Marriage & raising a kid is a team sport.

Remember that song about a couple sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g? This month’s two feature couples took that song and ran with it. First came love, then came marriage, then came the baby in the baby carriage. But of course, before there was love, there were sports.

Julia & Eddie’s Story

“We met playing ultimate frisbee 10 years ago. Married 4 years ago in Vegas and just had a baby girl!”

Well, there you have it. Just like on the frisbee field, Julia & Eddie waste no time getting to the point. Play sports, get married, have kids. Got it.

Then comes Chris & Norma Jean’s Story


“We met on the soccer field in the middle of a game. He laughed at me for getting hit in the face with the ball. We became good friends, started dating a year later, and now we are in our 5th year of marriage. We have a wonderful baby boy who loves kicking the soccer ball around already.”

This isn’t the first story we’ve shared where a ball to the face has proven effective in the love department. Who needs to get hit on when you can just get hit, am I right? (PS I am totally kidding and do not encourage or support being hit in the face.)

Sounds to me like all you single folk out there searching for a mate need to either hop in a tree or play team sports. Easy enough.
