Marguerita and Gregory
We met in June, 2007. We communicated for a couple of weeks on the computer before we had our first date. We both felt the magic. We dated for several months before introducing our children to one another. It was important thing that we shared—both of us being divorced and single parents. Greg, a father of 3 beautiful children ages 6, 4, and 2; and me, a mother of 14, 13, 8, 7, and 5 year olds. Yes...that puts us at 8 children combined! Of course there were some ups and downs, but basically we all meshed quite well and set the wedding date for just past our one year dating anniversary. We celebrate 07-07-07 as the day we "knew" we were right for one another.
We were married on July 13th and all the children were including in our intimate wedding celebration at a local park. Our families joined us from many states—coming from GA, SC, NY, PA and CA. Even my 94 year old grandmother was there to help us celebrate. We were then very blessed to have a honeymoon—the first time we were actually able to spend more than a night alone! We went to Costa Rica which was absolutely breathtaking and a very special time we will never forget. My wonderful mother and sister were gracious enough to stay with all the children so we could have that time together.
