Spouse Survey - Answered by Suzanne

1. How did you meet your spouse? We met at Dick Clark's American Bandstand in KC. I was waitressing. He asked me out in front of all his friends. I said yes, so as not to embarrasses him. He gave me his business card and hotel room number and we made plans for the next night. I stood him up. I figured, being on business he would be out of town by Wedn. not so. He came back in the next two nights and finally after making calls to his office and talking with his secretary and running a background check (oh yes, I really did). I went out with him on a Friday night.

2. Was it love at first sight? I don't know if love at first sight, but I'll never forget that first time our eyes met.

3. Did you know right away that you wanted to marry this person? By the end of our 1st date, I knew he was special and that I wanted to spend my life with him.

4. How long did you and your spouse date? We dated 1 year, got engaged, then eloped 3 months later.

5. What was your best date with your spouse before you were married? Our 1st Christmas together. We lived 3 hours apart and he had sent a care package filled with 12 gifts, 12 cards and a CD of love songs for me to open. Then he came up to KC and went to a Christmas tree farm, picked out a cute tree, went and bought decorations, decorated the tree, went to the plaza and walked around and did our shopping, then to Crown Center to eat out. It was just an entire day of fun. My face hurt from smiling so much.

6. How long have you been married? 8 years New Years Day

7. Where did you go on your honeymoon? We didn't really take a honeymoon. We were wanting to buy a house and that was why we ended up eloping to avoid all the expense of a wedding and put it towards a home. We got married in a beautiful 1900's mansion that also was a bed and breakfast. We had 1 night there.

8. Was it as good as you anticipated it would be? It was perfect. I love old homes. I think he worries more about that we never had a honeymoon than I do. He has taken me on several weekends away and I'm good with just him.

9. Are you happy with your marriage? Yes. I'm very blessed.

10. Do you secretly wish you had married someone else? No. He is what most men hope to someday become. (most days anyway)

11. Does your spouse wish they had married someone else? I hope no, but I'm sure there at times he understands why my dad told him at the wedding that he doesn't want me back :)

12. How long were you married before you had kids? 1 year and 4 months, I sometimes wish we would have had more time with just the 2 of us, but we were not the youngest when we married and he had always wanted kids, they have now grown on me too.

13. Do you want more children? crazy, but yes.
