Jefferson & Cynthia's 40th Wedding Anniversary | Photo Booth Rental NYC

Dave Meurer said, "A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences." There are many studies and statistics which supports that half of marriages in the United States end up filing for a divorce.

The reasons for a couple to file for a divorce could be endless if they believe that they are better of apart than trying to work out their differences. Among the other half who stays married are couples like Pastors Jefferson and Cynthia, who recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary at the beautiful venue, Leonards in Great Neck, NY. Together with their kids, grand kids, family and church members, they celebrated their love for each other and renewed their vows.

Many young couples may ask, what is their secret for a long marriage? And, how would one know if they will still be in love with their partner 40 years in the future? As i was watching Mr. Jefferson share a story of when they were dating in the Caribbean Island of Barbados, I could not resist feeling overwhelmed and intimidated thinking about all the possible scenario that could happen in my personal marriage, both positive and negative. I then decided to view Jefferson and Cynthia's milestone marriage achievement as an achievable goal even for young couples like myself starting their marriage.
