Marguerite and Mark
Marguerite and Mark met on an online dating service in May 2009 and instantly clicked. So many common interests including music, cooking, history, baseball etc that they really fell hard for each other. Mark lived in Missouri and was and still is an Archivist at an HBCU. Marguerite was a restaurant manager/caterer from Mississippi. They met in person in Tennessee in August 2009 and spent the next two weeks together. Labor Day weekend, Mark was down in Mississippi, proposing. Marguerite said yes and they were married in 2009 and live in Missouri. A whirlwind romance? Perhaps, but they knew it was right.
"We never considered color to be an obstacle in our relationship, just another fact of life. Our families have been nothing but supportive and wish us only happiness. When we spend time together, laughter permeates the air as we are constantly cracking ourselves up. Although we are firmly planted in the "middle age" demographic, our love is truly young at heart and we are blessed to have found each other."
