It's the question posed to every couple at some point in their relationship: "How did you guys meet?" When it comes to our parents and their relationship, we probably don't even think twice. Duh, they're our parents, always have been and always will be. Weren't they just born our parents? 

  • On October 17, writer Nicole Cliffe posed the question to the wide world of Twitter.

    "I'm interested in this bc I have recently discovered a huge number of people have never asked their parents how they met," she added in a replied tweet. 

    The tweets and stories that ensued are sweet enough to warm even the coldest heart.
