Partly as 'proof' that they were meant to begin this couple-journey, and also because in each retelling they go back to those first falling-in-love feelings and rekindle the passion. The theory is based on a hunch, which itself is based on nothing more than the author's observations of watching couples as they talk. Michele then tests her theory out on a neuroscientist and a psychologist, and by the end of the book has some useful things to say not only about how great love starts, but how it stays great.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Stand-up comedian Michele A'Court rekindles the passion, with a brilliant collection of 'How We Met' stories. How We Met is based on a collection of 'How We Met' stories - those lovely stories couples love to tell (and we all love to hear) about how they got together. The author's theory: that these stories of how couples meet - the romantic, absurd, serendipitous, convoluted, scandalous, breath-taking moments of connection - help to weave their lives together. Partly as 'proof' that they were meant to begin this couple-journey, and also because in each retelling they go back to those first falling-in-love feelings and rekindle the passion.The theory is based on a hunch, which itself is based on nothingmore than the author's observations of watching couples as they talk. Michele then tests her thesis out on a neuroscientist and a psychologist, and by the end of the book, has some useful things to say not only about how great love starts,but how it stays great.
