Will the Story Matter in 2015?


I am lucky to meet new couples everyday.  Lately the “how did you guys meet?” question seems taboo.  It’s as if even by my asking I have encroached upon something too personal.

In past generations, stories of summer camp, eleventh grade English class or the “that’s my Wife” declaration at the bar have all but faded.

Contemporaries who have stories like these are forthcoming with them.

By and large, these tales are unique.  They are relics from a bygone era.  Yet people are meeting, marrying, and starting families together.  So I pose the question, does the story even matter?

Are people turning away modern dating tools because the story of how they met will be less poetic?  I sure hope not.

As always, I would love to hear your thoughts.
