We asked this couple:
How did you meet? Tell us your story.
It was at a summer camp. He was working there and I was visiting my sister who works there on staff. In the middle of the week one afternoon, I was sitting alone watching some kids playing basket ball, Phil sat next to me on the bench. It was our first conversation and we talked for FOUR HOURS! There was no awkwardness, no lull. He was engaging, smart and funny. It was so easy being comfortable with him, so easy to be myself. While talking we discovered we both had enrolled in the same college for the fall. We remained platonic, went our separate ways. I didn’t think anything would ever blossom from our encounter.
Two months later on our first day of college we ran into each other while enrolling for classes. We started hanging out as “just friends” every day, from the first day. We became inseparable. I didn’t feel myself falling in love, it just hit me one day that I didn’t want to ever spend a day without him. We’re best friends, each others other half, and happiest when we’re together. We dated for about a year and a half before we eloped.
What do you love most about each other?
Bit: What I love most about him: Hes my rock. He’s strong and steady, a natural leader. I admire him.
Phil: What I love most about her: She is sexy, beautiful, loving, funny, and supportive. She’s my dream wife!
What have you learned in your years of marriage?
When you truly love each other, there is no problem that can’t be fixed. We don’t believe in a 50/50 marriage, but rather a 100/100. When both husband and wife put each other first 100% of the time, everybody keeps winning.
