Darrin started life in Wellington and grew up on the North Shore. He cruised through life playing rugby and then had his first baby girl, Paige. Lost his hair and got a real job.
Wanda started a year later in Wellington, then moved and grew up in Whangarei. Wanda wanted a successful and a rich experienced life. She planned it and got it.
And then they met!
One afternoon Wanda saw a handsome, she would say gorgeous, man ordering a drink. Being a smart girl she decided to buy a drink and strike up a conversation. As usual, her smarty-ness was right and this guy was brilliant. Darrin was blown away by this girl. Sure, being picked up in a bar wasn’t unusual for him, but even his A game lines were no match for this girl.
Before you knew it, a few dates had past, met the friends, met the family and had a kid….!?! Yes, they were in love and love makes you do weird things and so it was for Darrin and Wanda.
After Paris was born and with Paige around they decided to have another. Darrin insisted on a boy and so Parker was born. But Darrin had trouble with all the P names and so they changed his name to Hunter.
So with careers, a family, and saving for a house Darrin sat down and said,
“This is what married life should be like.”
“We’re not married!” was the reply.
"Are you sure? We have kids, compulsory jobs to support the kids, we are saving for a house. I have no control over my money. You get everything if I die and I have the magical infinite job list called Dadmin. Sounds like were married."
"I don’t see a ring on this finger!"
After Darrin realised, she wasn’t being rude he also noted she was right again.
Now what to do about it!
