Demetrice and Alvin’s Story:

It was raining one Tuesday night and Alvin had just dropped me off at home from dinner. Before I knew it, I headed back out the door. This was crazy; after all, he was just my friend. I decided to walk to his house in the rain a few blocks away and saw a figure approaching me. I was a little nervous until I realized it was him, walking to my house to see me. It was on this dreary night, standing under a street lamp, that I realized I loved this man and he loved me. We came towards one another and his eyes told me what his voice could not. He picked me up and twirled me around like in a scene from a movie. After nineteen years of marriage, four children, and a foreclosure later, we love each other more and are committed to an everlasting bond.
