Here is a very brief memoir I wrote for my wife as an anniversary gift for our first year of marriage. Friends who have read the book strongly encouraged us to publish it so here it is. It is very brief, but I hope you enjoy. 🙂

This book took me through many emotions as Derek I journeyed with Derek and Yecenia through the highs and lows that come with the first year of marriage. It gave me the man’s view of the first year of marriage and all the emotions that come with it. It is a great read for anyone and it makes you feel like you made the journey with them.Beth Kohut
The Joys of Marriage was such a delight to read. This was an honest look at the first year of marriage, complete with the joy, laughter, struggle, and even heartbreak all marriages face. This book had me laughing out loud (love the bathroom scene), but also feeling the pain Derek felt when they had to move from the apartment. I would love to read more from this author.Tina Goetz
