My husband and I first met 15 years ago when I was just starting out my Navy career. I had gotten to my first command and he was a Naval Aviator, flying in the F-14. He was married at the time, and for the next year, we would stop and say hi and then gradually we would sit in his office for hours sometimes just talking and becoming friends.

He transferred and I heard nothing from him until April 2002. He had said he had been trying to find me for the last few years and came across my name listed on He wrote me to say hi and let me know what had been going on with his life and asked me how I've been doing. He had gotten divorced and retired from the Navy. He lives in New Jersey and I live in Central Ca. It just so happened, he was going to be coming out to Ca. the following week and asked if I would consider joining him for the weekend in San Francisco. I agreed and spent the next week full of excitement.

While driving to San Francisco, complete terror overcame me since we were only friends when first meeting and had never seen each other socially. I was thinking to myself, what am I doing going to see this man that I haven't seen in 13 years and had never seen in anything other then a Navy uniform. The minute we saw each other, the fear was gone. While walking, he grabbed my hand and I knew then that he was the man for me.

We discussed the distance between us over the weekend and both agreed that we knew it wouldn't be an issue forever and we wanted to be together no matter what. That was 16 months ago and we got married a little over a month ago and couldn't be happier, unless of course we were living together. We still have 4 years until we will be in the same household, but we just come up with new ways to help to bring us closer when we're apart.

For our wedding, the minister who married us gave us a book of short stories, and every night before I go to bed, I write through the email on of the stories to my husband. This way we are reading the book together. I will for no reason send him a card, just to tell him I love him.

Really the distance does not matter, it's how much two people want to be together and if their love for each other is strong enough to withstand the distance and sacrifices that need to be made. I know my love for my husband will hold up until we are together.
