Carol: I had been divorced about 5 years and had been alternating between being desperate to find love again, and accepting of the fact that I was OK alone.

David: I had been married for 6 years to a woman who was a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses Organization, which I strongly disagreed with, and it was becoming painfully obvious that my marriage couldn't exist, being unevenly yoked. I had done everything in my power to make it work, but it couldn't go on the way it was. I came to MC to look for some Christian guidance and friendship. I saw Carol on here one night, and we began discussing unevenly yoked marriages. I found out she had also been through something similar, and she helped me to see why the Bible doesn't promote this in marriage. We became good friends as I went through a painful divorce and an emotionally depressing time in my life. Eventually after the divorce we met, became closer, and began dating long distance (350 miles). We exchanged a lot of e-mails and phone conversations as we got to know each other better. We realized how much we had in common, and our religious beliefs were very much alike, after visiting each others churches a few times. We agreed after awhile that our relationship was getting closer, and we didn't want to live separate lives any longer. We became engaged at Christmas. We both agreed that the course was set for the rest of our lives. Then on April 24, 2010 we made it official and became man and wife. We both agree that this time it's for life!

Carol: After living all my life in a small town in Virginia, I've moved 350 miles away to my husband's hometown in Ohio. I'm very happy here, and we're now leading a God-directed life together.
