Too much doom and gloom on this page, here's something heartwarming

quote:

A couple who spoke for the first time when the man dialled a wrong number have got married.

Elizabeth Bennett and Brian Woodward tied the knot at St Peter's Church, Ickburgh, Norfolk, on Saturday, nine years after their chance conversation.

Mrs Woodward said he was "really rude" when they first spoke but he called back the following day to apologise.

"A couple of weeks later he turned up at Thetford train station and hasn't been away since," she said.

Mrs Woodward, 25, said her husband, 26, and originally from Leamington Spa, was the worse for wear when he made the first phone call and "didn't know what he was doing".

"He popped the question the day after my 21st birthday - four years ago," she said.

Mrs Woodward said the wedding on Saturday "went perfectly well" and the weather was "better than we hoped for".

One of the four bridesmaids, Hannah Hamilton, said the day had been "filled with happiness and love".

The couple, who live in Mundford, Norfolk, plan to go on honeymoon in the new year.

I'm not entirely sure why I find that odd. Okay, maybe not odd. Erm...intriguing.

Depending on the gap they could be in the same class at school agewise

My brother/SIl have been together since they were 15/16. I think it's amazing anyone lasts that long when they get together so young.

Just seems a little strange. He was "worse for wear" when they first spoke on the phone. AT 16/17 exactly how worse for wear was he? How did he know where to find her at the train station? Did he stalk her? The holes in the story are leaving too much room for misinterpretation. Did they know each-other already? Would perhaps their parents, especially hers, have frowned upon the notion of hooking up with a stranger they just met on the phone? Maybe I'm just being too cynical.

Still, I have to admire his persistence. When I was 16/17 I could barely form a sentence when it came to talking to girls, let alone stalk them into submission.

I got waaay more drunk when i was 16 than at any other time in my life! And Iied to my parents about how I knew my first serious gf, because I didn't want to say "met her through the internet", so I assume she had some similar subterfuge.

I was a sheltered teenager. And by that I don't mean I was in a shelter.

Oh and sorry, Hoody, I didn't mean to be a buzz-kill. Man.
