Karin and Eric Hencken have been married for 23 years. They met their Senior Year at James Madison University. It must have been fate because Karin grew up in Havertown, Pennsylvania and Eric grew up in Berwyn, Pennsylvania! They were married a year later. After children, Anja and Matthew were born, the couple moved back to the area and now live in Paoli, Pennsylvania. Much to their children’s disgust, Karin and Eric are best friends, still hold hands and frequently go on “dates”.

Eddie and Karen Sarkissian met been married for 23 years. They met in May 1980, while accompanying others on Northeast High School's senior prom. Their first date was in October of that year and they have been together ever since (for 33 years to be exact). They credit meeting in their teens to their youthful ways (um, well, what some might call childish, perhaps :) ), and have an their own language that few understand. They like to laugh and play tricks on one another (well, um, to insult one another), and to their parents' ire, waited eleven years before having a child. Their son, Mark, helps to keep them young and also shares their language (um, which, um, sometimes contains a colorful language (um, which some might call, inappropriate), who is an accomplished drummer with the School of Rock's house band.

I vote for couple #10!! I was friends with Karin in college at JMU when she met Eric. I'll never forget the story of how they met - it was at his fraternity party and he was nervous about approaching her and blurted out "I just want you to know I think you're really cute!" They have been inseparable ever since and are the perfect example of what marraige should be - love, true friendship and soulmates.
