Story: Couple celebrates 10 years of Valentine’s Days

The Denmarks

COCHRAN: Ashley and Calen Denmark first met a little more than 10 years ago. According to Ashley, “We met through his sister.”

She continued with a laugh, “I wouldn’t give him the time of day. I thought he was a country hick.”

Then, something happened, and she said they both realized they were interested in each other at the same time.

Ashley, who is a year older, shared, “I think he said ‘I love you first.’”

In their relationship, Ashley said between she and her husband, who is a law enforcement officer, “I am probably the most patient.”

Calen, Ashley said, “is probably the funniest, and I am the most sensitive.”

The loudest person in the relationship? Ashley said, “That would be a mixture of both.”

She says she is the most social, and Calen is more of an introvert, and probably, Ashley admitted, “the most stubborn.”

The couple has three children – all daughters under the age of 10. When asked who would fall asleep first, Ashley said, “Calen. He works nights, so I am probably the better morning person.”

She added, “And he is the better driver.”

When asked who the better cook was, Ashely said, “That would depend on what it is we are cooking.”

The couple has been together 10 years, and married for eight.

Happy Valentine’s Day to the Denmarks!
