Hubby and I met through an ad in the local paper.
Both of us were coming out of bitter relationships and wanted nothing to do with the lovely dovey crap and rose tinted glasses. We just wanted friendship, and that was how it started.
My SIL said once to keep him as a friend and go out and find myself ‘a man’, thinking more along the lines of boyfriend. No sir. I’d had enough of that.
Anyway, some time later they had some friends round and Hubby (to be) was introduced to them as ‘Di’s Man’. He stood in the doorway and clapped his hands saying ‘Oh goody! I’ve been promoted to a man!’
We all saw the funny side and I’ve never held it against her.
Maybe that was enough for us to take the plunge and get married. It was a cool move and we celebrate our Pearl wedding anniversary in May.
