    We had been dating for just over a year when I got a new job that meant I needed to move back in with my parents. We had met at work so I was used to seeing him every day through our jobs, but we weren't living together and would struggle to afford to do so.

    Moving home was very upsetting as I was convinced that our relationship would fizzle out after a few months. My previous relationship had fallen apart after we moved to respective homes after university, my ex-OH could be difficult to get in contact with and I assumed it would be the same.

    But on my first evening at my parents I received an email with a sound file attached. My OH had decided to record me a little audio message every single evening as a way of staying in touch. It was such a sweet, lovely gesture (neither of us like using the 'phone) that I realised how different this relationship was from my previous one, and that he was the one for me.

    Our first date, we'd emailed for 2/3weeks and felt there was a connection. I was 17 and in sixth form doing my a-levels, he was 23 and a graduate. We decided to go on a date, and I just knew as we walked along talking that he was it. We've now been together 10yrs, it's our 5th wedding anniversary in a few days, we have a nearly 2yr old son and buying our first house.
    I won't lie and say it's all been plain sailing and bliss everyday, to many we'd seem to have the perfect life. It's hard, like all relationships, but with anything some couples will work out whilst others don't.
    It's a big different for us as neither of us had been with anyone else, so for both of us it's our first and only relationship.

    After 6 months together I dislocated my knee and was on bed rest, I then got a sick bug. He held my hair, the bucket and looked after me, this was 12 years ago.

    If a man holds your sick bucket he is the one lol

    When i first saw my wife i turned to my friend who was with me at the time and said "i'm going to marry that girl one day".

    Two years later we were married

    Chance in a million really though. I used to say that a lot about girls i saw...
