It's funny how relationships work out. Sometimes they kick off in unexpected ways... and before you know it, you're married and settling down!

After Redditor thequeenoffandomhell asked the online community, "What's your 'Anyways, we're married now' story?" people shared their experiences, and they're a great peek into the lives of different people worldwide. At the end of the day, we all want a lot of the same things, including love and companionship.


"Met a new coworker..."

Met a new coworker and our first interaction was me saying "I don't believe you" under my breath as I walked by. He thought I said "I don't like you". Anyways, we're married now.

"When I was 13..."

When I was 13, I met a girl, Debby, at summer camp. She talked about her horses and attending the big interstate fair every year with her 4H group. On my 13th birthday I went to the fair and looked Debby up. She agreed to go to the carnival with me, but wasn't all that interested (I can't blame her, 13-year old me was a dweeb). She brought along her annoying girlfriend Rene to keep me from getting too fresh, which worked. I was determined to get Debby alone, not that I knew exactly why, so I took the girls on the Tip-Top ride. Rene got sick, got off the ride, and puked. Debby and Rene used that as an excuse to split, and I never saw Debby again.

Three years later, a beautiful new girl with long black hair moved out on my school bus line. I was immediately interested, and began a (much smoother) conversation. We went out a couple weeks later, and went to a carnival. She took me on the Tip-Top, and I puked. That girl was Rene, we were both three years older; and anyways, we're married now: for 41 years.

"I had just started dating this guy..."

I had just started dating this guy, and he came over to hang out. My roommate was b!tching about her coworker Pam. So I said, "Who names their kid Pam anyway? F*** bitches named Pam." My date says "My mom's name was Pam." His dead mom. Anyways, we're married now.

"She told him to grow up."

My dad threw a paper airplane at the back of my mom's head in college. She told him to grow up. Anyways, they've been married now for over 36 years.

"Co-worker's boyfriend's brother..."

Co-worker's boyfriend's brother came up to stay with them. "We have to have you out for dinner with him, you have a lot in common, he likes nerdy things too. You're not allowed to date him though."

Definitely dated and married him. Co-worker and now brother-in-law broke up around the time we got engaged - he's better without her.

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.
