Thanks for letting me share your love story!
Chris + Jaimie
How long have you been married?
3 years in March.
History of your marriage; how you met? got engaged?
We met FOREVER ago. We were sophomores in college who started out as friends, then realized we were acting more like a married couple than friends so we decided to start dating! We got engaged 4 years later. We were kayaking in the Susquehanna River & of course he talked me into wearing a go-pro camera on my head so he could get pictures of the scenery…little did I know he was actually going to record our engagement. He proposed on one knee, on a kayak & of course I said YES wearing a camera on my head!
What is your favorite thing about him/her?
My favorite thing about him is how easy going he is. I wish I could be as calm & laid back as he is. Even in the toughest situations he holds it together and tells me we will be okay (while I’m having an anxiety attack of course). He truly is my other half.
What is your most memorable moment together?
It would have to be when we had our son. After everyone left & it was just the three of us in the hospital room I never felt closer to anyone in my life. We became a little family that day & it was a moment I will always cherish.
What is your favorite thing to do together?
It has always been going on hikes and walks at local state parks. It used to be just the two of us then we started bringing the dog, & now we have our little one with us as well!
What is your biggest piece of advice for a man going into his marriage?
Never stop making her feel special. Even when she seems to be acting crazy & completely stressed out about everything (trust me this will happen) remind her how beautiful she is & that she never has to figure out this crazy life alone!
What is your biggest piece of advice for a woman going into her marriage?
Let the little things go, sometimes we get annoyed or upset when things aren’t a certain way. Just learn to have patience and let things go.
What do you think makes a marriage work?
I think communication is the key. That goes for both sides. There will be times when you want to bottle things up or you are upset or sad. The last thing you want to do is shut your spouse out. Be honest & let your spouse know what is going on, you never know they may be able to help you more than you know!
