We've heard both men and women say "the moment I knew I wanted to marry him/her..", or "I knew he/she was 'the one'..."... or that they wanted to marry this person based on how they felt or a certainty that they experienced when they first met them. This seems to happen often for some unknown reason.
Any of you married couples have had that? If anything, what made you decide this person is the one you wanted to marry?
And congrats to the newly engaged and newly married couples!

I've had relationships with a number of girls lasting from 1 to 7 years. In every one of those relationships, I never felt like she was "the one" until I met my wife.
Even in the relationships that lasted several years, there was always something in the back of my mind that was telling me it wasn't going to work. Sometimes, the girl was way too young for me, and I only stayed with her because she was hot. Other times, the girl had a short temper all the time, which I knew would make the relationship crumble eventually. Even my longest relationship (7 years) felt strange, because she was absolutely crazy about me from the start, and I kind of accepted being in a relationship with her I had never gone out with anyone at that time. I didn't love her as much as she loved me.
When I met my future wife the first time, I also didn't really think much of her. At least, I didn't go nuts over her. After the third date, I thought in my head, "this is the one I'm going to marry."
What made me think that way was that in our first few dates, we would talk for hours and hours until the restaurant closed. She would keep me laughing the entire time, and had the same sense of humor that I did. I knew that I could sit in an empty room with her for years, and we'd still be laughing away together.2
