Some couples aim to be picture perfect like Hov and Bey but that's because they haven't heard about Brandon and V. My brother took time out of his busy schedule to share their love story and how they maintain a happy marriage. They met 12 years ago and are going 6 years strong in this marriage game. They make it look so easy! You know what they say, anything worth having is worth fighting for.
My brother Brandon shares: "It's a daily effort on becoming the best version of myself because as the best version of myself I can give and share this with those that I love" such as his wife and their beautiful little girl and handsome baby boy.
Brandon and Vanna met fresh out of high school at the Long Beach Towne Center September 23rd, 2005. Brandon explains "I was not looking for a wife that night but our paths crossed at the perfect time. "
I proposed in 2010. I wasn't nervous because I knew she was ready for me to propose. I just wanted to make sure I would be the man she expected me to be. She was very excited but she knew it was coming.Of course there is a little nervousness when proposing but it was not because of her. I wanted to make sure that I would be the man she deserved before proposing. It took longer than she expected, but when I proposed it felt right.
May 2012 the couple said "I Do".
What Brandon admires mostly about Vanna is "her strength and commitment to our family. She is the glue that holds this family together. Our marriage is very special to both of us. We treat it with respect and let no one or nothing coming between us."
It's easy to love someone when things are good but you find the true intentions of a person when faced with adversity. I remember being in my early 20's unemployed (recent laid off after just purchasing a 2007 Dodge Charger brand new off the lot #mistake) and living at my parents. Vonna and I had been together for less than 2 years. I felt really down because I had no idea what I wanted to do in life. She never made me feel like less of man because of my situation. She continued to encourage me. We talked about our long term goals in life and did vision boards together. Even to this day she continues show me that she is the one even though I 100% know it.
