I really don’t think you need to go that into detail. You’re not describing HOW you met, you’re describing your personal relationship circumstances around the time that you met.

So how’d you meet? In a bar? Through friends? Online?

Stay positive with your story. I’d personally be fine with whatever timeline he wanted to use so that it didn’t create drama in your lives. It really doesn’t matter at this point, and it helps him save face/prevent craziness. Don’t underestimate HIS need to save face – he was dating someone else while someone in another country thought they were still together and he wasn’t being firm with her, if I’m understanding correctly.

I’d just stick to HOW you met and not who you were/weren’t dating and their perception of it when you met.

Wow…this is one, big elaborate lie! How about if you guys just say that you started off as friends while he was overseas and you eventually realized your feelings for each other? Why do you have to give them a specific timeline of when everything occurred?

Also…does his ex know that you guys got married? B/c it’s a little weird that she still thinks that the two of them are together when he’s already married to you?

Yeah these details shouldn’t come up in normal conversation– who cares what month you met him?  You’re married now and that’s what matters.

@texasbee:  I agree with you, now that you’re married you can tell them the truth if you want to.

I would just tell the truth. but maybe not every little details since it’s unnecessary.
