Teen dating bological married couples dating stories
We’ve spent eight of those years married – the three months prior to our 2005 wedding was the sum total of our courtship.
So brief was our engagement that my ring wasn’t ready until I was pregnant with our first son.
On our second date we talked about having children together, but that only intensified the attraction for both of us.
I was won over by his absolute conviction in the things most important to him – fundamentally family and loyalty.
No matter how entranced I was, I’d have to quickly deduce whether we were likely to last the course.
In the preceding weeks, I had recklessly broken the dating rules and accepted a host of dinner invitations at short notice.
The truth is I had reached a stage when I could no longer repress my longing for children.
I had always wanted to be a mother, but was distracted by my career as an investigative journalist.
Living out of suitcases or in safe houses was incompatible with having children and I had to prove myself twice as hard in a male-dominated environment.
However, having initially felt deserted by fellow career women who took consecutive periods of maternity leave, I suddenly began to see that they’d got it right.
My simmering dream of motherhood ignited into a burning desire.
I feel compelled to admit that our coming together wasn’t solely down to Cupid’s intervention.
