Lauren (why her husband is different from the men from her past relationships): I never really had an a--hole guy in my life. In fact, they were the most amazing men on the planet. It was just that their personalities were as big as mine, if not bigger. So to meet somebody who was so stable and down-to-earth was very new. Even the idea of dating was new. In my 20s and 30s, people didn't date. You went out in large groups and eventually you went home together. But with Francis, there were actual dates where he would plan things and call to tell me what time he was picking me up. He wanted me to meet his family. It was so different and it took a little time to understand it.
