Mr. and Mrs. Mathis (28 years)
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.
*Rocky truly listens to me. He is trustworthy, hardworking & respectful. He is a true gentleman.
*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.
