  22. Happy Anniversary! What a thrilling testimony!

  23. Happy anniversary.

    My parent’s marriage didn’t work out so well. And they were married just after my mom turned 19. I was quite superstitious about that age. I thought if I could make it past the age of 19 without getting married I’d have a better chance at a successful one.

    I think if you two were the example I had to look at that instead of the one I had that superstition would have taken on an entirely different shape.

    You look really cute together.

  24. Hi Mary – it’s nice to meet you – thanks for stopping by the site. I also married at the ripe ol’ age of 19 and I’m 32 now and somehow we are still managing to make it work! Congrats on your anniversary! It’s nice to meet another “young couple”! 🙂

  26. I didn’t know you all were high school sweethearts! That is soooo perfect! 🙂 I told you you were a piece of Americana. I think I am going to have make a road trip one day to Idaho. (One loooong road trip – but imagine all we would see!) You all are seriously too cool. My son would love to meet all those kids and see life in Idaho.

  27. Similar story here: we met in May of my senior year (his junior), engaged by next spring, married at 19 & 18, 23 years ago. We’ve got 8 kids from 3 – 22, too!
