How wonderful! Anomalies are out there!
Trust me, I wish my first relationship coming off my separation/divorce had panned out. It lasted 18 months (on and off). I finally pulled the plug when the toxicity of the relationship started to kill me. Literally. I contracted 3 viruses and my organs were shutting down. As soon as we broke up, I healed up again. I am an exceptionally healthy person (knock on wood) and was sicker during those months than my entire life.
I love hearing happy endings and thank you for sharing your story!
