How did you meet your spouse?

How did it happen; was God's hand obvious or did it happen in a more natural way? Even if it happened in a natural way I'm sure God lead in subtle ways; what things looking back do you see that He did to bring you together. And how did He prepare you or marriage. How did you come to the conclusion that God wanted you to be married? What age were you when you met; how long did God ask you to wait and how did you have the strength to do it?

Thanks!!!!

God's hand was obvious to me (after I met dh). I left a job of several years and got a job at a hospital (massive pay cut, and I HATED hospitals ). We met in that ER, in fact, he was the very first ER employee I met.
I had only a few boyfriends, each vastly different, and each taught me what I wanted& didn't want. I also learned slowly that I had a desire to not be alone.
Even though I was tempted to not wait for sex, I kept enough wits and logic for restraint. It was the best personal decision of my life. After I married that one great choice became even more important.
How did I have the strength to do it? I'm logical. I was Christian with godly parents. I simply constantly reminded myself of the repercussions: stds,pregnancy out of wedlock, that man not staying by my side, and my motto to "never do anything that you may regret ".
I was 25 when I married my 39 year old husband.
It was after I married when my heart changed from anti kids to wanting children with him... A very strong desire we both share now.

I hope I got all those questions answered....

Glory be!

We met on-line, way before it was popular to do so. God's hand was obvious at times, not so at others. We started as friends with NO other intentions, and even discouraged any flirtation, trying to remain friends only.
I was 40 (?) when we started talking, 42 when we married (first/only marriage for each) I'd say God spent 20+ years making me the adult I am and I don't think He had to 'prepare' me for marriage per se. Wait? I wasn't waiting, I was living the lovely life God was overseeing.

I first met my wife when I was invited to a friends birthday party and I new almost no one there and as I mingled I came to the corner and here was one of the most beautiful woman I ever saw, talking about being thirty. Listening to the stories she was exciting and funny as could be. I said Hi, and we talked a while and she was smart as whip. We went are separate ways and a while later online I got an instant message from her. We talked online for about a month and then she asked me out, I said no to her twice. First I was worried that she probably would not want to date a poor grad student, second she lived two hours away. I was wrong on both accounts. So third time she asked me I told her "Listen I have something to tell you." Her response was "Oh God You ARE MARRIED! Ahhhh" My response was "No, No, NO, NO, Heavens NO, only that I was a poor grad student. We still laugh about that, the second memorable laugh happened on our first date, I learned she was twenty, not thirty people just think she's thirty. I felt like I was robbing a cradle, she learned that I was 27 not 20 I just looked younger. She thought she was robbing the grave. We were both a little apprehensive about it. Yet it faded.

The moment I thought I would marry her was at the end of the first date, I remember separating to go back home and before we did, all she did was ask for a hug. Not a kiss which is way too much for a first date in my old fashioned head. I thought it was the sweetest thing in the world, and when I drove home I thought "I am going to marry her". To which I told myself "No, No you just met her, that's crazy talk! and why am I talking to myself?" I spent the next two years driving four hours every weekend, sacrificing food during the week for gas. I proposed to her on New Years Eve after two years of dating.

To tell you another reason why I love her, she is one of the most practical woman in the world. She did not want a big wedding. She thought it was a waste of money. So it was very simple and instead we can spend our money on a down payment for a house.

As for being prepared you never really can prepare, it is a life change. Yet I will share our latest tiff and how that brings us closer together and it might help you see how you need to think. My wife and I came home from visiting our friends and family, where she use to live on a Sunday. It was eleven at night and I was about to brush my teeth, no tooth brush or toothpaste in site, and I could not find the bag we packed them in. I went and asked her "If she saw the bag when we were emptying the car?", unfortunately she was angry because she was looking for Christmas present online for her family and it was problematic. So she yelled at me "No! How should I know where they are?", which of course sent my Late not temper off with a "Fine, I WAS JUST ASKING!". I went upstairs got dressed fuming, came down to put my shoes and she yelled "I'LL go." I yelled "No stay home, and look for you ^*(&)@$ stupid 3D glasses". I got in the car still angry went to Walmart thought for a second and picked up two toothbrushes, toothpaste, her contact lens solution, her facial scrub, and her moisturizer. I went home, she was sorry for yelling, and I apologized too because I was wrong to fly off the handle at one ugly remark. We both said we should get better at that. Then she saw I bought all of her night stuff. She was a so happy and said "You got everything?! I thought you would probably just get the stuff you needed." I said "Of course not. You use this stuff every night. I love you hun."
Now it is only our fourth year so we are still young and naive but I think the only way you can prepare is to be willing to forgive on a drop of dime and serve the other even when you are angry. Let your actions always convey love.

