Love GenX Style Contest entry #30

Today's entry is from Kim T:
My husband Matt is originally from Missouri and I am from Michigan.
At the time we met I was attending Ohio State University and he was stationed at Ft. Benning, GA. (Army) I was online chatting with friends of mine while trying to do my homework for one of my classes. As I was chatting away someone starting chatting with my friends and I in our conversation. I had no idea who he was.
Eventually I sent him a private message asking him who he was and why he was chatting in our conversation? After that single private message they never stopped. We started talking on the phone for hours at a time even though we never met! After three months of talking on the phone I finally flew to Georgia to meet him and the rest was history. We immediately knew that this was it for the both of us. As we began to find out more about each other we realized that he was from a very small town which is the location for the college I was going to attend if I didn t get to Ohio State. We also learned that we had mutual friends from our hometowns! I couldn t believe what a small world it truly is!
After a short six months Matt and I we were engaged and three months later we were married. We lived in different states the entire time we dated and after we were married for 3 months. The separation however, has truly blessed us and prepared us for our lives that we have now.
Since we have been married my husband has been deployed four times. The separation we experienced from the very beginning allowed us to be separated from each other for periods of time without any great strain on our marriage. The separation has done nothing but strengthen our love for each other and for the children we now have!
