    I sang Tonight I met the Boy I'm going to marry, the night I met my husband of 52 years that was 53 years ago. I just knew the second he asked me to dance!

    That's what I said the first time my husband kissed me. I knew he was going to be my husband and we're going 33 years strong and still in love.

    Recalls better days when girls actually WANTED to get married after high
    school (and sometimes even earlier)...and saw to it that they were worth marrying!
    Feminism has turned women into s**t; maybe not ALL women, but FAR too many!
    I don't know if our modern girls even know what this song means, or would
    know what to do even if they did. Modern women STINK!
    Women have changed a lot in the past century or so. Change back...PLEASE!

      dkmeller so true feminism today is taking away my femininity. And it really is sad when a girl wants to get married early they are looked at and judged poorly

    Darlene probably recorded more songs than any other singer of this generation. She is the "studio" voice used by many many female singers and groups. And, even today she does not get the credit or the royalties because they put the name of the singer or group on these songs. Yet, it is not the singer, or the group, on the recorded version. Darlene was always asked to "stand in" as lead vocalist for the recording session because she can sing most anything perfectly. She saved them millions and made hundreds of millions for the recording companies and yet got no credit or payment.

    Love that song and Darlene's voice. In the 60's, there were other good groups singing that type of music. My favorite was, The Shirelles, but there were also The Chantels, Ronnettes and the Crystals and Mary Wells. I think the 60's had the best music; there was so much to choose from; folk, pop, R&B, motown, country, and some great instrumentals, such as Stranger on the Shore with Acker Bilk.

    @TonyPowers22 Oh God bless you for these wonderful words!! I absolutely LOVE this song and the words...and I finally met someone that fit the words. I'm telling you, if you wonder how much someone means to you, let this song play and if it melts you (the way that it melts me now)...then I think you may be on to something lol. Thanks again and you've written a song that will be played at many weddings to come...great work!!

    I love all the comments. Darlene should have been the big star. The only problem I have with this song is that the sax sound in the middle is just a little to slow. Up tempo just a hair and it would have been perfect.
