On the surface we are quite different, but at our core we have the same core beliefs: we believe in God’s love, we believe that this is a marriage for our lifetime, we make critical decisions together, we don’t let outside parties determine our future, we keep communicating since we aren’t mind-readers. Truth is that Hugh is the dreamer, visionary, of our relationship. He is creative, an amazing dad, chef, baker, and athlete. He is generous and unselfish. No matter the situation, he can always find ways to show his love. He is incredibly resilient, he is my trusted advisor and my rock.

My advice new couples is to remember that nobody can be everything, except God. This doesn’t mean you settle, but it does mean you prioritize what values and behaviours your lifetime partner must have. These are then your priorities for finding and keeping the one.
