This survey has been floating around Facebook for awhile, so I thought it would be fun to complete it and share it here.
What are your middle names?
Mine is Courtney, his is Kenneth
How long have you been together?
4.5 years, 5 if you count dating
How long did you know each other before you started dating?
Hard to say...we didn't know each other and we never really started "dating". We met online and talked incessantly until we decided this was "it" and we would probably end up marrying each other. We talked online for 3 months by the time I realized he would be my future husband.
Who asked whom out?
Doesn't really apply
How old are each of you?
I'm 25, he's 31
Whose siblings do you see the most?
Mark's brother, his only sibling. He lives down the street with his wife and 2 girls and we see them almost every day. I have no siblings.
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Kids, hands down. Life was easy before kids. Now we have to figure out how to "stay ourselves" and retain some semblance of the lovey-doveyness we had before kids when we have these little people running around us all day.
Did you go to the same school?
No...he went to UC Davis (in CA), I went to Southern Connecticut State University.
Are you from the same home town?
No. Mark grew up in Morgan Hill, CA and I grew up in a few different towns in Connecticut.
Who is smarter?
Mark thinks I'm smarter, but I think he's smarter. He's a genius at math and maps. I have superhuman hearing and ninja-like skills. So maybe it's a draw.
Who is the most sensitive?
Probably me. I've gotten exponentially better since we were first married, though.
Where do you eat out most as a couple?
We just found an yummy and affordable Italian restaurant 15 mins away, so we've been eating there a lot lately.
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
We drove across the country from Connecticut to California. We've never been out of the country together (or apart, for that matter)
Who has the craziest exes?
Who has the worst temper?
Me. Having 2 children has brought it out of me and with God's help I've learned to control it. You'd never know it if you just met me though. I'm normally very soft-spoken and quiet, but when you give me 2 screaming children, both hanging on me and both wanting something but unable to express what that is, I can definitely get annoyed. I grew up with a yelling mom and don’t want that for my kids, so I’ve been motivated to nip that in the bud.
Who does the cooking?
Who is the neat-freak?
Probably me, but we're both organized people
Who is more stubborn?
Neither of us is stubborn
Who hogs the bed?
Mark, but it's understandable when you're 13 inches taller and 100 lbs heavier than your wife.
Who wakes up earlier?
Me. I wake up at 5:30am every morning except on weekends. He wakes up around 6:30
Where was your first date?
Empire State Building
Who is more jealous?
How long did it take to get serious?
Who eats more?
Depends if I'm pregnant at the time...if I am, then me. Otherwise I'd say Mark.
Who does the laundry?
Who's better with the computer?
Who drives when you are together?
