Married/Partner EF Members?

I was looking at Mrs. Doolittle's thread regarding a 4th dog today, and voila! - Nil asks whether Mrs. Doolittle and Snoopy are wife/husband, which they are! As I have been a member only since March, my knowledge is limited to having figured out that DB and MathNut are married, and that ClareJane and UTH are engaged.

Can anyone enlighten me as to any other "couple" EFers? Did any of them meet through this forum? Or would you advise me that it is more interesting to read separate postings from either party for a while until one or the other shares that info?

Don't know why it seems so interesting to me; I guess I just find it neat to read two different member's separate posts then learn they are actually a couple!

Re: Married/Partner EF Members?

It's funny you should say that, but I got the feeling today that PaddyG is the other half of someone on here ... but I can't remember who

(However, there is also LostInbroad and Island Girl)

There are, some did, and I would. I'm like you, it's more fun to guess and wonder and let the realization slowly dawn... sometimes after you've already met the person several times in real life, and suddenly they evince unexpected knowledge of EF and you're like, "wait, you're that [name redacted]?!"

At the other extreme I think some nosyperceptive people on here yes swissotter I'm looking at you realized that Mr. MathNut and I were a proper couple almost before we did ourselves. (And we thought we were being so exquisitely discreet! I'd make a terrible sleb, I would. )

Re: Married/Partner EF Members?

I think another female mod has a very active husband on here - or I got the wrong end of the stick. Figured mrs D and snoopy out a while ago but what what what???? MN abd DB? Well I never

There are a few other now not so active members who met on here and some are now 3

My other half only has a post count of about 15

Re: Married/Partner EF Members?

It would be tough, as my girlfriend's English vocabulary is limited to "bleach, I Love You, Shut Up, Rabbit, and Cow).

Well, we speak Italian together, so no problem (my mother taught her her "bleach" a couple years ago, I think it was her first English word, not sure if my mother can say "candeggina", though)

So I guess if I wanted to match you up with your other half, I would have to do it on "Italian Forum Switzerland," right?
