Happily married people of reddit, when did you realize your marriage was awesome and what makes it awesome?

I met my husband at 24 Hour Fitness. I was 20 at the time and he was 30. I used to try to get his attention, but constantly failed. I learned and started timing my workouts around the times I knew he would be in.

In Dec 2011, I wrote a Yelp review on the gym stating that the gym was small, clean, and provided a friendly staff. I ended the review with this statement, "To the sexy who has huge arms and comes in on a motorcycle practically everyday: you're a pleasure to look at." The manager ended up telling him and a few days later, he asked to "work in with me" on the hamstring curl machine. I played along so I asked him to "teach me how to do squats". A few days later he called me out on my Yelp review while I was on the elliptical and asked for my number so we could possibly work out.

I texted him immediately and I also I asked him for a ride home that evening thinking I'd end up on the back of his motorcycle with my arms wrapped around his body. He said yes and to my surprise ended up talking me home in his 1991 Toyota Corolla.

In the car, he had me convinced that that was his only car since he was an ex convict, he was struggling with a crack addiction, and he had to exchange sexual favors to his mechanic. I was so blinded by love that I thought, this guy is nuts...and hot so I still want to bang him.

He took me out for pho the next night post gym and revealed to me that everything was a lie. He also revealed to me a few months later that he did that because he was actually interested.

We hung out EVERY SINGLE DAY since and got married after 3.5 months. I was 23 and he was 33. We got our names tattooed on each other and we haven't spent the night apart from each other since the first night I spent the night. I knew I wanted to marry him a week after I started sleeping with him (a month into the relationship). He had told me he felt the same and would lay in bed next to me trying to come up with reasons not to be married to me. We are inseparable. We are each others twin flame.
