Game Of Words With Friends Leads To Marriage For Chicago Couple

For some of us, the best we can hope to get out of playing Words With Friends is a respectable score. Megan Lawless and Jasper Jasperse, however, fared just a bit better.

The two were complete strangers before Thanksgiving in 2009 when Lawless, who lives in Chicago, decided to seek a random opponent in Words With Friends, the digital Scrabble app for smartphones that allows you to play with friends or strangers. Her random opponent turned out to be her future husband, as she was paired with Jasperse, who lived in the Netherlands at the time.
