OT - How/When Did You Know Your Spouse was 'The One'?

Submitted by xtramelanin on May 14th, 2016 at 9:02 PM

Mates,

Lets try a more positive thread, hopefully something interesting too.  I note that the MgoSpouses take some fairly regular heat on the blog.   But at some point in the past you made the decision that he/she was 'The One', the wife or husband that you decided to plan the rest of your life with.  So do tell, what character traits, common interests, anecdotal stories, adventures (G rated), moments in time, whatever it was that caused you to pop the question or say 'yes' to the question? 

This could be answered by those with significant others and the engaged Mgobloggers too, if they care to share.

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday.  I will note it is snowing here.

Cause I spent 24 fucking years in hell with one that most certainly was NOT the one. I knew on the first date that no way would I ever do better then Jill. She's the most amazing person I've ever met. Loves sports, great mom, great cook, funny and awesome in bed.

First date I just knew she was hot and really nice. The rest I learned over time.

It wasn't at first sight or any of that horseshit. It was one night at a bar with friends, we started writing notes on napkins to one other across the table, mercilessly mocking each other, our friends, and everyone in the room. The fact that she not only appreciated my brutal sarcasm but could keep right up with it; I knew right then that she was the one for me.

I talked with her many times on the phone, because the girl I was dating didn't answer her phone and it always rolled to my future wife.  We planned to meet at a bar where my buddy and I played pool so we could hook up her friend with mine.  No kidding - the moment she walked in, I turned my head and there she was.  I followed her all the way through the bar to where we were standing.

A few weeks latter we were talking on the phone again and we both mentioned that we broke up with our 'other'.  The next night we went on a date, got engaged a year later, and married a year after that.  It's been mostly great, but you get out of marriage what you put into it.

Met her in October, ran into her again in December, for all intents and purposes we were living together in January. Now 26 years later...

About a year or two into it, I came to the realisation that she was the exact opposite of my mother and sisters.

Drinking a Grapefruit Sculpin (just finished a Pineapple). Don't remember when I knew she was the one, but will never forget the feeling I had right after I purchased the engagement ring. I felt real good, real good. Knew I was making a good move. Cheers.
