Good morning beautiful people!! I’m excited to feature my first Then Comes Marriage couple. Meet Wendy and Girard Derilus who met and fell in love in high school and have been married for 17 years. They also have a son who recently started college. I did a quick Q & A with them to take a peak inside their marriage.
Chic Brown Bride: How did you two meet?
Wendy: He was a Music D.J and I was a groupie. Lol! We’ve known each other since High School and our families knew each other.
Chic Brown Bride: Was it love at first site?
Wendy: Yes, had a childhood crush on him. Girard: Yes, but hesitated because she was younger.
Chic Brown Bride: Is marriage what you thought it would be?
Wendy: Yes. We’re a team. Girard: Yes, as long as my wife is happy, I’m happy.
Chic Brown Bride: What advice would you give to newly marred couples?
Wendy: Just be yourself, communicate and date. I tell my husband I love him every day. Girard: Communicate and listen.
Chic Brown Bride: What do you do as a couple for fun?
Wendy: We both love music and enjoy doing fun things.
Although short and sweet they said some pretty powerful things. Communication, listening and I love how Girard simply says, “As long as my wife is happy, I’m happy.” Happy wife, happy life..right? It’s great to see that ‘young’ love can continue to be love as the years go on but if you have to be committed to it.
Do you have any advice to add? I welcome your thoughts below! Also, if you or someone you know would be a good fit for this feature please get in touch with me!
