View Matt and Julie

In their own words

What first attracted you to your partner?

Julie: Matt wrote a short email that made me laugh.
Matt: Attractiveness and I liked her profile.

How did your relationship progress?

Julie: I eventually said to Matt that we had to meet up because I would have been so disappointed had we not clicked when we met. We met in a pub, Matt was standing waiting for me with a glass of wine in his hand. We just chatted and chatted and didn't want the pub to shut! After that,we literally saw each other every day and Matt put his house on the market within a month. We found out I was pregnant in November! We were utterly delighted. We knew we were meant to be together. We had a gorgeous son, Joshua, the following July, and got married on May 14th 2006.
Matt: We emailed each other just a couple of times and then we were texting for about 2 weeks and got on really well.

What made you realise the relationship was serious?

Julie: We both said on the first date that it felt really weird, but a good weird. The feeling that you never want to be apart from each other. After 2 days,we were talking about what the future would hold.
Matt: We have the same thoughts, beliefs and morals.

What plans do you have for your relationship in the future?

Julie: I think we've just about covered everything for now!
Matt: We hope to remain this happy forever and to grow closer and closer.
