I'd like to ask about the meaning of "get together" in the following context:
We have been married for more than fifteen years and were together for nearly ten years before that. He has three children, who were young when we first got together. The two oldest lived with us. Our relationship had a lot of challenges in the first fifteen years. For me, it was a constant huge test with the children and with him. It is still a struggle with him at times.
Does "get together" mean simply "meet" or does it mean to begin relationship with somebody?
