After a while, I began to realize what I had and was thankful I "did the right thing" even though I did it with unpure intentions. I have been around a lot of marriages and I'd be hard pressed to find someone that has it better than I do. I hit the lottery and it took me a couple of years to realize it!
I met my wife on a bet in a bar. Was out drinking and carousing with some buddies. I was being pretty cocky and a buddy said "you are not the greatest looking guy in the world how do you score these women"?? I said "I am just smoove. In fact pick any woman in the place and I'll have her phone number before we leave tonight"!!
Fugger had to pick a hottie that was going to be some work. Long story short I had to have some help from a girl that was a friend (you know dance with her so I could scope the other one and get her attention). Anyway i ended up dancing with my future wife and getting her number. We did not go on a date for a month or so but spend alot of time talking on the phone. We went out and things just clicked. She moved into my house within a couple months and were married 2 years later. Three kids and 18 years later we are still together for the moment.
