Two Favorite TV Couples

I love these two together.  I like them individually and together I think 
they are the image of the ideal couple.  It's so obvious that they are so
happy and still so in love.


Look at how adorable they are.  The met when Ina was just 15 and married
on December 22, 1968.  Forty eight years of marriage!   Such great things
were waiting in the wings for them on that day.


I found this pair of photos of them as little ones.  Such cuties.

They are accomplished on their own.  Ina once worked at the White House
and has an MBA.  Her love of cooking ruled her heart and the rest is history.

Jeffrey has served three United States Presidents, Nixon, Ford and Carter, in
a variety of foreign policy and economic positions.  He earned a BA from
Dartmouth, an MA and PhD from John Hopkins School of Advanced
International Studies.  He is currently Dean Emeritus at the Yale
School of Management.


But together, they are a loving and happy couple.  The perfect
example of what marriage is meant to be.


Chip and Joanna Gaines.  Like Ina and Jeffrey, it's pretty obvious that
these two are not acting to be happily married ~ they are.   You just
can't help enjoy their teasing and affection for each other and their
precious family.


And what cute kids!!!

Chip and Joanna are both Baylor grads.  Here is the link to a great
article about them in Baylor Magazine.  They are a great example of
a couple who are committed to one another, to family and to the
community too.

As we approach the wedding season, I think it's important for young
couples of today to realize that marriage is much more than just the
fancy wedding and the gifts.  It's a life long commitment to support
one another.  To be strong and focused on individual goals while
championing their lives together too.

I love watching these two happy couples!

By the way ~ I have a new post up on my other blog:

  1. You picked two great couples to recognize and I like the differences in their ages. Smart advice!

  2. Those are two inspiring couples. I didn'the know own that Inari was on TV. I will have to investigate!

  3. I enjoy watching Ina and her husband on their many shows together. Ina was a beautiful bride. Chip and Joanna are such a cute couple and their children are precious.
    I binge watch the "Fixer Upper" show.
    I enjoy your blog and am fascinated with your miniatures. My late husband bought our daughter a doll house and I think we had more fun with it than she did.
    Have a marvelous weekend.

  4. I love Ina, and love when she has her husband Jeffery on. I think they are a great couple too. She was so you g to marry himor did I read wrong. But at any rate they have lasted forever. I think marriage is like you said much more then gifts etc. I have a Aunt & Uncle who I have much respect for. They oartly raised me, In facet I love them to death more than my real parents. They have been together I believe 60 years. I always wished to find that husband. But never could so I remain single for the last almost eight years. Nice post thank you for the great post. With love Janice

  5. This is a lovely post, Susan...and a wonderful thing to admire and celebrate!

  6. I agree and I agree...I LUV these two favorites....!!! Love this Susan!!! Hi Bentley!!!

  7. I love these 2 couples too. And Joe and I have been married for 48 years as well!!!

  8. I agree with you about couples should be making a lifelong commitment and supporting each others individual goals while their goals as a couple at the same time. My daughter and her fiance are getting married in August. I'm going to send her a link to your post today. I have to admit that I absolutely love Chip and Joanna, but I had no idea who the other couple was. It didn't even mention their last name. I tried looking them up on Google, but finally my son said she had a cooking show and I realized why I didn't know them. I am the world's worst cook and I hate to cook. I NEVER watch cooking shows. LOL I might though now. Thanks for a great post.

  9. I agree!! lOVE LOVE these two couples!!

  10. Your articles are so well explained and are so interesting that reading it was a total satisfaction.
    Please keep writing about couples, i'll follow you.


Bentley and I LOVE and read every comment.
