Every relationship is different! For some couples, first came love and then came marriage! For others, first came love, then came children, buying a house, adopting a four-legged friend (or two or three), then marriage! For you, first came love and then came ____?

What’s your love story?

    First came love, and then came moving in together, and then came adopting our kitten (who is still technically a kitten but definitely, definitely fat cat sized)! We are hoping that a house comes next in our story!

    First came love, then moving in together, then just bought our first house and move in next week, and will be married in May of 2019. We both have a son each from previous relationships who are both 7.. but hoping to try for a baby after we get married Also thinking of getting a puppy after we move into our house. We have two cats, but those were already mine.. and he's not a cat person LOL so we are wanting a dog to add to the family.

    First came love, then buying a house together, then adopting a dog, then marriage! We have been very careful to save the "then comes babies" for after the marriage lol! Preferably after "then comes buying a second house"!

    I bought our house six months before I met him, he moved in six months after we met. We adopted our dog about six months after that. We broke timing with waiting longer for the engagement but will be married on the year from the engagement and will wait a year to start trying for kids. A picture of our fur baby 😄
