11 years ago, a young man woke up and after showering, he opened his closet, got dressed in a suit, tied a tie, and drove from Manhattan, Kansas to a little town called Minneapolis, Kansas. He drove with a young lady sitting in the passenger seat. Both were excited, nervous, and had no idea of the seriousness of what they were about to do. They were filled with hopes and dreams for the future and intoxicated with affection for each other. When they arrived in Minneapolis, they drove to the courthouse and walked inside with two of their friends. They both stood before a judge, handed her a piece of paper, and she began. Though neither of them realized it, when they walked out of that court room, something profound had changed. They were married.
