#SurvivingMarriage – 50+ Years of Marriage with Our Parents

Ep 010 – What better way of marking the 10th episode of the podcast than with a talk with Rufus’ parents, who have been married over 50 years, about marriage, life, inlaws, society and much more.

Co-hosts Rufus and Jenny Triplett enjoyed this casual conversation with a couple that have been a part of their lives and marriage for over 50 years and 30 years respectively. Rufus Sr & Donzella Triplett are the parents of Rufus Jr, in-laws to Jenny and have been married 51 years. Fun fact…they got married the same day Rufus was born.

When you have this type of marriage longevity in your family, it’s selfish not to share the stories behind it and the wisdom that comes out of it. There is no Food for Thought segment as all of the meat is in the interview. This is the tenth episode of the Surviving Marriage Podcast. Be sure to SUBSCRIBE. RATE. and REVIEW. Oh, and follow on social media and share with a friend. @survivingmarriage
