My dear and wonderful wife.
We've known each other for about 31 years. It was her Mom and Dad who started Comic Book World, the company we both work for and my supply depot for all things geek, since I was 11 years old.
We didn't start dating until I was 25, but aside from her brilliance and beauty, her deep understanding for the hobby I love has been essential to all that I've manage to achieve.
While she's not much of a gamer these days, she's played her fair share and never balked about letting any of our kids play. Her presence, in fact, has allowed it to be a true family affair.
And while she doesn't share as deep a connection to gaming as I do, she understands the world we work in and has only stepped in when I was getting more negatives out of my hobby than positives.
Its truly amazing, when you spend your days with someone who knows you better than you know yourself. It inspires you to be brave and adventurous, I know she has done that for me.
