We Did & We Would Again!

It was 25 years ago that we started our life together as husband and wife. Even back then we knew we had something special but could never have imagined just how blessed we were to have found one another. 

We had both gone through some tough relationships, Jerry had a marriage that was quite toxic and ended in a messy divorce and even though I had never been married, there were plenty of volatile relationships that continued to let us both down. But, we never gave up hope that someday we would find the one.


We were friends for a few years before we decided to take our relationship down a different road, and from that first date in June 1996 we have been inseparable. We were both about to turn 40 so we knew we were meant to spend the rest of our lives together so within 6 months we married.


Through the years there have been some rough times, some lean times and some downright ugly times but we knew that our love would endure it all and it has and became even stronger. On the other side of it we had some absolutely amazing times with so much richness and beauty and some of the deepest love either of us has ever felt. Our friendship continues to get us through and our passionate love keeps us strong. 


Being married to your best friend is the best thing ever. Knowing that we always have one another’s backs and nothing or nobody could ever take that away. Always looking out for one another’s best interests as well as our own.


Let’s not forget the laughter, not just at each other but also laughing at ourselves and not taking everything so seriously. Being vulnerable with one another, knowing we have each other’s hearts in our hands and never crushing it.


I’m not sure if this is the best recipe for a great marriage, all I do know is it works for us. We both woke up this morning smiling at one another and celebrating our 25 years together, listening to our wedding song and seeing the love in each other’s eyes that is even stronger than it was then, knowing that the love will continue to get stronger every moment.
