Mr. and Mrs. Tucker (30 years)

James and Julia Tucker met in college at Oklahoma State University through mutual friends. Every time Julia called James, his roommate would read portions from the book entitled "Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex But Was Afraid to Ask". LOL!! James was very shy. Julia was not. They went on their first date in September and shared their first kiss on Valentine's Day. Julia was his first girlfriend and James is her last love.
*James and Julia married on August 3, 1985*
