We’re excited to announce our newest initiative to impact marriages: Project Legacy!  Project Legacy is the stories of mighty marriages that have thrived for over fifty years!

You can read more about Project Legacy at www.mightymarriages.org/legacy.

It is an honor to share the story of our first Honoree Couple:  Ralph & Mary Lou Riggs of Willis, Texas!

Ralph & Mary Lou celebrated their 81st wedding anniversary in November 2013!

I had the privilege of sitting down with Ralph and Mary Lou in their home a little more than a year ago and heard some of their wonderful story of their life together and some of what it takes to not just survive, but thrive!

Not long before I sat down with them, Houston’s Fox 26 News Team did a story on the Riggs.  The video here is from that story.

I hope it inspires and challenges you to continue or start doing what it takes to have a marriage that thrives through the decades!


(If you know of a couple who has a strong marriage of 50+ years, please go to mightymarriages.org/legacy and read how to nominate them for inclusion in Project Legacy.  We want to share their story!)


Blessings for a Mighty Marriage!
