Here on Champagne and Cake, I love to hear and share the guys perspective on things. Recently I talked to five guys who shared with me when they knew that their wife was ‘the one.’ Needlessly to say some of the stories are swoon worthy and very interesting. But I am pretty positive they don’t top my dad’s story, he tells me he knew my mom was the one at age 4! lol Check out their defining moments when they knew she was ‘the one’ and don’t forget to grab your tissues!
1. Take a Deep Breath, She is ‘The One.’
I once heard an old man joke and say that one day you wake up and you I say to yourself I am not going anywhere, and she isn’t either so I guess we need to make this official. My story wasn’t quite that easy, but I was already living with her, and I knew we both weren’t going anywhere. I would sit and listen to my single friends talk about how they were chasing women around town. Going on meaningless dates, spending unnecessary money, and having to waste time to get close to someone that they aren’t sure would even be the one. Then I would listen to my friends that had someone special and how they would talk about how they would need to get away from time to time to get some space. And here I was with someone that I love, and I didn’t care if I was with her all the time or not.
I did wake up one morning and just look at her for about three to five minutes while she was sleeping with over a thousand things running through my mind. Things like how I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, how beautiful she is, how I couldn’t see myself with anyone but her, how lucky I am, and how lucky I am to have her. It was at that moment that I knew that I was going to marry this woman. I started doing typical man stuff like talking myself out of it. Starting little arguments to see how mad I would get, but she never bit on any of that she just kept her head up and told me to shut up. Next thing I know I was in the jewelry department of Macy’s. The guy asked me what I was looking for, and I was about to walk off, but I thought about how happy she would be, and I took a deep breath and said an engagement ring. Once I spent the money I knew that she had to be my wife because I only had 90 days to return it and Christmas morning when I planned to propose, was 100 plus day away. -Jonathan M.
2. She Was There When I Needed Her Most
I realized my wife was the one when at a point in time I felt like I was at my lowest in life she was there. She told me things I needed to hear to help me realize my full potential. She showed her love for me, and I knew then that she would be the woman I would want as my wife. – Alonzo M.
3. From Our First Kiss
Well, the first time I knew my wife was the one was when I kissed her for the first time in the drive through window at the Dairy Queen on Spring Hill Ave at 9:15 on July 10, 1993. That was the day we officially became a couple. We met in late January earlier and were really good friends before that but I still had too much street in me, and I wanted to clean my act up first lol. -Kelvin C.
4. That Special Feeling
I guess you can say my story is a little different. When I first saw my wife, I thought to myself she is beautiful. However, I wasn’t set on her being “the one.”
After almost a year of dating, I begin to feel something I’ve never felt before. Now I have been in other relationships, and I’ve told other females that I loved them, but this feeling was something different. A feeling a couldn’t shake and I didn’t want that feeling to leave.
She is the type of woman you can have hours and hours of conversation with, she has a sense of humor, and on top of that, my family loved her. From that moment on, I knew she was the one for me. She is the type of women that looked passed my flaws, she understood that no one is perfect, and that made me fall her. In the word, it says “he who finds a wife, finds a good thing” and I can tell you, that word isn’t lying. – LeMaris A.
5. Love Knows, No Distance
I knew after a few months that my wife would always be in my life. After many conversations, I knew that she had a lot of qualities that I wanted my wife to have. She’s caring, loving, great with kids, and a hard worker. I knew that I wanted my wife to be a great mother and I knew she would be one and that she is. We always took care of each other even when we didn’t see eye to eye. No matter how much we fought, we would always make up. Our longest breakup was for 12 hrs, and I was back in her arms.
Many of my friends who are now married always ask, How did you know she was the one? I knew she was the one when I finished school and moved fours hours away. The distance drove me crazy, and I couldn’t stop thinking about her and want to be with her. The love, passion, and compassion we had were all I needed in life. To make it even more evitable, no other woman could get my attention by any shape form or fashion. She was my everything. I loved her dearly and didn’t want anyone else to have her. I was blessed and still blessed to have a woman who’s a great mother, wonderful wife, and thoughtful friend. I’m still appalled at how a guy like me got so lucky. -Alfred G.
