  • Um...parents that couldn't stand us getting married. (on both sides) other than that nothing. He was 18 and I was 19 so we didn't have much baggage. :)

  • I have a child from a previous marriage. He practically had NO baggage at all. He was 35 when we met, he had never been married or had any children. In fact, before me, he swore up & down that he would never marry, or have kids...well....we're now married, but I'm OK with the no kids thing. My one DD is awesome, i don't need anymore kids.

    The only "baggage" he has is that ONE ex girlfriend who just has to be friends forever with him, she even told him that she was upset about us getting! But, i am learning to deal with her. She is just pissed that he never would have thought to marry her, yet he married me. HAHA!

  • I was still married when we met. I'd been separated for almost 2 years but the divorce wasn't final yet. Actually we got married 9 days after my divorce was final! I also had 2 kids, and terrible credit plus bills out the wahoo from my marriage/divorce.
    He, on the other hand, had a great job, nice house, awesome credit, no kids or crazy exes, and a wonderful family. I got so very lucky, and he, well he got us!

  • I didn't have any baggage.  My dh was recovering from another relationship but he got over that pretty fast when he met me.

  • Husband's ex has and is taking him to the cleaners. He has to pay her $8,000 per month for life - and she was the one who had the affair and dumped him. She never worked in the 25 years they were married. She's a greedy slimeball. When he discovered the affair, she asked him if they could just stay married and she'd have her boyfriend on the side.... well essentially, that's what she got. She'll be financially married to my husband for life. Pffft.... california divorce law really sucks!!!

  • We were young. i was 18 and he was 22. The only "baggage" we had was that we both came from homes with divorced parents. Nothing serious.