As for Gods hands, I don't see it but if you do, that is OK too. Either way I hope you will find a similar love in your life, but go after it and be willing to sacrifice for it, don't expect your God to do the work for you.

We were introduced by a Longtime friend of mine who was dating a hunting buddy of His. I was living in a town about 60 miles away. My friend called me up telling me about her glorious new BF & how she had found the perfect man for ME. She set us up. I had NO intention of going, & after cancelling a couple of times I finally went to a Bar-B-Q just to SHUT HER UP...never left

The rest as they say is history.

My wife was looking through profiles on Myspace just seeing who else was on that went to the same high school that she did. She saw my picture and it appealed to her. She sent me a message and we started talking. Three years after our first date, we got married.

I was working at a school in Indonesia. I had one class scheduled after another, back to back without even a five minute break in between. I left something in a class and went back to get it. When I went back in, a teacher introduced me to a new assistant teacher.

The same day, I saw her in the office sitting way down the same table from where I saw. I don't think I realized she was the same person I had met. She had a sticker from her church on her briefcase. This girl was really beautiful. I was looking at her and thinking, I wonder if God will some day give me a woman that beautiful to be my wife. Then I caught myself. It wasn't good to sit around thinking about such a thing. I needed to get back to work.

Some time that year, a friend of mine was praying for me said she'd seen a vision of my future wife. So I prayed, if that was the case, the things that are revealed belong to us and our children forever, so I asked the Lord to show me. I had a vision, not a three D like you are there, vision, but one of those picture in your head type visions. It focused in on a portion of a face, a woman's face, kind of oily or sweaty, with kind of big eyebrows, an Asian woman. I didn't get a lot of detail.

Fast forward to a year after I'd seen that young woman at school. I was visiting a Bible college campus in Indonesia. A missionary lived in a little apartment on campus. He lectured there. He'd had be over for dinner during the Christmas break. He suggested I make us of the library which contained a number of Christian books in English. I decided to do that and go make some friends and maybe find some ministry opportunities with the students there.

On my second or third visit there, a couple of young ladies walked by. One was really happy and said in English, "Hi, sir," when she saw me. I watched her walk toward the stairs to go to the library. She looked back at me.

I was talking to a student downstairs in a common area that doubled as a cafeteria. I'd become acquainted with Philemon, who was playing the guitar. The young woman I'd seen earlier sat down next to Philemon and asked if he knew a certain song. I struck up a conversation with her. She had a word, a prophetic word or word of knowledge about my ministry calling which fit well with what I knew the Lord was doing in my life. I had a bottle of water in a backpack I had with me, and spilled it. She put it out in the sunshine for me and we talked a little. I ended up giving her my phone number, but I did not get hers.

Then I went home thinking about her, and started praying about whether this was the woman I was supposed to marry. She went home and wrote down in her prayer journal that she liked me and "If it be Your will, give me to him and him to me." She told me later, she was dancing around really happy. But she didn't let me know all this stuff until much later.

I was staying in an American friend's house after his family had left for the US and he was finishing up a project before moving back to the US. He had an office there. My future wife called and left a message, but the guy who intercepted it (who was engaged) did not pass on the message and tried to flirt with her. Finally, someone put a message on my door. She was happy to get someone to leave a message. She didn't want to be the one to call me.

I called her. I had a trip out of town with a church group and she had a lot of ministry things she was doing. When i got back from my trip, I went to a payphone to call her. It turns out she was available to meet. I actually went to the place she was saying, kind of an informally 'adopted' mother's house, hoping to stash the bag where they couldn't see it near the front. We studied the Bible together, and she sang a worship song she had written, and we just talked.

