How and where did you and your spouse meet?
We both were members of a group of people organizing holiday trips for handicapped persons. Our first trip with seven handicapped persons and seven people caring for them, two weeks on Texel/Netherlands, was the perfect opportunity to get to know each other thoroughly.
What was it that attracted you to them?
Her outstanding and everlasting cheerfulness, her philosophy on life which matches quite good with mine, and her kind heart.
How long have you been married?
For nearly three years.
How long did you know your spouse before you started dating them,
That's a tricky question, regarding the kind of special circumstances we met.
During the two weeks, we learned a lot more about each other than we would have during months of "normal" dating: We saw each other working, caring for other people, and we talked many a night during dawn, after the rest already had gone to bed.
Our first "date" was a week or so after we had returned (and recovered) from the trip, with a queasy feeling how we would perceive each other after such an intense time...
and how long after you started dating them before you married them?
We married six years later, but would probably have waited another year or so if not for the catholic church (a rather complex story).
Have you, at any time in the past broken up with your current partner?
Whatever the reason for your questions, I wish you all the best...
