How you support each other in your careers. We work long, crazy hours, and it’s important for both of us to know that where one is weak, the other is strong. We pick up the slack from wearing many hats. Being in business is hard. Being married is hard. Staying married and in love is even harder. Every day, we try to make sure we are on the same page and let God handle the rest.
Why they were chosen: The Tripletts have an incredible background and history, which they credit for their strong bond. Rufus Triplett, Jr. co-wrote and produced for the 80s musical act Ready for the World, and Jenny Triplett also had her hand in the industry as an owner of an entertainment company. As best-selling authors, the couple is sparking the much-needed conversation about marriage and providing tips needed to survive the foundation and institution of the family. The Tripletts are inspiring other marriages through their various ministries and website, RufusandJennyTriplett.com.
