Wife Spotlights share their love story & love lessons.
Richie and I met about ten years ago at a family gathering. He is one of my brother's really good friends so he was always at our family gatherings. Not really looking for a relationship, neither one us even saw a friendship brewing.
It wasn’t until May of 2016 that we actually noticed one another. I was still healing from a prior divorce so our attraction was put on hold as I didn’t want to hurt him as I was still trying to heal. Two years later in May of 2018 at another family event, our attraction was evident and we decided to go on ONE date. Well needless to say that we are still on that date and now enjoying life together! We exchanged our marriage vows privately on October 23, 2018 and publicly with our family and friends on June 1,2019. So now we celebrate both dates. We currently reside in Gastonia, NC as we continue to enjoy life together.
My wife wisdom: "Be in a perfect love triangle where God is the point at the top and you are both the points on each sides". You both should always know, understand and respect the importance of your roles in your marriage and know that you both are accountable for how your marriage turns out. Also, know that only God can fix what He’s put together, so don’t go into or be in your marriage trying to fix the other person.
I really enjoy being a part of the First Wives Club!!!! It’s real life questions, advice, guidance and TRANSPARENCY!!! It’s a sisterhood that want to see you win in your marriage. It gives you support and accountability. My biggest takeaway to date is realizing that I am the his “GOOD THING” and YES my husband chose right when he chose me! The women who participate are really helping!!!
