“I met my wife for the first time in 6th grade. We were told to pair up with the person we liked, so we paired up. We dated for 19 years, and broke up for just 3 months while we were dating. I proposed to her then. I told her that I had something to say to her, and asked her to come down to the lobby. When we met, she said, ‘Why? Are you going to ask me to marry me?’ So I said ‘Yeah’. That was my first and last proposal.”