Soon after that, I took her to dinner just about every night for four months or so. We were 'just friends' for a couple of months until I felt like a liar saying that when I introduced her. Early into our relationship, we put two and two together. She'd applied for a job as a teacher at that school I'd worked at, but after the first day, she found out what they were expecting would not fit into her schedule.

I kept praying about whether this was the one the Lord wanted me to marry. It really seemed like He was speaking to my heart, "Yes." I kept praying the same thing, and after a while, it seemed like He was speaking to my heart, "Yes" and "Why don't you believe Me?"

On the day we had that first real conversation, she'd sensed the Lord wanted her to stop and talk to me, but she was a shy Asian girl, she told Him, who didn't start conversations with men like that. So she stopped and asked her friend with the guitar if he knew a song, and I had spoken to her. Probably right after I asked her to marry me, she showed me her prayer journal about what she had written when we met. I shared with her that I started praying if we were to get married right after we had that first conversation, which was on February 15th. She took a six week mission trip with her classmates, and I proposed on July 20th, a few days after she returned. I dressed up, did the whole thing on one knee.

There was a garden outside the restaurant-- a spot I'd carefully selected since most of Jakarta is pretty ugly to look at. There was a tile walkway outside the restaurant. I'd thought about washing her feet. There was a pool out there, but it seemed to distracting and weird to wash her feet in the pool while proposing. But it rained right before I proposed, and there was a puddle of clean water on the tile from where it had just rained. So I got down on one knee, and washed her feet. In her language, I said the words from John 13, which translated in the NIV say, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand".

Then I took out the box with the ring and proposed. She was so overwhelmed, she kept saying, "This is wonderful" and didn't answer my 'will you marry me?' question. Finally, when enough tears, etc. got cleared up enough for her to response, she said 'yes.'

But we weren't engaged yet. To get engaged in her country, you have to ask the parents. I thought my Indonesian was good enough for this, but they spoke a local language, and I didn't know much of what was going on, but they agreed to a wedding, so that was good.

We had had some opposition to our union of sorts before I proposed, and I would have loved to have gotten a prophetic confirmation earlier in our relationship. When I prayed and told the Lord I believed it was His will for us to get married for certain reasons which I laid out in my prayer before the Lord, and I was going to propose and if He didn't want me to do it, to stop me, I was then absolutely certain about the whole thing. After this, and after I'd made plans to not spend time with my girlfriend to buy the ring, we went to an English service where an American evangelist I knew was ministering, but I'd not seen him since I'd met the woman I would marry.

At the end of the meeting, he called us up and gave us a prophecy about us going to many places together and ministering to many people, which seemed to imply a very long union together. It was a welcome confirmation. I told him I had plans to go get a ring. He said I should. That was a welcome bit of encouragement, which was good to have before navigating the family politics involved in getting married in my wife's people-group in Indonesia.

I met my wife on Facebook.

I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and wanted nothing to do with dating for a long time. One day for fun, I typed in "NFL" in the search bar. I am a huge NFL fan and always joked with my friends that the perfect woman for me would love football. Not one of those woman who say "he is cute" or "I like the colors of their uniform" but someone who actually knows and understands football.

After I typed "NFL" in the search bar, I didnt know what would come up. I was expecting things like fan pages and stuff like that.

It turns out that since her maiden last name started with "A" her profile came up first. I saw her picture and thought she was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen.

I requested to be her friend thinking it would just go ignored but got a message back from her asking if I knew her. I assured her that I was not one of those guys who was looking up women and explained the NFL story.

We chatted online for about a month or two and then went to dinner and a movie for our first date. We were both so nervous that we barely touched our dinner.

After the movie we went for a coffee and just chatted until well past midnight. That was on a Friday. During that weekend I met her family and she met mine and I knew that she would be the one I marry.

I proposed to her just a month before our 1 year anniversary and got married 2 years later as she was finishing her college education.

God has certainly blessed me by bringing my wife into my life
