When you ask a couple how they met, usually they both try to tell the story at the same time while constantly interrupting each other to try and make it seem more interesting than "we were at a bar." Just because the first time two people made eye contact wasn't a fireworks-worthy moment of serendipitous fate doesn't mean a couple isn't meant to be together. Still, a good story for dinner parties is always fun to pull out of your back pocket and when someone says "anyway, we're married now," even the most dead-to-romance people among us can find it difficult not to gush.
So, when a recent Reddit user asked the internet, "what's your 'anyway, we’re married now' story?" couples with unique and romantic origin stories were ready to share. (Shockingly, "he was a vampire and I was a teen with tasty blood" and "he was a boy wizard and I was his best friend's little sister" did not make the list).
