Ok is not yes!

Did you marry someone you felt "ok" about at first? How did it work out?

This does sound like it's been asked before, but I'm not asking for advice for any current situation - because one doesn't exist.
I was thinking about a lot of experiences I've had that I thought were going to be just ok, but turned out great.
In the context of marriage, what did you do when you found someone you felt "ok" about? Did you go ahead and marry them? Did it work out well? Better than expected?
When I say "ok" I don't say it with regret or the absence of affection. Ok is not bad. Ok is good.
But "ok" is not "great". Ok is comfortable and fulfilling. It's not a "you complete me" sort of thing though. If "ok" was a grade, it would be a B+ with a chance for extra credit.
I would like to hear stories. Thanks!
