DH badly sprained his ankle over the weekend and now has a baseball-sized lump on it (he's at the doctor right now), and I'm SO stressed for him!

I know we've talked about this before but I just had to chime in to agree with your assessment that 'it happened when it was supposed to'. All of the things that happened in those intervening years made you the people you are today and maybe created the right context for your relationship to work the way it is now. ;)

After I got divorced, I looked him up on Myspace. Even though it had been 14 years, each of us had never forgotten the other. We had our "first date" on 1-19-2009, said "I love you" on 1-24-09, and got engaged on 2-14-09. We didn't get married until 8-28-09, but that was only because our finances were in such a mess. I would've married him right away.

Since we've been together, we've figured out that we should have run into each other so many times over those years we weren't in contact. He worked as a courier delivering to the place I worked. I hung out two doors down from the bar where he worked. And on and on. But it happened exactly when it was supposed to.

Thanks, Tasha!

DH and I were both married before, and we each had spent a lot of time thinking about what went wrong in our first marriages, and the roles we played in their failures. I think that helps so much this time around. Also, DH and I knew each other when I was in high school, then lost touch for 14 years. In a way, we feel like we "missed out on" those years we could have been together, or at least a part of each others' lives. So we don't waste any time now.
