Wife Spotlights share their love story & love lessons.
We are Jason and Sanpri Porter. We met freshmen year of college in 1999 at Georgia Southern University. On November 15 we will celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary. During our union we have created 3 beautiful kids, David, Thaddeus, and Nadiyah. We currently reside in Monroe, NC, right outside Charlotte, and we've been in the area for 16 years.
My wife wisdom: Go with the flow! If the current changes paths ride the wave fearlessly together. Over the last 22 years together, 16 married almost, our relationship has had its fair share of ups and downs...we have lost many friends and family members, faced having a sick child, miscarriage, financial losses. But we have learned that we are resourceful and we do what is necessary to bounce back. I have suffered from anxiety most of my life and my husband calms me, helps me to be more rational about things. I think that I have helped him see things from an emotional perspective and not purely objective...because sometimes feelings are more important. We are truly the "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade couple" We once thought we were total opposites, but we just compliment each other.
I enjoy the First Wives' Club. The topics are simply structured yet introspective. It feels like a safe space. I enjoy being able to open up about tough subjects. Thank you Denise for this platform.
