That he'd think I walked in water forever like he did when we first met. 4. That we'd have a boy. 5. That I wouldn't get along with his family (or they wouldn't like me). What did happen? 1. We did fight a lot and split up for a while. 2. I had to admit that I was wrong in a lot of our fights. 3. We had 3 girls in 9 years. 4. His family likes me. 5. He turned out to be more thoughtful then I thought he was.
