Glenn and Aureal celebrated their union on Sunday, May 22, 2016 with friends and family.


“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”



“What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life–to strength each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?”
– George Eliot

Mr. and Mrs. Mathis (28 years)


Meet Rocky & Karin...
I met Rocky 28 years & 3 months ago on a blind date in college (November 7, 1987).  We were going to college at SOSU. One of my friends was dating Rocky's best friend & set us up on a blind date. I tried to pay another one of my friends to go out with him in my place because he was a cowboy.....not my type! Lol! She wouldn't go so I did & less than 3 months later we got married! We called a pastor out of the phone book & got married at his house with just 4 of our friends there. 


*We married on January 29, 1988

Tell me a little about your relationship...


*Rocky truly listens to me. He is trustworthy, hardworking & respectful.  He is a true gentleman.


*Haha...Romance is sometimes difficult through the busyness of life (such as raising a family). We always enjoyed taking our boys everywhere.  Now that we are empty nesters, it's like starting over.  I would give the advice to make time for a monthly date night. We love Bed & Breakfasts, eating at restaurants from Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives, gardening & working around the farm.


*I think my favorite part of marriage is always having someone you can trust & share everything with every day.  

*I think everyone needs to go into marriage with the attitude that divorce is not an option and that it's not all about you.  You will work through whatever comes your way and not be self centered.  


*Keep Christ at the center of your marriage & pray through the difficult times.


* Just know that disagreements WILL happen.  I find it good to hold my tongue & not always say what I am thinking.  Words can be hurtful & it's better to calm down before talking sometimes. Don't go to bed mad! 


*Strengths: Marriage is a partnership....we both contribute.  We just do whatever needs to be done.  We both do laundry, cook, wash dishes, etc. We share a faith in Christ & worship together.


*Rocky says he loves me because I can put up with him! LOL! He also says I have a giving spirit  & always took care of him & our boys.  


*I love that Rocky shows me in little ways every day that he cares.  He makes a cup of coffee & brings it to me, stops at the Fried Pie store & gets my favorite pie, washes my car without me asking, gases up my car, buys groceries ( I hate going to Wal-Mart)...he pretty much spoils me.  LOL!

* I think Pre-Marriage counseling by a Christian counselor is a great idea.  They can talk you through lots of situations before they occur & give you the tools to handle them.  Be forgiving & don't hold grudges!  Be smart....don't put yourself in situations that could lead to mistrust in your marriage.  Discover hobbies or things you enjoy doing together.

Mr. and Mrs. Franks (19 years)

"It's my strength for holding on
Every minute that I have to be gone
I'll have everything I'll ever need
I'm carrying your love with me"

Greg and Kelly Franks

©      How did you meet?
We met on the internet when it wasn't popular in 1996, when there were chat rooms.  My sister brought home her computer from college and told me NOT to share ANY personal info with anyone.  He asked if there were any cute TX girls and I instant messaged him yes I was. We chatted on private message for 4 hrs and he was a hen pecker so I asked him if he wanted to call me.  He called and we talked until 6 am.  That was at Thanksgiving.  We kept talking and he bought me a plane ticket to come see him for New Years Eve.  I flew and he picked me up.  He put me in a hotel.  We were engaged 1 month later and married June 26, 1996.

©      What do you love about your husband?
He was hard working, VERY caring, and SO KIND!!!  I knew right away I would spend the rest of my life with Greg.

©      What are some things you enjoy doing together?
We go to movies and have a date night once a month.  We pray together every morning before we leave for work.  We do things as a family.  I LOVE to see him interact with our kids.

©      Kelly, what is your favorite part of marriage?
My favorite part of marriage is each stage we have been through.  I LOVE to spend time with Greg.  He is my soul mate!!

©      What is the most important aspect of a marriage?
COMMUNICATION!!!! You MUST tell how you are feeling about something.  If you don't, the person will NEVER know.  Do it in a kind way.

©     Life often throws many curveballs, and those that make it through those tough times stay together. How have you dealt with stressful times that arise?
We dealt with infertility for 10 years of our marriage.  It was the MOST difficult thing to deal with.  The problem was mine and I felt like SUCH a failure!! Having Greg reassure me and help me deal with it was AMAZING!!! We grew MUCH stronger in our faith.  We went to MANY Bible studies together during that time so we grew in our faith and with each other.

©      What are the strengths of your marriage?
Our faith

©     Greg, what do you love about Kelly
I love how she takes care of our children.

©     Kelly, what do you love about Greg?
I love how Greg cares for me! He definitely puts me on a pedestal! 

©      What advice would you give to newly married couples?
The advice we would give to young married couples is to follow the biblical example of marriage, leave your family and cleave to your spouse.  If you have children they do NOT come first.  First is The Lord-ALWAYS, then spouse, then children.  ALWAYS communicate!!
