Just one of those things. I knew of her, we had classes together in 6th grade. I actually had a nickname for her in 6th grade, but I never talked to her after that year really, even though we shared a homeroom in 8th grade. One of my favorite stories though, is that I played Bob Cratchit, the father of Tiny Tim in a 6th grade play of "A Christmas Carol", and oddly enough, she played my wife. I love that story. But no, I didn't even see her in my highschool any of the four years, not that I can remember anyways. It was a big school so it's somewhat understandable. But anyways, a year or so back, I saw her on the People You May Know thing on facebook, added her, began chatting about shit, actually I started the convo off by calling her the old nickname I gave her. But yeah, it's all history from there.
Yeah exactly, and plus she's still working on the end of her engineering degree/co-op work term, so the timing was terrible. Maybe a couple years down the line when she's making the big salary at an engineering firm we'll have children and I'll stay home and watch the kids while posting on ISH all day.
Here's some advice coming from a man who's been married for nearly six years....
Get a good lawyer.
Seriously though, in my married lifetime I've already seen 3 couple marry and seperate during that time. Marriage is a commitment that's give and take. It's exciting to get married but to stay married is a different thing. I strongly advise going through marriage counselling first. get the skeletons out of the way and find the holes and patch them up before you may encounter then at the wrong time.
But in any case, congrats. Love your wife and family first.
