I Married A Complete Stranger And It Was The Best Thing I Could’ve Done

When I walked down the aisle to marry my husband, I had no idea what hand he wrote with. I barely knew his favorite color. This is just one of the things that happens when you are someone whomarried a complete stranger.

You see, the date of my wedding was exactly eight weeks after our first date. And it was the best decision I’ve ever made.

My husband and I had technically known each other for 15 years, but the word technically is a really important caveat here. We went to high schooltogether,but we may have spoken about twice for about five minutes throughout that entire period. We weren’t friends. We didn’t run in the same circles. And we certainly had no extracurricular activities in common.

Fast forward to 12 years after our high school graduation a total of just over 15 years from when we had first met: We both found ourselves in our hometown for the first time in forever.

I hadquit my job as an attorney to travel full-timejust a year prior. My younger sister was babysitting my puppy, and I hadstopped in our hometown to see her for 48 hours between coming back from Cuba and flying to Guatemala. He, on the other hand, had just graduated from chiropractic school and was back home studying for his boards, making plans for what to do next.

I had no idea he was in town. Though we had been friends on Facebook since college, we weren’t the type of friends whoever commented on each other’s status updates or really kept up with each other, and he barely showed up in my news feed at all.
