About Us: Necole + Mr Kell, Married 11 Years.

14 August 2012

The Davester and I have the seven year itch. That’s right. SEVEN years of wedded bliss. {Total lie, marriage is hard work, yo.} While we’re celebrating our anniversary this week, I’ve asked some of my favorite bloggers and their husbands to share some words on marriage.

Necole is the mastermind behind Seriously Sassy Mama.  And that she is.  She blogs about life, motherhood of three daughters, fashion, knitting, books, and whatever strikes her fancy. 


How many years have you been a couple & who liked whom first?

We have been a couple for 21 years.  We are high school sweethearts who met running track.  Mr. Kell remembers a friend telling him that I liked him.  We have been together ever since.

What has being married taught you?

Mr. Kell -  "Life is not about how many punches you can throw, it is about how many you can take and keep moving forward"  (Mr. Kell cannot go through a day without quoting Rocky.)  (I am going to say that he thinks marriage is work, and that you constantly have to work to make it good.)

Necole -  That men and women are truly different creatures, and that we should appreciate our differences, even if we do not like them.

What is the most fun thing the two of you have ever done together?

We both agree that we had an absolute blast at our wedding reception.  After 11 years of marriage, people still talk about it.

How do you resolve issues?  Do you ever go to bed angry?

I can answer this without Mr. Kell.  We are both passionate people and we argue.  I will not lie, and will say that we do yell.  I personally do not like to lose an argument.  In 11 years, we have most certainly gone to bed angry.

What is the secret to a happy marriage?

Mr. Kell - you have to truly like one another.  Love is not enough.

Necole - Be kind and supportive.  Do not ever be afraid to tell them that they are wrong or are making a bad decision.  You have to look out for each other.  You have to be a team.

I love the idea that we can be kind and supportive, but also be able to tell our partner they are making a bad decision. That is a key to a strong marriage. Great stuff!
