I'm so glad to hear that things are going so well for you. Hubby and I knew each other for about
8 years before we started dating. I had gone to HS with his sister, but we didn't hang out together much. I always thought he was cute and he had the most gorgeous blue eyes, but he was always off doing his own thing with his friends.
It didn't take long before he moved in and things went well for a while. Eventually, thoguh, it got tough and we split up. A year later, he needed to move and my friend and I had a 3 BR apt, so we let him move in. He was only supposed to stay for a few months and then get his own place after the holidays, but it worked out well and it was nice to have a 3rd person to split the expenses with.
Eventually, we ended up back together and after 12 years of "living in sin" we tied the knot. We're now married 3 1/2 years and very happy. Although my gut trouble did push us to the brink, getting a Dx and treating it along with a whole lot of counseling saved our marriage. We're hoping to start a family soon (if my gut allows).
I hope that you get such a happy ending too. (((hugs)))
