He had already told my parents. He made me think that he had gotten me a motorcycle helmet as a gift. He handed me this big gift bag that ended up being stuffed with newspaper.

Yep, it was all so fat for us. I know it sounds so cliche, but it really was love at first sight.
I KNEW he was the one, I told my Mom the first night "I'm going to marry him!"
He called my Mom and asked her permission, she said yes.
He got his orders and was being stationed in England, so it was either a 3 year engagement long distance or marry him and go with him. I couldn't imagine not being with him. It never even entered my mind to wait for him, I loved him and married him on spring break. I came home, he flew to England, I finished school and the following February I moved to England. My Mom was ok with it. MY family was really supportive. HIS family wasn't AT ALL!! Surprising, right? LOL
