Are you almost done?

Good question.

When I first got to know him,

he plays--

He had long hair

and played for the NFL.

I thought he was gonna be

a complete cheeseball.

But when I met him,

he was perfect.

I thought he was the greatest

thing I've ever met.

He lived in a small house

and didn't have a TV

and drove a truck and was

different than Southern boys,

and he loved to, like,

adventure travel.

I liked to travel

at the time too.

He was this superhero athlete

but also super smart.

He was the best of both worlds,

let's say.

With the kind of person

that Steve is,

he was attracted to

the free spirit of Michel.

the kind of honest bluntness,

uh, willing to try anything,

really no airs about her.


I don't know, you can never

think of Michel settling down.

She was always the life

of the party.

She was always having fun.

Is Michel really

gonna settle down?

Is Michel gonna have kids?

No way.

That's not gonna happen.


No, you gotta try again.

Watch your hams.

As unique as Steve is,

Michel is equally as unique,

and I think she was still

trying to find herself

and didn't know

where she was going.

And I think when she met Steve,

they just started clicking.

And I think it's such

an amazing thing

that both of you said

to me yesterday.

Even if it's pouring rain,

it doesn't matter.

We have each other.

Our family and friends

are gonna be here.

And isn't that, really?

As all us married people know,

it's how we act,

not when things are great--

It's easy to be loving to each

other when things are great.

But how do we act

as a couple together

when things aren't great?

When things are difficult?



Now I guess we could say

you're officially

a New Orleanean.

You married a local girl, you
