LaToya & Anthony Finch

Home: Markham, IL
Celebrating Their 15th Wedding Anniversary

What advice would you give younger couples?

“To leave egos at the door and let people be themselves,” says LaToya. “Don’t waste time trying to change someone. They’ll mature or they won’t.”

 What is key to the success of your marriage?

“Keeping the romance going,” offers Anthony. “You have to always take time out for each other.”

What do you love most about your spouse?

“That I can be myself and I’m not defined by someone else’s definition of a wife,” shares LaToya.” He understands me, emotionally and spiritually.”

He knew he was in love when…

He drove to TN for Latoya’s 25th birthday party.

She knew she was in love…

After his graduation party.

In 10 years we will…

Be traveling again because our youngest child will be in college.

Before the groom got married, he wished someone had told him…

To take their honeymoon right away.

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

To spend more time traveling.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Grocery shopping.

Our nicknames for each other are…

“L-Boggy” because her name is Latoya and she likes to have a good time. None for Anthony.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

Get away to TN.

Our song is…

” Today I Marry My Best Friend,” written by our aunt.

Our perfect date night is…

Going to a live band to listen to good music.
