he has always been far more more mature and ready to settle down than I was – a born “family man” – and was ready to commit far sooner than I was.

  • Wedding: August 2016

We were both 18 when we met.

We met when a girl on my dorm floor said she met a cute guy on the floor below and I said we should invite him to hang out. When I knocked on his door my husband came out of the next room over thinking someone had knocked on his door. I thought he was hot so invited him along too! We have been pretty much inseparable from that moment forward and have been together for over 10 years now.

  • Wedding: November 2019

We met when we were 5.  Went to school together.   Were friends but lost touch except for Facebook after high school.   Reconnected less than a year ago.  I’m not letting him get away a second time.

  • Wedding: June 2020

We were 15 when we met. I was a sophomore in high school when he was a freshman. We both played the alto saxophone. I honestly don’t even remember knowing him until the following year when I submitted his picture for the yearbook and thought he had a great smile. 

We started talking and later dating at 17, during my senior year of high school. Over 5 years later, we’re still going strong!

We met in high school. I forget which class but he remembers what I was wearing and the teachers name. Impressive. Haha 

We have been great friends and are finally dating in our mid 30s. Everyone says it’s about damn time haha
