I'm married. My wife and I were friends in high school, never dated in high school, were just friends in high school. We ended up going to the same community college, and during that time, our friendship turned into a relationship. We dated for six years, all through college, and then after I graduated from college, then we were married that summer. We've been married now for six-and-a-half years, which I can't believe it's already that long. It's been great, I mean, it's definitely, for us, a big part of our relationship is really kind of communicating, and you know, talking about, you know, issues she may have or that I may have. It's definitely, we can't avoid the fact, that you know, that I'm in a wheelchair, I have a spinal-cord injury, and there is stuff that comes along with that. Early on, we really had to talk about how that had an effect on the relationship and, you know, how it could slow things down, or kind of hinder activities. But, we did a really good job of communicating, we're very open with each other, very open about how she felt and also very open about how I felt, and it's worked, it's worked out really well. We have a very strong relationship and we get along great—she puts up with a lot of my crap.
