There was once a woman who had been married twice. Her first marriage lasted only a few months before her husband left her for another man. Her second marriage was a three-year sentence of misery, filled with battles. After two, she swore she was done, and resolved to simply go from relationship to relationship, with none of them lasting.

There was once a man who had never been married. His parents' marriage, which was filled with relentless abuse and very little love, left him very cynical. However, he never stopped hoping. He went from relationship to relationship, but none of them lasted.

This woman and this man met, and formed a terrific friendship. They served as each other's shoulders to cry on and sounding boards to vent to. For years, they saw each other at their worst as their relationships collapsed, some even between mutual friends.

Then one night, after a lot of drink, they found that their friendship has suddenly become a relationship of "friendship with benefits," and they enjoyed it... a lot! They stayed this way for a while, until one day, the woman says, "Um. I'm preggers."

The man says, "Huh?! I thought you were on the pill?!"

She replies, "I was!" Then together, they exclaim, "!@#$%!"

Five says later, they have a very simple civil ceremony with a few of their friends (not even their parents--a crime that her mother will never forgive them for, even if she's grateful that she didn't have to spend a dime on the ceremony).

Seven months later, they have a beautiful baby daughter, and can only look at each other with big, goofy grins as they wonder what the hell are they going to do now.

Now, nearly 16 years after that, they are still together, and still happy (especially when the kid is asleep ;\-\) ), and still in love, and just grateful that the sex is still good. How they did it, they don't really know. If they had to duplicate it, they probably couldn't, and maybe even wouldn't. But here they are.

And I'm sorry, but this story does NOT have a happy ending, because the story really hasn't ended yet. I do, however, hope that she and I and our daughter will remain happy.
