7 “I Do” Qualities in a Man

Because we run a large marriage and parenting site and we produce movies on marriage, people want to know our story. They want to know how we met and when did we know that we had “the one.” Of course, our answers are different, as we’ve had different journeys that led us to each other. Lamar and I were engaged after dating for 11 months. He planned a very romantic proposal for me. But what made me so sure? My last relationship was not good ( to put it mildly.) So how could I trust my judgement now? How could I let my wall down and trust Lamar? Why was I so confident that I was making that right decision with Lamar?
