Here’s our Success Story:
Last week, six months after our marriage, Mark and I sat down to reread our early JDate emails. It brought back all the anxiety, uncertainty and excitement we experienced as we embarked on our new relationship. Both of us were battle-weary, having ended long-term marriages, and our lives were complicated – young adult children, older parents and demanding jobs. What a surprise to meet someone with whom to share these experiences and how wonderful to see how this relationship continues to deepen and grow.
Fast forward, five years after we first met on JDate, we were married in our backyard with all five children, our extended family and friends in attendance. Our honeymoon was spent hiking the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu, Peru — a trip neither of us would have taken before. Life continues to be challenging, but we relish the opportunity to plan the next half-century of our lives together.
