Before agreeing to go on The Oprah Show, David, Sally's husband of a year and a half, says he never thought about why he got married.

"I knew intrinsically what the reasons were, but I wasn't sure I had the right answer for it," he says. "Every time I've been asked that question in the past five days, I've had a different answer to it."

Oprah says there's no right answer to this question...there's only your answer.

When they were in their early 40s, David says he and Sally decided it was time to settle down and have a family. "I think when you're younger you have these expectations where you're going to have that puppy love thing and it's going to last forever," he says. "Our expectations were a little more realistic."

David was married once before, but this is Sally's first marriage. Why did she decide to make it official? "I got married because I was tired of being alone," she says. "I wanted to have companionship and just be together with David."

The couple now has a 10-month-old baby together, and though Sally says marriage is a lot of work, it's worth the effort. "I see how our family comes together as a unit," she says. "That kind of reminds me as to this is why I got married, besides loving my husband."
