Mr. and Mrs. Lane (18 years)
We keep the romance alive by refusing to pressure each other; we respect and accept each other as we are. You can't change someone, so why try! We enjoy spending time together, listening to music, and taking trips together.
Strengths of our marriage: We put each other first. Everyone else is second (except in an emergency). We try to have respect for what each other like and deal with it.
What I love about my wife is she is a sweet and caring person. She tries to meet my needs and wants.
I love my husband's vast knowledge of trivia and his musical ability. He is kind and super sweet to me! I love that he shows my family the respect they are due.
Our advice for newlyweds: • RESPECT each other • Put each other first • Don't involve others in your marriage • Be kind to each other and treat them the way you want to be treated • Stay out of your in-laws’ squabbles and show them respect • Say something nice to each other, and don't continually complain and find fault.
