I moved out, we got divorced, and we went our separate ways, but always would call each other when we needed something or had a problem and wanted that one person that "knew" who we were and could help us through the problem. About 2 1/2 years ago there was a family issue that required us to be together quite a bit and little by little we both started to talk, I mean REALLY talk, and we BOTH realized the mistakes we had made and decided to "date". We always use to have fun together before the family came along; dancing, camping, cooking, traveling and it all just picked up again where it left off from before when we started our family. I fell in love all over again!! This man is and always has been a "perfect fit" for me, I just never realized it until I was on my own and I finally "grew up"!! And he has told me time and again that I have always been his "only true love" and that the time we spent apart made him realize how much he didn't do, how he had never listened to what I needed or wanted, totally took me for granted and regretted every minute of what he had done after we divorced.

It's one of those love stories that is only written about or seen in the movies, but we are living that love story now every single day! A more amazing, caring, loving man can not be found and a more "perfect fit" does not exist anywhere in the world for me! Sure, there were some of the same issues from when we were married, but we talked them through, figured out how we BOTH were contributing to the problem and found a solution that would get rid of the "trigger" that caused these same problems to come up again. We "work" at us now, and it's working SO amazingly well!!

I'm so happy and just KNOW this will have the perfect ending it should have had the first time!! As a matter of fact when he asked me to marry him in front of our kids, family and friends tonight at the dinner table, he said it like this: "Will you marry me again, and this time we will do it the right way!" How could I NOT say YES, YES, YES!!

True love can't be stopped!! Soul mates for sure! So happy for a restored marriage, that just makes my day!
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! Much love and joy sent your way!!

Congratulations Linda & DBF (soon to be DH!) Your happy news was the first thing I read this morning, and has made my day.

This is the second time one of your posts has made me cry..this time with joy!

His proposal sounds so lovely...from now on Thanksgiving will be a double celebration in your home!

I am over the moon for you both...you are obviously soulmates...you really couldnt have ended up with anyone else, could you?

You will be the most beautiful bride...slender, elegant and glowing with health and love...with your children at your side...sharing your joy! I so hope you will share the pictures here.

Have you and Dh set a date yet?

Big hugs to the happy couple

Jo

PS....that is one awesome ring!!

I was all calm and collected and ready for bed, and now I am all tearful and happy and falling to pieces. That is the most lovely post I have EVER read on LCF.

My heartfelt good wishes to you and your husband, past and to be. What a blessing to have come together again, this time forever.

PS I want that ring.

It so funny that you posted this! When Rob started to have the ring made it was Aug, and the start of my JUDDD journey. Well, fast forward to Thanksgiving week when he finally got the ring and now it's too big!!! It took 3 months to match up the champagne diamonds to the jewelers and Rob's liking and in that 3 months and 16+ weight loss my ring size went from a 6 to a 5 1/4. Now I have to have it re-sized!! . My jeweler gave me a ring guard yesterday and told me to bring it in when I want in the next 2 weeks. It has to be sent back to the NYC jeweler who designed the ring because my jeweler doesn't want to touch it because of all the diamonds in the band (yes, FutureDH did a GREAT job on this ring, I'm just so amazed in his design ability and how awesome it is). So I'm going to wear it for a little bit and then have it re-sized! I just can't part with it yet!

Here is a picture of the ring. It doesn't do it justice, but it's a beautiful round diamond surrounded by yellow champagne diamonds with chocolate diamonds down the side and then it has champagne and chocolate diamonds on the flat side of the band! It's just amazing and EVERYTHING I would have wanted in a ring, and more. He REALLY listened when I told him the kind of ring I would want if I ever got engaged!!



Congratulations, Omaneem! You deserve a happy ending.
