My brother in law, I kid you not, has met all three of his ex-wives and his current girlfriend at Waffle House.

They were all waitresses.

I swear this guys life is like one huge year long episode of Jerry Springer.

 

If I was your brother in law, I'd start eating at IHOP.

- one of the Navy couples I knew met because their first and last names were the same, and the base administration kept getting them confused, which meant they were constantly running into each other while sorting mixups like crossed paychecks and room assignments.

I dare say that I would have gone to my assigned room and if anyone raised an objection, pointed out that I was ordered to be there. :lol:

My wife was at the time very chummy with my ex-girlfriend. The ex and I remained friends and helped set each other up on dates, strange as that sounds. Interestingly, I had "stolen" the ex originally from a rat bastard friend of mine who happens to be very bad to the ladies. She was just too sweet to leave to that fate, so I "rescued" her from him. I guess she repaid me later by providing me with my wife of going-on eleven years now.

 

So you could say I married the best friend of my ex-girlfriend, who I stole from my pal.

 

The ex moved a couple states away, so we unfortunately do not see her often anymore. She was Maid of Honor at our wedding, by the way. The cad did not attend. But his brother did.

 

Another weird thing is the photograph. It does not snow on the ground here in the SF Bay Area, just sometimes on the mountains. The last time it did snow at sea level, I had just turned six years old. There's a picture of me standing in the snow-covered backyard of the house in which my father and I then lived. It was taken the day my wife was born.

My wife and I met in quite a funny way, I worked with her boyfriend, who would never go out after work for a drink because he had to "get home to her" so I kept insisting he was whipped, called her a witch and had the whole place work on him going out with another girl. He finally started seeing her on the side and I made sure she caught him, turned out, he had been seeing lots of other girls on the side, was never home, and tole her it was because of me! We hated eachother until we talked, and ended up engaged 6 months later. Now we have been married almost 15 years!

My dad's parents met in college - only my grandfather was the student and my grandmother was his teacher. It was, apparently, quite the scandal at the time, she being 10 years older than him to boot.

 

My mom's parents met when they were teenagers doing church plays in high school. When my grandfather went off to college, he asked his two best friends to take care of my grandmother (in a gentlemanly sort of fashion) while he was gone. Well, they did, after a fashion - they both proposed to her!

I met my wife in a bikers pub called 'The prince of Orange' here in town. I was going out with another girl at the time but she was off out with her girl friends that night. It was love at first sight and we've been together 23 years this year.

I met my wife at college, her sister met her husband at the same time.

 

One brother met his wife at work. The other met his wife at art school, he was sent to the Gulf in '91 and she became his pen pal. Two of my sisters met their husbands at work. Another owns a business that makes Spa covers, pool table cover, car bras etc... and her husband was a online customer.

 

I've been married 19 years this September. My brothers have been married 19 and 21. My sisters have been married 31, 15 and 12. My wife's sister has also been married 19.

My wife and I actually went to the same high school. I was quarterback and she was the homecoming....nope, that's someone else's story. I was two years older than her and dated all of her friends. (At least that's how she tells the story, which is quite accurate.) We didn't "meet" until the end of my 3rd year at undergrad, her 1st year...different schools. I finally buckled under peer pressure one night and went to Cotton Eyed Joes in Knoxville...Country-Western Line-Dance club. I hate this scene and most people in it, however, I went this time. I watched all my inebriated friends make idiots of themselves, while she and I made fun of our mutual friends that night. She thought I was a club rat, I thought she was nice. So I persisted on pursuing her until she broke under my peer pressure and married me almost 7 years ago now.

Twenty years ago, a cute blond knocked on my apartment door looking for my roommate. I said, "He's not here," and closed the door. Then she started hanging out. I was captivated, but far too shy to do anything. Then she ditched the roommate, called me at my parent's house, ordered me to come over, and I walked the one whole block to her house. Turns out we damn near grew up together and I never noticed. Married 16 years.

Hmmm, being a Girl Scout, my girlffriends and I knew some Boy Scouts-we often challenged each other's troops and worked on certain community projects together during middle school and high school. As this group moved to High School, I hung out with a group that included most of us scouting nerds...and Art was a good friend of one of them and hung out with us too, through high school, science fiction conventions, adventure post fun, introduction to rpg's (Car Wars). Art and I became best friends and just got closer. I "stole" him from my best friend who also thought she was getting close to him. Really, we made him choose. We're all friends now, but it took some nudging to bring us all back to group happiness. Art's parents tried to break us up when we went to college. Didn't work. One other wedding from that group as well. We are all going on 20 years...

 

But my parents were set up on a blind date by friends. Art's parents met because his mom would meet another friend at the train station with food. Way to a man's stomach...

These posts seem to strengthen an observation regarding people of our generation (those of us in our late thirties through forties). For many of us, our parents' first marriages ended in divorce after a couple years (subsequent marriages tended to do better).

 

However, our generation has a majority of 10+, 15+, and 20+ year marriages still going strong. It's true of my friends in real life, as well.

 

Is it the divorce rate of the former generation that informs the generation following? Or some other factor, do you think?

I first saw my wife at the barracks that I lived at. She had driven a friend of hers down from Boston to see her boyfriend a shipmate of mine. I escorted them into the building up to his room. He later invited a bunch of the guys from the boat to go to a dinner theatre in Boston and meet a bunch of the girls that went to Nursing school with his girlfriend (my wife to be included). Little did I know that after I left the barrack my wife cornered my friend and to him to make sure I came. That night in Boston I ended up asking for my wife's best friends phone number. I got shot down and my wife eventual hit me with the "clue bat" and we've been together for fourteen years-twelve of them married.
