Welp guess it's about time I posted on here as I've been talking about my wife and such but haven't announced it.

 

So a little back story - we met by chance in that my friend invited her to an outing that she didn't end up making so we spent some time together that first time. Goes to say she didn't like me at first but then eventually warmed up after she spoke to me again 2 weeks later. We hung out, saw a movie, went to dinner and then 6.5yrs later we got married. :wub:

 

We only had a small thing now as she's German and has a contract for her new job already there (i'm in the USA). So we'll have the big ceremony later once I move to Germany (need to learn the language first - yikes! :s ).

 

So no little SHoTTa35's yet for all the people that's gonna ask, oddly enough women always ask that right away when someone gets married. :rofl:

 

So that's all for now... thanks for the warm wishes in advanced. :pint:

 

(and thanks for the warnings and the "it's all down hill from here" :omg:  comments too :p)

Congrats again!

 

(Also, as someone who doesn't want kids, you don't have to worry about this woman prodding you about spawning. Especially not right after the wedding! That's just silly.)

 

Germany is great! But you've been there, you know what it's like. The language is tough to master with books, but easy-ish when you are immersed in it. And, especially if you are near a big city, there are enough people who speak English well enough for you to get by with some flailing and gesturing if you are lost for a particular word :laugh:

 

You should speak to Tom--he moved there from England a few months ago and I think he's doing fairly well. He could probably give you some tips. :)

 

Best of luck and congrats again on deine neue Frau ^_^

I heard it's not that hard to learn coming from english. Unless i'm mistaken both are germanic derived languages.

 

Anyway congratz man.

You'll probably pick up German just fine, especially if you are going to be living there.  The language structure is easier to follow than English, and for an English speaker most of the sounds come naturally.

 

Congratulations!  I got married last November and it has been nice.  I had my fun in my 20's but I don't want to go back to that.  Having someone to depend on and that can depend on you is a real relief for life.  I'd say my stress levels have never been lower.

I've been doing Rosetta Stone but that was more just playing around long ago. More recently I've dug into DuoLingo for the app (it syncs with the website so I can continue on my laptop when I get home) and I like it better. So i'm learning per say and my wife tries to talk to me in German instead of English to help me get used to hearing it but yeah, still need some more practice. I'll need to get my A1 certificate before getting my Visa to move there so gotta do that soon!

 

Thanks again for the kind words :)

I have been single since late 90s. I have not found the right one..  :crazy:

 

I must be uglier than a Star Trek moderator on this forum.

The best way to learn a new language is to interact with people. I tried to learn english with a software and some classes but it was mostly a waste of time.

 

I learned a lot more by participating in forums and playing WoW and Xbox Live games. The only downside is people will laugh at you when you do stupid mistakes ;)
