    What was worse was, we flew to Vegas on a Friday morning and got married on Saturday. Called my parents Saturday evening to let them know we did it! My mom "sounded" so happy she cried. Flew back Sunday night and Monday morning my mom calls and tells me my grandmother (her mother), died Friday morning right after I had left for the airport. She didn't want to let me know because she had a feeling we were getting married and didn't want me to cancel. So when I called Saturday, she didn't tell me because she didn't want to ruin my wedding day.

    It was very bitter sweet. My grandmother died on August 20th 2004. I got married August 21st 2004 and never knew she had passed. Some family members felt I deserved it.
    Oh I hope I didn't upset you, that was not my intention. I'm sorry you have to endure such heartache.

    @JennieS Oh no, you didn't upset me. I just get a little shaken up whenever I think about everything that happened. My own fault for not being able to let it go.

    But anyway, thanks for sharing your story. It was definitely meant to be for you guys.

    I met my wife on a blind date on June 6th 1992. I was 19 and in my aviation school for the Marines and my future wife was 18 and on summer break before her senior year of high school. I was definitely not looking for anything serious as I had only recent;y came out of a long term engagement to my high school sweetheart. Anywho... I buddy had a date with a girl who had a friend with a car and he asked me to go. I told him no because i had to study for a big test that I needed to pass the next day so I could get out of remedial school on Saturdays and get my weekends back. Well... I finally gave in when he said he would buy me a few cases of beer and the thought or me not having to drive him around was an added bonus. The night we had was amazing. It wasn't so much what we did as it was the simplicity of it all. I am one that like to go over the top with things not because i feel that i have to but because I want to and just chilling at a pool hall was a nice change of pace. Things were awkward at first but as the night went on we started opening up to each other more and more. Around midnight we dropped my buddy and her friend off and we went back to her place and talked all night long. Before i knew it 6am was upon us and i had to be at school in 30 minutes. So much for studying but i still passed my test..... Anyhow we continued to see each other every day as much as we could for the next few weeks before and for our official first date I actually put my Dress Blues on. Sadly I had to have the hard conversation with her that I would be leaving in a few months once i was finished with school. To my surprise she proposed to me at that time. Naturally her dad and stepmom were hesitant at first but they could see the love, but her mom hated me from the get go because I was a Marine. When all was said and done in 3 short week we managed to put our wedding together and we got married July 31st 1992 and will celebrate 22 years this year. This is the abridged version and there is more to the story with some of it is in my title change thread if you are really interested. lol
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Well thats a pretty crappy way to feel. How on earth did you deserve it?? I can agree that it might not have been an ideal situation but clearly your cousin should realize that it would not have worked out for them anyway. You guys have a happy marriage which these days is a feat in of it self. she should be happy for you. Sheesh time to move on already.

    Welllll, as always I have a story......lol. I was living in South Beach Florida managing a bar (I have been a bartender 20 years) I was in a very sick relationship and wanting out so bad but just couldn't leave it. My sister and her husband were snowbirds here in Bradenton Fl. My sister is a nurse. My sister blew her back and one of the top spinal surgeons it out of Tampa about 45 min from here. She knew I wasen't happy and decided to have her surgery done here instead of Ohio. She called and ask me if I could possibly take leave and come stay with her and take care of her while she healed. Minimum time would be 6 months. Everything paid for. Soooo......

    I took a one year leave of absence from my job, left my sick relationship and moved to Bradenton Fl. to take care of my sister, I swore to myself I would NOT date for One year so that I could take care of her and heal myself from the sick relationship. I moved in with her and took very good care of her, about 4 months into it I became bored as she was getting along better, I took a job bartending nights about 2 miles from where I was living. NUMBER ONE RULE OF BARTENDING, You DO NOT date a customer.....

    In the 11th month of me living here and one month to go til I moved back to South Beach to manage the bar again, this guy started coming in my bar, he was VERY shy, but I slowly got to know and like him. He was in the middle of a divorce and transferred here to FL. to get away from his wife and start a new life. After about 3 weeks of getting to know him and I knew he liked me, I was the one that finally ask him if he would like to go get a drink after my shift. He turned me down!! I thought "asshole"...but a few days later he came in to my bar and ask me out on a "Proper date" Dinner. He did not want to just hang out with me over a drink. I went, I swear it was love at first site for me.

    From that day on we spent every day together that we could, I extended my trip back to south beach because I knew I had something good here. We dated 4 months when he ask me to marry him. Now mind you I had been divorced for 16 years and swore I would never re-marry, he had been divorced one week (but not lived with her in months) We were planning a nice beach causal wedding I was 45, but then my family got involved and started planning it for me. He called me on a Wednesday, ask me to elope to Vegas, we flew out Friday, got married Saturday, and flew home Sunday and went back to work Monday. LMAO!!! We did take a honeymoon 6 months later. We have been married almost 5 years, we have had our ups and downs from really not knowing each other that much and both of us having baggage, hell we weren't 20 year olds. But over all I know this will be the man I will be with til the end. And I know he feels the same way. The End!! LOL
