v What did you see in Dwight that made you want to marry him?

He is caring and willing to put my needs before his. He is a really good family man!

v What were your goals for your marriage when you were engaged?

We were older when we got married so we both knew what we wanted and needed. We were engaged for six months and married within a year. We brought our home the next year and eleven years later we are still living in bliss!
 
v Johnee, what do you love about Dwight?

He had a very kind spirit about him.

v How do you keep the romance going?

Know that romance take place more than in the bedroom Don't get caught up in the physical act…if the ability to perform the act change, you’re left with nothing.

v What is your favorite part of marriage?

 Having someone to depend on, to talk to and having someone who makes you feel safe.

v What is the most important aspect in a marriage to make it successful?

Success comes in marriage when you learn how to listen more than you talk, give more than you receive.

v How do you get through the tough times?

We turn to our faith and pray together.

v New couples need to understand that there will be times of disagreement and it is very important in knowing how to react. With that in mind, how do you handle disagreement and problems?

Walk away when you can't agree and revisit it later when all is calm. Never go to bed angry!

v Johnee, what is the most important thing for a wife to know?

Your husband is supposed to be the head; so let him think he's running everything!!! J


v What do you see as the strengths of your marriage?

Respect for each other’s feelings. Although we are now one-we still have individual thoughts.

v Any words of wisdom for the newly engaged couples that will be reading your story?  

Live and love one day at a time. Don't put extreme expectations on each other because if you reach for the stars and fall among the clouds it’s still a victory!

May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter.
