Ben says his goal is to win his wife over again every day, and according to Erin, he's doing a great job.
“Every day he’s up before me, and he writes me a letter,” Erin says. “It’s a short one, but it’s a letter. And since I don’t do coffee, I drink Coke, he’s got one waiting.”
For Ben, these little romantic gestures come naturally and straight from the heart.
“Erin is my dream girl,” Ben says. “Why would I not continue to court her and win her over every day? That’s always my goal.”
According to Erin, Ben won her heart even before they met at their alma mater, Jones County Junior College in Mississippi.
"He was like a celebrity crush to me,” Erin gushes. “He was the president of every club and very popular but not exclusive. I would see someone eating alone in the cafeteria, and there was Ben, pulling up a chair beside them.”
The attraction was mutual.
“I remember seeing Erin the first week of school," Ben says. “She was walking across the student union, and she had a pixie haircut. I didn’t know what a pixie cut was at the time, but I knew I liked it.”
The two had a few missed connections but when Erin finally interviewed Ben for the school yearbook, they both knew instantly that they were meant to be together. “Six days later we decided we would get married, and that was that," says Erin.
Of course, the couple's love has only grown since welcoming their adorable 2-year-old daughter, Helen.
Aren't Ben and Erin the cutest couple? Their relationship is like something out of a fairytale, and we're very much here for it.
