You might say that John and Shanel's relationship is child's play. Not that they treat each other as children but because of the way they met and the childlike values they cling to in order to keep their marriage healthy and flourishing.
John and Shanel became John and Shanel because of Shanel's daughter Taylor. John had befriended Taylor at church and their relationship grew before he had even met Shanel. So when the introduction happened there was an instant connection and Taylor went about ensuring that the two kept talking. Her plan worked though. Taylor went so far as to blurt out Shanel's phone number to John, which ultimately lead to the two becoming a couple. As Chanel put it she was “straight up played” by her daughter.
While it's a playful and fun introduction it also underscores the playful comradery that they keep as a part of their daily relationship. In their story you'll hear about the games these two play that not only communicate the depth of their commitment but also the affection that they share. John comments how they are always playing games together and enjoying each moment together.
Watch their story and as you do consider ways that you can incorporate play into your own relationship. And you, like John and Shanel, will watch that play mature into a long lasting love.
Congrats John and Shanel! Thanks for teaching us the importance of play in our relationships!
