We didn't hang out a lot during those 7 years because we lived in different cities and I always kind of had it in the back of my mind that he would be a good husband and that when I was ready to settle down I'd be more interested in dating him but wanted to play the field so to speak.

It makes me laugh thinking about it although they are all very good looking men. Really, 23 years is longer than many marriages that start off with a romance and we had a good stable home to raise our children in and I was even able to stay home and raise them for a few years.
