Hello, I am new to this forum.


My name is Christine and I am VERY VERY happily married to Robbie. We live in So-Cal where I go to school for my BS and am a Software Analyst and Robbie is a career military type.


This is (technically) my second marriage (his first)

Hi and welcome to the board. I'm also in SoCal, but probably north of you if your DH is military. :) Would love to hear about big mess, but that's up to you. What makes things so different this time around? I love comparing, mostly because when it's so much better the second time around.....it makes it that much more reaffirming.

Again, welcome.

Hi and thanks for the welcome!!!


Well the first time around....long story short: I was 23 and AD Navy. I was dating a nice enough guy who I had little in common with but who was a decent and fun person. I was on BC but OMG...we got PG (enough acronyms for you? LOL).

Hi Red Queen and welcome :)


I did read the "long" story......how many years elapsed from marriage one to Robbie?

I left my ex in early 2004 (though our marriage had already been over and we had been living "seperately in the same house" for better than a year by then). I met Robert 2 years later in 2006 and married him in 2008.

For a short period of time he lived with my mother and I saw him at her home. Then he went to live with my ex and his new wife with whom he resides to this day. He has a 2 yr old (? about ?) baby sister that he adores there and all the adults get along pretty darn well these days! Right now he is actually with me and Robbie for the summer. :)

Hi and welcome!

The choices we make in thought, word and deed inevitably return to us in kind.

I gotta admit, that is a great story. I'm glad Robbie got you out of there and safe and I'm assuming clean now. What is your son's name?

I recall my first date with this hot guy. Wish it didn't start that way. I needed a ride to the hospital because my then BF beat me enough that I needed to go. I had no one to call. Well, I had one person but he would've probably committed murder so I didn't call him to keep him safe. I called this guy I met online. I know, strange. But he had always been a sweet guy. He took me to the hospital and took care of me that night.

Not all guys are good, not all of them online are great. But there are some out there with genuine hearts. I'm glad you were able to find one. ;)
