Brandon, 38 & MICHELlE, 37 — married
How long have you been together?
We’ve been married for eight and a half years and together for 16.
How did the two of you meet?
Through my roommate.
What advice do you have for other couples about sustaining a long term relationship?
Honesty is definitely crucial. We have this thing where we say, “do you promise?” and if he promises I know he’s being honest and truthful. We use that in our relationship. When we say, “do you promise?” and we trust each other’s word.
I’ve always been brutally honest with her. With the girl I dated before Michelle I felt like I was holding back and I knew I wasn’t 100% myself with her. After we broke up I decided I was going to go all in next time and I’ve been brutally honest with her since.
