Your Courtship Clock -- Decoded

DW and I met during final exams in 1975.* At the end of the semester we hitchiked across the country.* We got married about three weeks after we met.

According to this article, we never had a chance.* *

NOTE: both of the above links worked for me . . . but not every time. You can try a google search on: courtship clock decoded

This will give you a couple of options to get to this Redbook article.

Re: Your Courtship Clock -- Decoded

my brother and sil married after knowing each other for a month. three children and i think it is 13 years later, still going strong. they have an excellent relationship.

i fell for my best bud the second i met him. our mothers had tried to hook us up for years but we kept avoiding meeting each other. but then we kept each other laughing from our first words together. we had amazing fun. our relationship lasted 10 years until an accident took him.

SG, I edited your link to bring up a web page, but MSN claims that it can't find the page that you linked... either MSN is broke or you'll have to fix my attempt at a fix.

For the rest of you who are wondering how to do that, click on the URL icon (the globe, third from left in the second row). *Text will pop up in your post that looks like this: *<left bracket>url<right bracket><left bracket>/url<right bracket>. *(The "left bracket is this character: *[ and the "right bracket"is this character: *] *If I tried to show the actual symbol it'd probably be hidden by the software).

Once you have the URL icon's text, add an "=" sign to the first "url" and follow it up with your URL. *When it's done it'll look like this: *[url=http://www.yourwebsite.com<right bracket>. *Then insert your pithy text between the first right bracket and the second left bracket...

EDIT: SG, cube_rat, I edited the link before you guys posted. When I click on it now, I get MSN's "page not available" screen.

Sorry about that, SG, can you post the article's title or some text to search for on MSN?

Re: Your Courtship Clock -- Decoded

Their story link is locked in a permanent address loop.

The people who are getting the results properly probably have an ISP with a content proxy cache and are getting it from there.

You might get it here...
