Real Couple Wednesday (Christine and Michael Rice)
The time has come again for Real Couple Wednesday. I interviewed Christine Rice. She is a fellow writer and was willing to share with us. She provided a glimpse into her life for everyone to see that you are not alone in the same struggles. I am very grateful that Christine decided to share with us.
Tell me about yourself (age, marital status).
I'm a 30-year-old married female.
How long have you been married?
How did he propose?
He got down on one knee in our apartment and sweetly asked me if I would marry him.
Tell me about your wedding.
It was a small wedding of only about 10 people (just immediate family). The wedding and reception was held at my parents' house--the house I grew up in. The ceremony was performed in the front yard and it was the most beautiful early-July afternoon. It was truly the best day of my life.
What do you fight about the most?
Differences in perception. We're both stubborn and we each think we are always right.
Do you have a lot in common?
Yes. We went through similar situations before we met. However, we also have clear differences, and that makes life interesting.
What has been the hardest part of your marriage? The easiest?
Dealing with finances and disagreements is hard. However, our love for each other always resolves our arguments. The easiest has been our mutual feelings of emotional attachment and compatibility, which has made our marriage long lasting.
How many serious relationships were you in before?
Three. But this is the longest and most loving relationship I've had.
