I met my wife while serving in the Army stationed in Germany in 1985. I'm half German, half French and shortly after being stationed in Germany I made a trip to see my German relatives for the first time.

My relatives own a Gasthaus. I have a cousin who is my age. We started drinking one evening in the gasthaus with some of his friends and in came my wife with her friends. We hit it off that evening and 5 years later got married.

How did you meet your wife?

My wife is from a different country, New Jersey. That place might be a different planet. I met her when I was in the Army. I ran up behind her and scared her on the way into our apartment building. Just like James Brown. Scare them womenz into liking you.

My wife is from Scotland, but her parents are German (here dad had been in the Afrika Korps and been a POW in the USA). She has many relatives in Germany, both from the East and the West. (When she speaks German it's with a West Scots accent.[:)] ) She studied medicine at university. I spent much of my childhood in Germany (as well as elsewhere- my dad was in the USAF) and went to German schools, then to German university. I was going to grad school in Freiburg, and a pretty brown haired woman walked into an introductory Swedish language class that I had to take, and sat down. It was not a course I was looking forward to taking, but it was a gut course, so, what the heck. For her, it was the one non-medical course she took at college, ever. I took one look at her, said to myself, "That's for me- I'm gonna marry that one". Two years later, we were married. Fifteen years and three children later, Mrs (or should I say: Frau) 95th Foot and I are still together, happily. An, yes, she's still a British citizen, and our kids are British/American as well.

My wife was born in the USA, but sometimes I think she's from Mars... Does that count?

I was assigned to Panama shortly after my divorce was final. I met my Panamanian wife at a party about four months after I arrived. Couldn't be happier!!!

She's a Filipina, and we met when I went to the nearest bar because I NEEDED a beer, and it just happened to be Karaoke night.
