Cole and Emily Weitzel have been married a sum total of 2 whole months! They are officially our newlywed couple! However, they’ve actually been together for 10.5 years! A middle school romance turned into something a whole lot bigger for this Treynor duo. The Weitzels are both currently at Iowa State finishing their degrees, but they have spent their summers in Treynor and recently got married at St. Patrick’s in CB and held their reception at The Palace outside Treynor, as well.
Although both are focused on their careers, the couple makes plenty of time for each other. When together, Mr. and Mrs. Weitzel binge-watch marathons of their favorite shows, cook together, walk around town, and hike. Not only do the Weitzels share hobbies, but they believe the secret to marriage, or any relationship for that matter, is choosing to be with each other through both the ups and the downs, as well as communicating. After 10 plus years, they seem to have that down!
Emily says, “It is important to work through difficulties and not just give up when the going gets tough. If you communicate, then getting through the hard times becomes a little easier and you will come out the other side as a stronger couple.” Needless to say, their secret fits perfectly with the two pieces of advice they’d give a newly-engaged couple:
1. Know each other's love languages. When you are conscious of your significant other’s love language, you can make an effort to communicate in that way, making them feel even more special.
2. Never treat a problem as “you against me” but as “us against the problem”.
Wow! It’s hard to believe they’ve only been married 2 months with that kind of advice!
That being said, they have already embraced the imperfections of marriage as Cole says Emily has too many pillows and blankets and Emily says Cole cracks his knuckles and it drives her crazy but they love each other anyway!
Now, truth be told, Emily and Cole just happen to be our niece and nephew-in-law so we’re got the inside scoop and not only do we love them dearly, but we’re pretty sure this Pott. Co. couple will be together forever!
Happy Marriage! Happy Life, you two!
