30 Years!!!

Engagement photo 1980

My Mom and Dad recently celebrated their 30th anniversary.

They are my examples of what a godly marriage is supposed to be like.

When my parents went to a pastor to see if he would do the wedding service he said no, because they had 3 strikes against them:
1.They were too young in his eyes. She was 18 and he was 22.
2.They were raised in different religions, he was raised catholic, and she protestant.
3.Both of their parents were divorced.

They eventually found someone else to marry them. When my parents decided to get married they decided that they would NOT divorce. They have been faithful to that decision since the day they became husband and wife!

“For this reason a man shall leave his Father and his Mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.” Genesis 2:24
