I met my sweetheart in the summer of 2003. We played beach volleyball together. He was the best player on the team, I was the worst. My roommate at the time was a good friend of his. She saw that there was chemistry there and was upset about it. Not because she was interested in him (she denied many times), but because he was her friend first. I actually didn't see or talk to him for 6 months because she made such a big deal about it. Since she was my roommate, I wanted to keep the peace even though I thought it was childish.
Winter 2004, he invited a bunch of friends over for paella night at his place including me and my roommate. She didn't go because I was going. At that point I realized how silly the whole thing was and that if we wanted to spend time together we should. We started dating in spring 2004 and were married one year later.
6 years later, I'm glad I went with my instincts. I'm not friends with my old roommate any more.

Reading your post Takoda, I have to say I agree with all of your very thoughtful points and tips for a good marriage. I have been with my husband for 20 years now (married for 15) and we rarely fight, mostly because we do follow what you said above and respect each other. I especially think about what I say to him FIRST (and I know he does too) because you can NEVER take it back and it can really be harmful to the marriage. Even things said in a joking or teasing manner can sometimes be too much. Take a second or two to cool down and think before you say it, it'll save you alot of heartache.
