I would like to introduce to you Mr. & Mrs. Tracy Jenkins. I met Tracy when we were both stationed overseas in the military in 1992, so it is with great pleasure that the “Jenkins” are the FIRST couple that I highlight in the “Decades of Love” campaign
Married: 07.07.2000 (21 years)
State of Residence: Georgia
Q: If you could choose something that represents or symbolizes your relationship, what would that be? Having a “Open-End Heart”
Q: What is your definition of LOVE as it relates to your marriage? There’s not just one thing. But when someone else is willing to put self aside to make sure their significant other s happy, that’s love.
Q: What makes your LOVE last after all of these years? Communication and Compromise is the key
Q: If you were asked to counsel a newly married or recently engaged couple, what (3) things would you express to them (in making LOVE last)? (1) Communication, talk to each other often (2) Set time aside for each other, don’t get too busy with other things (3) Compromise on things when possible
Q: Do you AGREE or DISAGREE with the following statement “After a period of time in every marriage, the NEW LOVE feeling fades” (Please explain your answer) Disagree. If it fades, you’ve stopped paying attention to your mate. I find new things to love about my husband all of the time. That “new” information causes me to fall in love with him again and again and again.
Tracy & Stephanie Jenkins (Established 2000) ONE Decade of Marriage
