Ted says he trusts himself to not make more mistakes, but he is always aware of the possibility. "Step number one in the 12-step program encourages us to never think we're immune," he says. "So I like staying in the pastor's home or the host's home of the event that I'm speaking at if Gayle's not there. "

Gayle and Ted both say that going through hardship and coming out the other side has made their relationship stronger. "I love him more now after we've walked through these difficulties together and I know his weaknesses," Gayle says. "I think before I always felt like I couldn't get close enough to him. That there was a wall I couldn't get past. Once the huge lights were shown on my husband, we were able to really get behind that wall and walk through that, and that actually gave me more love for him."
