I worked for my husband as a personal assistant for 4 months before an emergency business trip.

We went to China and I fell in love with the “idea” of him not knowing he was falling in love with me at the same time. He proposed we spend our lives together on the plane back to the states after spending just 4 days together abroad .  We never had a wedding (because it’s not something we wanted) but we are also not stupid. We have a nuptial agreement. We changed our last names in court (after he MADE UP our new last name!)

After 7 years we have 3 children with one on the way. We’ve been separated once and have been to counseling twice. We both continue to choose each other and say I love you every day.

Hope you enjoyed my story!!
