The Truth About Marriage
Quickly, Lance and Kristin's friendship developed into something more. Lance popped the question just months after meeting Kristin. The bride-to-be threw herself into wedding planning and admits that she "paid more attention to the rock on her left hand than to readying her heart for the journey ahead."
A year after they met, the picture-perfect couple said, "I do." Kristin quit her job, rented her house, sold her car, and moved to France with Lance so he could focus on cycling.
During their marriage, Lance went on to beat cancer and win the most illustrious bicycle race in the world, the Tour de France, four times. Kristin stayed at home and raised their three young children in the French Riviera. From the outside, it seemed like they had a glamorous, happy life...but Kristin says the fairy tale didn't end "happily ever after."
