About Us: Zakary* + Jeffery, Married 5 Years.

17 August 2012

*His name is Jeffery and my name is Zakary. When we sent marriage announcements, some of his extended family thought I was a man (I'm not).

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.

ZDub.  True story… once Dave and I were at a party and from across the room I hear Dave’s friend talking about Raising Colorado.  Why?  Because Zakary {yes, she’s got a man’s name, but so does Tate} is hilarious, she also has the awesomest hair on the planet.  Go read this, this, this, and very much especially this.  Or say fuck it and just trust that you need to add her to your reader.  Your days will be brighter.


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

We have been a couple for almost ten years. I think we liked each other equally, Jeff would come into the bar where I worked by himself almost every night I worked. My coworker actually is the one that gave Jeff my phone number. Luckily he wasn't a total weirdo.

What has being married taught you?

Being married has taught us about compromise. I know I'm not very good at it, but I think I'm getting better.

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

I think every thing we do together is fun, we are funaholics.

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

To be honest, most of our issues are pretty stupid and by the time we go to bed, we forget what they were. Fighting sucks, we try not to do that.

What is the secret to a happy marriage?

Man, I don't think it's a big secret. Find the one person that brings out the best in you and can tolerate you and enjoy the ride. Life is so much better with love.

They sure are cute. I just wish they had Asian-er babies (side eye to Troy).

Yep, even reading about her on another site is awesome. Someday I am totally going to stalk Zakary in the non-boiling bunny way and buy her a beer!
