Our wedding date had to be stepped up because he had to deploy earlier than expected.  April 1st was the only availabe date for officiant, place, etc.  Kept waiting for my finacee to, instead of saying "I do" to instead say "April Fools" in jest.  I would have died had he done so! All's well that end's well?  We've been at it a very long time!!  <smiley face>
