My husband and I have two totally different versions on how we became girlfriend and boyfriend back in high school.
I distinctly remember him NEVER asking me to be his girlfriend. We just kind of starting hanging together everyday after school and then well, we never stopped hanging out.
He says he did ask me to be his girlfriend but, even if he didn't the most important thing is, he asked me to be his wife.
Yeah, Yeah, that's all nice, well and good but, you never asked me to be your girlfriend.
He starts looking at me like I have lost my ever lasting mind. Are you serious woman? I'm your husband now, isn't that what matters?
Yes, it matters but, it would have been nice if you officially asked me to be your girlfriend.
He said the conversation wasn't going anywhere therefore he said the conversation was over.
So, when I tell people we RARELY argue, I'm telling the truth. It's not because we have this perfect (without flaws) marriage, it's just that my husband REFUSES to engage conversations that aren't going anywhere (those are his words, not mine) HaHa.
We never really resolved the 'argument'
Fast forward to a few months later, he was sent to Iraq and he had already missed one of our most favorite holidays spent together (Thanksgiving) and I get this IM (Instant Message) from him that says:
Will you go with me? Yes or No
I BALLED for what seemed an eternity. How sweet and special was that?
I couldn't contain my emotions. I couldn't believe he actually asked me after all these years.
He waited patiently for my answer and I responded...
WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG? OF COURSE, I'LL GO WITH YOU! NOW COME HOME SAFELY! WE MISS YOU!
Our daughter finds the story to be violably corny and gross and thinks we need to 'get a room' on most days. One day she'll understand, one day, I'm sure!
I'd like to happily announce my husband and I are officially 'going together' and we're having a date night to celebrate our union.
And guess who's NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT!!!!
