So, yesterday was my 18th anniversary of being married to my lovely and patient wife.

How do I describe our marriage through games? Hmmm ... let's see...

Our dating days were full of activities, but a big one among them was old school RPG games. We did a ton of Dungeons and Dragons as well as other stuff at the time. We were for the most part, the kind that just role plays and puts most of the statistics to the side. It was fun, and a good way to socialize.

Speaking of dating activities, we did a ton of dancing. I would pick up my precious girlfriend at the University and we would hit the cheap dance places that plague downtown areas in our native city (Bogota) which are placed strategically to capture all the students coming out of class.

Just buy a couple beers to leave them sitting at the table while we cut the rug for hours on end. We are not awesome dancers, but we do enjoy doing it so very much, and apparently people like the energy we convey when doing so. Kind of reminds me we are overdue to dance some (though our aging bodies will probably complain).

Of course, we had up and downs, mostly due to me being so immature and unprepared for a good relation. My wife comes from a really neat, well centered family, while mine is as dysfunctional as it could be. Took me a while to get used to the fact people actually cared, and to learn to both give and accept stuff. Thankfully, my soon to be partner in life was patient enough to keep up with it.

I love my mother in law, but while we were "friends" she loved me. When we started dating "she hated my guts with a passion". Later on, she loved me again. I actually keep an amazing relationship with my mother in law, which allows us to bug each other in a silly way. I have always teased her about being a real witch, powerful in magic and such, and we make a lot of friendly banter around that.

I am also afraid she will turn me into a frog, so there's that.

Here is a picture of her being very happy about pulling some mind trick to win at Can't Stop:

By the way, for those that know us, I am pretty sure you figured out rather quick who got the bad end of the deal!

While my wife is gorgeous, patient, warm and loving, I am impatient, cold and quite pragmatical. Also I fell down the ugly tree, hit every branch on the way down, then climbed up for something I had forgotten and fell again.

Still she thought I was the one, and I certainly was not going to let happiness escape, so we got happily married.

I managed to get uglier along the way, while my wife still looks soooo hooooot!

Here are some pictures to prove that fact:

We got two kids, so not so much of a boom. Kids are cool. If you are married have them. Despite all the work, it is one of the really neat things about getting together. They were also a lot of fun until we discovered board gaming, but then again, by then they also wanted to be on their own.

Kidding aside, I love my kids. My daughter is close to leave for college, which probably means the younger one is going to get mighty spoiled.

I am happy we had our kids. I may not have been good at many things, and I may not be the best father, but I keep trying to be a great father. My wife is a great mother, thankfully making for my numerous faults.

Actually, about 14 years now. We immigrated during the Internet start-up explosion due to a need for technical labor. I worked really hard and realized my potential as a software engineer. My lovely wife followed me here, away from her family and friends, and dealing with a whole new society. Our son was born here. We grew and prospered and learned how to be a part of this great nation. A couple weeks ago we became citizens, and we could not be happier. We'll keep on making every effort to make this nation that allowed us to get as far as our dreams would takes us the best place to live in.

We'll see how it goes. Having our kids relatively young means we'll have a lot to do once they decide to start their own lives. We'll keep on playing our games and growing the collection, and take it from there. One day at a time. With such good company, the horizon is ample and within reach.
