My Dh and I did it all wrong grin, but have survived to tell the tale wink
I was a single mum when he met me with a 2yr old. The first night we met we didn't have sex but the next time when we met at my house we did because all I wanted was a bit of fun anyway.
The next day Dh took me and my DD1 grocery shopping and got loads of food for us and himself, but because we had mutual friends I knew he was a good guy so while I was a bit freaked out I just went with it.
The next day he went to work and said see you tonight and arrived for dinner, and just never really went home.
A toilet bag and a bag of clothes moved in within a week which sent me into a panic, but he was great with DD1 and great company so I kept going with the flow.
I found out 5 weeks after we met that I was pregnant! I have fertility issues so it was a BIG surprise.
I moved house a month later and he followed me. almost eight years later we have our own home and 3 children.
We got engaged when our DD2 was 3 and the same night conceived our DS -who we had been trying to conceive for 2 years!.
We soon after brought our own home then married when DS was 2 yrs old.
Sometimes I wonder what it would have been like to 'do it properly', but I think that doing it the way we did made our relationship strong. The early years were hard but so worth it. It was not how I imagined it would happen but it was so worth it grin
