We asked:

How did you two meet? Tell us your story.

We met when John had an appointment at the Interior Design office where I was working. I was asked to help him select and order some furniture. We went for dinner and a drink after.

Whats the secret to a long lasting marriage?

-Being good friends
-Taking time to do things together
-Letting things go
-Mutual respect
-Commitment (divorce is not an option)
-Be grateful…always. Even when times are tough. If you can remember the good things about your spouse and what brought you together, you will have a happier marriage.

What is your favorite memory together?

Our entire trip to Italy that I surprised John with for his 50th birthday…(I loved that he didn’t take his computer) We explored city after city and navigated the streets of Rome, Florence and Milan successfully as a team with John driving and me reading the map. No GPS in the old days!

What do you love most about each other?

John: What I love most about Wendy…her thoughtfulness and that she is considerate.

Wendy: What I love most about John…his tender heart and generosity.

This is the Bible verse I like most for marriage…

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Phillipians 4:8
