Steve is 15 years older than me and in many ways raised me as a wife since I was so young when we married (21 years old). He is so patient with me and I can say there has NEVER been what I'd call a "knock down drag out" fight between us. There have been very few nights where we go to bed angry. And our marriage is quite nearly a 10 out of 10, though it definitely hasn't come easy and it's not anything I can take credit for.
I would venture a guess that a lot of people (family and friends included) wondered if we'd make it. Well, nearly 17 years later and we are still going strong.
