15 Old Married Couples Share The (Un)Romantic Story Of How They Met

Not all love stories start out like the movies, but that’s okay. Here are some of the most unromantic stories about couples who ended up living happily ever after:

“We met at a homeless shelter. We hit it off, got back on our feet, got a place together, and are getting married.” — onlysane1

“We have the same first name and our last names are one letter off. We kept getting each other’s mail.” — strangedigital

“My dog got her dog pregnant. I don’t know how those two met because he’s often chilling in my fenced backyard (without a leash, only a collar with my number in it) so he must have escaped and had a good time AND come back all in under one hour. One day she called me and yelled at me for not neutering him and letting him roam freely. I yelled back at her for not spaying her dog and told her that my boy isn’t walking around on the streets freely. We had a big argument about everything, my dog is the only one who could have gotten hers pregnant so I couldn’t just do nothing. We talked it out and fell in love shortly after the puppies came.” — Nikita_Woti

“My folks met when they ran for cover in the same spot during a drive-by shooting.” — tj_xraybanvision

“We had Spanish class together and we were both shy. So when we picked partners for projects/assignments we were always the last two who didn’t have partners.” — 3141592ab

“She tripped on the gutter. While everyone around her helped her, I just stood there trying to contain my laugh. She still tells this story to other people up to this day.” — BetterOffAsADolphin

“I was donating blood and I hit it off with the lady next to me. She seemed to like my weird sense of humor and I think our blood bags touched.” — ronburger

“Working at a residential treatment center for emotionally disturbed adolescents. There was a riot on campus. It took two shifts of staff to get the kids quieted down and back in bed. We were supposed to get off work at 11pm but were there until 1am. Guy I was working with was friends with my roommate. So after we got off, I said, ‘I’m going home to get drunk. Want to come?’ That was 42 years ago. We’ve been married for 37 years and have two adult children.” — awhq

“Online gaming. I lashed out publicly because I was emotional and they sent a message apologizing because they genuinely thought it was their fault I was angry. I cried, we talked, and we started talking because guildies were supposed to get along.” — IdealShapesOfSound

“I was eating tacos in a mall food court. He walked by me and I thought he was cute but then I started choking on my taco and he looked at me weird and walked away. My friend with me went and got his number for me. 7 years ago. He told me he thought I was laughing at him. Thanks Taco Bell.” — Milky02

“I don’t remember meeting my husband. I was a freshman in high school and it was during band camp. I got a text from him one night and pretended to know who he was because I was too embarrassed that I didn’t know everyone’s names yet.” — chocolate_turtles

“My ex-wife introduced us.” — KosherCowboy0932

“I met my wife in 1989, in psychiatric hospital. Married for 29 years now.” — MiaKica

“My husband and I met while he was dating one of my friends in high school. Whoops. To my credit, they broke up after she cheated on him multiple times, so I don’t feel like I violated girl code too badly.” — ostentia

“I got his number from a classmate so I could ask him if he knew where I could find weed, didn’t even know his name at the time.” — flaminhot-cheeto
