'I'll never let him go again'.

Byline: By Wales on Sunday

When Julie Collins split from the father of her son, she believed she had lost her one true love forever. But after two years of soul-searching, the Cardiff couple were drawn back together. And, more in love than ever, Stephen Cotter, 29, and office worker Julie, 28, are now keen to show the world this time it's for keeps.

Julie said: 'My fiancA Stephen and I met 10 years ago. I was working in a Cardiff bar and he was a customer.

'Friends set us up and, although I was only 19 and he was 20, we were certain we would spend the rest of our lives together.'

A year later, the happy couple were blessed with baby Owain and, for five years, everything ran smoothly.

Then, Julie says, cracks in their relationship began to show.

'We had both become complacent with each other and started taking each other for granted. We had both become selfish,' she explained.

Eventually, the couple split and Stephen moved back to his parents' home.

But gradually they became friends again and when Julie went through a turbulent new relationship and lost her grandfather, Stephen was there to pick up the pieces.

Julie recalled: 'We would talk for hours... he would make me smile, laugh and even cry, in a happy way, and he made me realise things weren't so bad.'

Two months later they became engaged. Julie added: 'I would marry Stephen tomorrow just to prove how much I love him and to show I will never let him go again.'
