This story was fun! I got to get the answers from Carlins Aunt & Uncle! Another couple that I have the pleasure of knowing & now get to call family of my own! It was fun to sit with them & get the answers to these questions & it turned into a family album session! I loved it. Just learning more & watching the two of them talk about their stories & laugh, this was definitely a fun one! I’m glad they let me share their answers on the blog!
Rick + Peggy
How long have you been married?
History of your marriage; how you met? Became engaged?
He worked at my office & was installing a phone system. Before he left I gave him my number. I found out he was single. I didn’t hear from him for two weeks. He was doing things around his house because his mom was coming to visit him. Then he called. & the rest is history.
We were driving to Pittsburgh & I never expected to get married. We were going to meet my brother. He asked me what I thought about getting married & I said yeah.

What is your most memorable moment together?
Rick – Deciding to build our home together.
Peggy – Going to his class reunion & I told his classmate all of my female problems because he was a gynecologist.
What is your favorite thing to do together?
Rick – Go on vacations.
Peggy – I just like to be with him & doing anything. I really just love to be with him.
What is your biggest piece of advice for a man going into his marriage?

Peggy – Communication is huge for both of you. Also, having respect for one another.
