    Hi, everyone! Quick story; In 6th grade, I had a crush on a super cute girl who I had seen in the halls of our elementary school. I had never spoken to her, I just thought she was the most beautiful girl I'd ever seen. Like, I wanted to marry her, she was that beautiful; I was immediately obsessed with her. Not too long after I saw her for the first time, I played guitar on stage at our school talent show. During my performance, that girl stood up, pointed at me, and screamed "I'm going to marry him!!!" We were eleven years old.

    I'm 27 now, and as of Saturday, March 9th, 2019, she is officially my wife :)

    I got married!!! My childhood sweetheart, and girlfriend of like 16 years is now my wife, and i couldnt be happier. A lot of you already know that I'm very ill, and don't have a great life because of it. But despite that, I couldn't feel any luckier than I do right now. (How many people actually get to marry their elementary-school-sweetheart?)

    Long story short, I'm now married, and for the first time in quite a while, I am happy, despite the pain from my illness. I just wanted to share that with all my wonderful friends here on gretsch-talk.

    Here is a picture of me and my wife Jessica on our wedding day. (I'm still getting used to saying "wife", lol.)

    Congrats! I had a similar reaction to my wife when I saw her for the first time. Never talked to her I was a sophomore she was a senior and I only saw her a couple of times. Fast forward six years I get out of the Marines and take a part-time job at Walmart and she is a cashier. I ask her out and two years later we were married. 27 year as of last September. I hope you guys keep at it as long and longer.

    Thanks, Ricochet! Although I'm pretty sure having her on your arm would make anyone look good. I'm a skinny, crippled goofball, but she's more than pretty enough for the both of us, lol.

    Thank you! I think "life doesn't always have to suck" is definitely an appropriate takeaway from our story. Life sucks pretty hard, pretty often, but when it doesn't suck, it can be really, really amazingly wonderful.

    Haha, actually I did play a song when she walked down the aisle; one of the first songs I ever wrote was a pretty little classical piece that I wrote for her 13-14 years ago, and she asked me to play it during the ceremony as she walked out. It was very cute. No spells though, haha.
