Getting married July 22, 2005

Hi Carrie,

You asked for our story. I will try to tell you a shortened version of it. You already have our pictures. My fiance was "Mrmarkmorg". My screen name was "Golde".

We both joined Catholic Mingle in the fall of 2003. He had just gone through a very hurtful divorce. Mark had been married for 19 years. When
we started talking, he was grieving the loss of his marriage. It had fallen apart despite all his efforts to save it. He has two sons, 15 and 16.

I got divorced in 2000. I also had a very long marriage of 21 years. It fell apart in spite of all my efforts to save it. I have two daughters, 19 and 24.

Both of us were very strong practicing Catholics. As you can see, we had a lot in common. First, we were just friends. I had been through a lot of the stuff he was going through when I was divorced. I was just his shoulder to cry on and a good listener. I was being very careful not to get involved since Mark was just divorced. I thought I might get hurt. So, Mark and I remained friends.
We liked each other so much we wanted to talk more and more. Soon, we were emailing, chatting on Catholic Mingle, and talking on the phone. He was in Texas and I was in Missouri. Eventually, Mark wanted to come up and meet me. He did. We felt just as comfortable in person as we did online or on the phone. Before long, I went to visit him in Texas. Soon, we were both buying airline tickets. It seemed we could only make it about 3 weeks, then two weeks. We were falling in love. He asked me to marry him in August of 2004. We are getting married this Friday, July 22, 2005. He moved to Missouri. His boys come and stay with us in the summers and every other school break we can get them. The boys and I have developed a great relationship and I love them. My girls really
like "Mrmarkmorg" as well. This summer we had three teenagers with us--his boys and my daughter, who was home from college. We are very happy and grateful that God let us find each other in this big world.
