It’s Valentine’s Day and what better time to salute couples in love. The Defender is celebrating Sweetheart’s Day by acknowledging some of our favorite couples….as they share their secrets to making love work.

Dwight and Genora Boykins

Married: 30 Years

How we met?: Traveling (without a question)

Favorite thing to do together?: Truly respect your spouse being different and achieving different goals. God made Genora into a beautiful lady who lives by her faith. I love my wife and try to show it daily. 

How do you overcome conflict?: As humans we will always have disagreements in relationships. We typically give one another quiet time to gather our thoughts before speaking. Having totally different personalities, you have to respect one another’s opinion even if you disagree. It’s tough, however, it also “Keeps the Flames….Burning”!!❤️
