    My dad's sister was a collage friend of my mom. At a party they are introduced. My father says 'I am going to marry you.' 'You are crazy!' My mom replies. To this day they are both right. They have been married for 36 years.

    My parents met at College, they were introduced by friends. My dad was a graduate student pursuing his PHD in Philosophy, my mom was an undergrad majoring in Psychology/Biology. They have been married, for 28 years.

    I wouldn't say they click, but they haven't gotten divorced yet.

    My folks met while they were in their late teens when they were both working at an inn/resort here in Vermont one summer.

    Over 40 years later and they're still together.

    Mine is a pretty funny story. My dad used to be in the USAF and was stationed in Saarland. My mom lived of course as well, and apparently they met at a disco (lmfao) and neither of them spoke the others respective language very well, so they learned the others language in the process of dating. :p

    How did they meet? The families have know each other for generations. My paternal grandmother's first husband died when she was pregnant with her first child. Just over a year later she married my paternal grandfather. Grandma's first husband's brother was the father of my maternal grandfather. In otherwords my father's 1/2 sister was my mother's cousin once removed. My paternal grandmother was the aunt (by marriage) of my maternal grandfather. You get the picture. So they basically knew each other since my mother was born when my father was six. But they didn't start dating until my father returned from the army & college - about 25 & 19.
