SO WHAT’S MARRIAGE REALLY LIKE? WE ASKED JON FREELS AND JD DOTSON.
Married for 2 years

Jon and I met when my friend dated his friend for a minute and we both crashed their second date. Those two didn’t have a third and we are going on 17 years.
We both knew right away. Jon says as soon as he laid eyes on me he knew, and that’s the same for me. When it’s right, you just know.
Our marriage works because we really like being together, we enjoy each other’s company, we play to each other’s strengths and support each other.
Getting ready to be married can be overwhelming. Don’t stress over it. Enjoy yourself and your soon-to-be spouse. I tried to make it a point to remember and slow down time and savor every second, but it still goes by so quick. –JD Dotson
