    The Predestined Meeting of Sourland and the Princess: Way back when the dean of men suggested that I should drop out of college - something about my falling grades and class attendance I guess. I went back to 'bar tend' at a college party - had just broken up with a long term relationship and was NOT interested in meeting anyone. The Princess was at this party with a fraternity brother of mine (had tried to get out of the date, but her mother insisted that she go.) We spent the evening talking, but I was not interested - remember. On the way back to school I was sort of racing the brother of another friend. Stopped at a light, and 'HE' pulled up in my blind spot. I blew out of that light and left HIM in the dust. Oops, those flashing lights indicated that was a cop I had sucked up. Time to go back to college town and go to court, but first thought I would go see that cute little thing that I had met at the party. Knew which building she worked in at the Ag school and went to see her. "Hey, I am going to lose my license tonight, but if that doesn't happen will you go out with me?" Long story short the judge only lectured me and fined me - I gave a pretty good sob story, and we had a date. Probably no such thing as 'love at first', but for sure there is 'extreme like at first sight' plus she was beautiful. Went back to school, dated 14 months, got married on my senior semester break, and here we are 52 years later. Wonder what might have happened if I had lost my license? I did not live life well prior to her - my guardian angels knew that I needed her in my life.

    Thank you NFC. We'll keep working on catching up to Sour and Princess.

    We posted at the same time, so edited to say "Great story Sourland!" Thanks for sharing.

    What a love story!! Um, I assume you behaved yourself - academically - and finished up your college days with a degree to go a long with that pretty little wife!!

    Needless to say, I did not get my GPA back up to dean's list level, but I graduated with a BS in animal husbandry/minor in horticulture and made a career working in both fields. Did not become a veterinarian as originally planned, but did all right with my life. Without her who knows? She became and has remained my purpose in life.

    The secret to a long marriage is the art of a successful argument.
    Like a well written paper.
    It always needs a point and a conclusion.

    You should write a book on how it is done. and then when you flip the book over and upside down, then her half of the book is there with how it was really done.
    I bet it would be hilarious and helpful to all.
