Man fulfils his pre-school pledge of marrying his best friend (Photos)

Matt Grodsky and Laura Scheel are couples who met in Preschool but were separated upon entering Elementary School for the next seven years. Matt recounts how it all started, the separation and how he finally fulfilled his preschool pledge of marrying her.

“Laura and I met in preschool. One of my very first memories is of being
3 years old and standing up in front of my pre-school class, declaring
that I would marry her someday.

As kids, Laura taught me how to ride the swings, draw rolling hills, and
the ‘right way’ to properly eat string cheese. We have fond memories of
playing hide-and-go-seek, chasing after each other on the playground,
and mischievously staying up during nap time. I was enamored with Laura
as a child, and I still am to this day

Eventually, we lost touch upon entering our Elementary School days and
for the next seven years, our family’s annual Christmas cards was the
only way we ever saw each other’s faces. 

It wasn’t until High School that we reconnected by happenstance through a mutual friend. Within two weeks,
we decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend. We continued to date through
out all of High School, even though we went to different schools. 

We even stuck together long-distance while attending colleges in
different states. We remained a resilient couple until May 23rd, 2015
when I decided to stay true to my preschool pledge and make Laura my
wife. I proposed to her at the place it all began… our preschool
classroom.”
