Anyone who is married and has been married for any length of time, knows it takes work, dedication and a lot of times, creativity to keep that love going and growing. This is why I love these couple spotlights because there are so many different things to learn and incorporate into my own marriage (and I’m sure, yours too), as one size does not fit all.
Meet Stephon & Pamela King, who are going on 15 years of marriage this September. They are a blended family (both with kids from previous relationships) with four kids: daughter (23), son (21), daughter (20), daughter (16), as well as one godson (7), a niece(15) and a grandbaby (18months), whom they also consider their children. They are passionate about teaching others how to create a strong marriage by motivating people all over to still date their spouse.
How did you meet and when did you know you wanted to spend the rest of your lives together?
Pamela:We meet in Atlanta June 13, 1997. I was attempting to park my car and the hubby was the security guard who threatened to tow my car. Well as they say….the rest is history.
I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him when he left to attend Orange Crush in 1998. I missed him so much & I knew I did not want him attending another one of those events that would allow some other girl to grin in his face.
Stephon: I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her, when she showed me that she loved me if I had “stuff” or I didn’t. She stuck with me through my bad times in 1997 and was right there to see me through it.
