"I met my Valentine, Dennis, at the video counter of a local grocery store, where I was working weekends after separating from my husband. Dennis rented more movies than anyone I've ever known! He always had a joke and a smile when he came into the store, and if I tried to hide in the office so I could get some work done, he'd tap on the window and wave to say hello. We started dating after the details of my divorce had been worked out, and got married after the divorce was finalized. How could I refuse when he offered to take my last name (so my daughter -from a previous relationship - and I would still have the same name)?
We celebrated our second anniversary in October and will celebrate our son's first birthday in June. He's the best thing that ever happened to me, and he says he waited 'nearly 40 years' to find the right woman. My daughter has said more than once that, "Dennis just fits," with us. I can easily see still feeling like a newlywed ten years down the road."

"My wife (Vickey) and I met in a nursing home when she was 12 and I was 15! It was her great aunt's birthday and our youth group from church was visiting her as well. I knew that day I would marry her. We married when she was 17 and I was 20, but I made her parents a promise that she would finish school. She did. We will be married 33 years March 8."

"I actually met my mate at my grandmothers funeral. Our parents talked about getting us together for a long time. My uncle introduced me to her dad(for the first time)as my future father-in-law. It went on like this for about 3 years. Then at my grandmothers funeral we were introduced to each other and basically been together ever since."
