In recognition of our10-year anniversary, Marriage Partnership profiled four couples who were celebrating their tin/aluminum anniversaries. This time around, MP tracked down those couples to find out how their marriages have developed over the last decade. We were pleased to discover that all four couples are still married, and we're certain that their commitment to each other and to God will once again serve as an inspiration and encouragement to our readers.
The Honeymooners Give BackTim and Tiffany Thompson stay close by serving together.
Ten years ago MP dubbed Tim and Tiffany Thompson "The Honeymooners" because they were committed to keeping each other first. How did they best do that? By going on trips together every 18 months. It's a way for them to "keep that 'newlywed-ness,'" says Tiffany.
After 20 years of marriage, they're still committed to couple getaways, although these days some of their trips would never be mistaken for a honeymoon. Whereas 10 years ago they focused only on newlywed-ness, now they focus on "other-ness" by spending their time together on mission trips.
"We still want to invest in our marriage and spend that time together, but serving together is also a way that we get closer," says Tiffany.1
