From the Paper:

"Alice Munro's story, "How I Met My Husband" is told from the perspective of the narrator, Edie. Edie determines the style of the story by discussing the elements of her life from a young girl of fifteen, and as a woman. She recants tales of those that she has known, and of the man that she believed she deeply loved. Edie relates her life from the viewpoint of an innocent child that was raised in poverty, was uneducated, and saw life from a simplistic perspective. In this manner the story is, therefore, influenced by Edie's view of the world, and how she perceived the things, and people in it. This is evident as Edie discusses her former home in which the house was lit with oil lamps, and leaks were plugged with rags (Munro ). "
