We met May 22, 2 days before I turned 22. He moved in a few weeks later, asked me to marry him July 31. that was in 96. We got married in 2000. We've been thru some craziness. We lost jobs, had to declare bankruptcy, had a daughter 3 1/2 months premature. She lived 23 days. We had a DS 6 1/2 weeks premature. He was in the hospital for 21 days. He's 6. Had DS 3 months premature after a medically exciting pregnancy and finally c section because my blood pressure sky rocketed.
We feel like we've been thru enough and now neither of us will leave/cheat/lie/slack. We're really honest with each other and laugh a LOT.
Oh my, you have been through a lot. It sounds like troubles really did make you and your marriage stronger. Wonderful "success" story!
