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.

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.
