Today's entry is from Asma F:
My spouse and I have an interesting tale on how we met. I wouldn't know where to start.
Well, I'll start with how we are connected. That would be through our moms. Our moms had known each other back in the 70s since they had gone to the same high school. They both later went to UK to further their studies. That's where they met our dads. Our dads had been roommates while studying for their A-levels. They were the best of friends. Due to that, both our dads' parents became friends.
So now you'll see that even our grandparents had been friends before we were born. However, I had never met my spouse all the time while we were growing up!
How is that possible? Well, our families both lived in different countries while we were growing up. He lived in UK and Australia, while I lived in the States.
However, every year, my family would visit his grandparents. Some times his parents would be around, some times his brothers, but never him. That was because he was still in UK. (Even my sister had met him and his family when she went to further her studies in UK!) I, on the other hand, had never took an interest in any of my parents' friends' kids.
So, during our annual visit to his grandparents' house at the end of 2006, I was bored and waiting to go home. However, his grandfather had called him to stop by the house and meet our family, as he had finally returned from UK. This would be the first time I'd ever meet him, but I wasn't interested.
We had to wait for him to drive over, and when he got out of his car, the moment I laid eyes on him, I fell in love. (I know how corny it sounds, but it really was love at first sight!) He smiled at me and proceeded to greet my family. What I didn't know at that time was that he fell in love with me too! :)
And after that, as they all say, is history.
