fully understand what marriage was about, but we are so grateful we made the decision.

2. When did you know you all  were meant for each other:
We had been friends for a long time and both of us can say we are exactly what we prayed for in a spouse.

3. The few things we would do differently in our years to come:
M
ake a priority to have a date night every month , put things aside and make time for each other.

4. The advice we would give to a single person:
Keep the faith because the right man or woman is out there. Also look to God to lead you to that person. Be patience
and allow god to get you prepared for marriage. Pray for your future spouse and they will come.
5. The greatest marriage advise we have received:
D
on’t go to bed angry, forgive one another, pray together and love is more than a feeling it's an action.

6. Most important attributes of a good spouse:

7. You got married very young – how did you both manage to grow as individuals yet not grow apart as a
couple?
Relying on God to grow us. Also encouraging one another daily and praying for each other.

8. The best memories we have in our marriage:
Just spending quality time together, relaxing and joking around, watching movies.

9. Does communicating get easier with time? How do you keep your patience:
We think the more you communicate and spend time talking things out it gets easier. We try and keep patient by
understanding where one another is coming from and relying on God to give the patients and keep us from speaking
hurtful things.

10. How did you cope when you had to be physically separated for long periods of time:
When we were apart we didn't do very well. It was very hard to cope without each other. We just want to be together.

11. At the end of bad relationship day, what is the most important thing to remind yourselves:
How much you love that person despite how you feel and things will get worked out.

12. What’s the one thing you have in common that transcends everything else:
The love we have for Jesus.

We are a Christian couple who have love  & trust for each other as we raise our children, and live the American dream
through ownership of a Home health Agency in Calumet City.

The Holy spirit; Not really.

The Holy spirit bore witness to it.

Is there anything you would do differently looking back over your marriage?
Not really.

Mr. Right or Mrs. Right is really out there?
Just keep believing & trusting God to help you find your own “Mr/Mrs Right”

God is in spiritual partnership with us in our marriage (“a three-pronged chord is not easily broken…”)

Loving, caring, faithful, forgiving, & responsible

We have very common/similar attributes

The verbal exchange of “I do” & the tying of the three pronged chords on our wedding day.
