I just realized I never did this...

Your Name: Jaime

Your Age: 32

Your Husband/Wife's Name: Adrienne or AJ

Wedding Date: Filed legal domestic partnership on Feb 15, 2008.  We're planning a wedding for sometime next spring, no official date yet.

How Did You Guys Meet?: The internet.  She messaged me on OKCupid and after racking up some epic cell phone bills, we met in person less than two weeks later.  We were living three hours apart at the time, so I went to visit every weekend and then we moved in together about two months later.

Kids Ages & Names (If Any): None together (and we plan to keep it that way), but she has a 21 year old son from a previous marriage, and a newborn granddaughter.

City/State/Country: Portland, OR, USA

The Best Thing About Being Married? Being together every night, the security of knowing we're both in it for the long haul.

The Worst Thing About Being Married? Figuring out the financial issues.  We're not even close to well off, but my wife grew up very upper-middle class and tends to spend as though she still were.  We've recently decided that I'm taking over the finances.  I'm just better at being poor and living on less money than she is.

Anything else you'd like to share: Everyone probably figured it out already, but we're not straight.
