Bob’s Story

While our families were as different as night and day, Lori and I both grew up in relatively healthy conservative evangelical Christian families. We met in church and became close friends long before we ever dated. When we married we went through all the traditional “before you say I do” preparations. We thought we were the perfect couple, and most who knew us agreed.

Lori’s Story

Bob and I married young (or so we were told) and I blissfully walked through our short honeymoon phase. We were what everyone considered to be a happy couple. I felt carefree. I felt like a grown-up. After being raised in a conservative home, wherein as a 22 year old engaged woman, I had a curfew…of 11:30, I welcomed my newly acquired freedom.
