Molly and Chach Bursey on their wedding day, July 3, 1999

Molly Madden's new boyfriend wanted her to meet his friends, so he took her to a gathering. That's where she was introduced to her future husband.

The first time I saw my future spouse:

She says: “I thought he was just a quiet guy sitting in the corner by himself.”

He says: “I knew we were going to have something. I wasn’t sure what it was.”

My best marriage advice is:

She says: “Marriage should be easy. It should be a haven. Where your spouse is should be home; it should feel good to be there.”

He says: “Trust. And be trustworthy.”

On our wedding day:

She says: “I was a mess. I wish I had been more focused on the significance of the day than on the details of the event.”

He says: “I wasn’t nervous at all. I was really at peace with everything. Before that I hadn’t been nervous about getting married, just about the whole event.”
