Why I love them: Equally-yoked. God-fearing. FUN.
Romero and Renee are just a "yes"! Everything about them deserves the #relationshipgoals hashtag. When I think of YBL couples who I personally look up to, these two definitely come to to mind. See for yourselves in their mini-interview below. Here is what the lovebirds had to say....
● What is your favorite part about being married?
"As a couple our favorite part about being married is coming home to your best friend every night. Having the opportunity to share everything with that person. Being vulnerable without fear because you know this person truly loves you for who you really are and not the perception of what people think you are. To love without the fear that you are being taken advantage of. It is an incredible feeling when shared by the right individuals. It’s the perfect combination of compromise and submission."
● What do you want to instill in your children about love and commitment?
"As the parents of 3 daughters this question is being answered and demonstrated daily. We stress to our girls that LOVE is constant and unwavering despite the fact that you may not feel like it for a moment in time. True love is love without limits and conditions. For true LOVE to stand the test of time you must find someone that you enjoy spending time with, share some of the similar interest and someone that will laugh with you in times of joy but will also cry with you in times of sorrow."
● What impact will you and your spouse make in the world?
"As educators and parents our first love has always been children, however we want the world to know that MARRIAGE WORKS!! It is not what you see on the television screen or even what you hear on the radio. MARRIAGE IS FUN!!! MARRIAGE is FREE!!! MARRIAGE is ORGANIC!!! MARRIAGE is….. the truest form of God’s Love. For He saw fit to bring you someone to share the rest of your life with. Someone who will always be by your side.
People often wonder how people stay married for 20, 30+ years it is because not only do they have the recipe for marriage but they use it! We want our marriage to be a living testimony of God’s unwavering love. Together we will not only make a difference in the lives of the students we service every year but we will break the cycle of broken marriages in our family by being the Living Example of a Successful, Healthy marriage."
