  • Nope. We lived together for 4 years, so there were absolutely no surprises when we got married. Together for 11 years and still going strong.

    If there are surprises, then you didn't bother asking the right questions!

  • We were friends for the first several months and enjoyed similar activities and discussions. Before we fell in love, we fell in like.

  • Yeh, I thought he was a good provider, financially...WRONG! I mean, he had a really good job and lost it, were talking years ago, he's in business for himself and refuses to see "It Aint Workin!" He refuses to find a paying job/ work for someone else! Our marriage would be great if it weren't for money problems!

  • Nope we were friends for several months before we started dating, then after dating for about 6 months we moved in together, we lived together for a year before he proposed so by the time we got married I knew exactly what I was dealing with =)

  • No I had my eyes open, I never went in thinking everything was going to be picture perfect, I knew any relationship was going to be a work in progress esp a marriage. We didnt live together before marriage and we will be celebrating our 9th anni next week.

  • Yep, Apparently I was because he turned out to be an abusive asshole. There were red flags all over the place but I was to blind to see them.

    Answer by KyliesMom5 at 7:56 PM on May. 10, 2011

  • Yes, I must admit that I ignored the signs. It took me years but I finally got out and divorced him. He was emotionally abusive, a liar,you name it,. BUT at least I have three wonderful children. And grandchildren. :-)
