 I am romantic but I think it takes more than just flowers. Marriage is great and blissful, but it takes work and understanding. You have to make time to spend together and to work through your issues. The more we grown and learn, both as individuals and as a couple, the closer we get.

 I knew as soon as I saw her, She’s beautiful but, more importantly, we had a connection. Through her I’ve learned that you need to have a life outside this business, otherwise you’ll be left feeling profoundly empty. So marrying Jill was a turning point for me. I thought, ‘Whatever happens now, I have a loving wife and that’s what it’s all about.’
