Millie & Richard
“In order to get through the challenges, we have learned that we can’t take marriage lightly. We have to really truly be in love and feel like we can’t even live without that other person by our side. It won’t work unless we truly love each other and are committed to each other.”
Siggi & Martellus
“Having kids will definitely help you appreciate the little things in life as well as work harder to be the best version of yourself. My whole goal is to be the man that I would want my daughter to marry. Whether it’s as a father or the way I treat her mom. I want her to see how much fun you can have in a relationship. I want her to grow up in an environment where we have breakfast for dinner or dessert before dinner.”
Jen & Ryan
“Marriage is hard but really good. We have learned that it is important to be creative with how things can look. It is not always black or white. We are really good at seeing other ways to do things that are not expected or normal. It has given us opportunities to grow in different ways. We have fun outside of the norm.”
