Have you seen Little People, Big World? If so, it’s likely you already know who this dynamic duo is! Audrey + Jeremy Roloff got married a couple of years ago — in fact, we shared their anniversary photos here! Since then, they’ve been seeking to inspire couples to keep their marriage strong + constantly work at it through their site — Beating 50 Percent. Audrey tells us, during our engagement we were bombarded with remarks from people who rolled their eyes and spouted sarcastic, “good luck,” remarks at our future promise. We were shocked at the negative comments regarding marriage… So we’ve made it our mission to inspire others through our blog Beating 50 Percent.
A+J teamed up with Dawn Photography for one of their many projects… This one involved a romantic getaway weekend to the PNW! There, they uncovered many of Oregon’s hidden gems, particularly the picturesque lookouts. Dawn Photography shares I have a goal to photograph at every lookout in the PNW! When I mentioned these places to Audrey & Jeremy, we knew we had to adventure out to Bald Butte Lookout and see what it was all about!
Let’s learn a little bit more about their site and head to the PNW with Audrey + Jeremy Roloff!
A+J share This mission for Beating 50 Percent was inspired in part, by a photo that we saw in an old antique shop of an elderly couple holding each other close. Under the photo it read, “Back in our day, when something broke, you fixed it instead of throwing it away.”
We are stubbornly confident that there are still people in pursuit of covenant marriages. Marriages that are devoted, completely committed, persistently selfless, value-centered, joy-filled, and love-based.
How sweet are these two?!
When our grandparents were growing up, if their car, bike, sink, marriage, or radio broke, they fixed it. Nowadays, many people don’t know how to fix those. If it breaks, they just buy a new one, a better one. We want to prove and also inspire others that marriage is not something to replace, but rather fix when things get tough.
Is this incredible or what?! We’re dreaming of the PNW now…
Beating 50 Percent is about having better than average marriages, and giving more than 50% to your spouse. Our hope is that we can inspire others to be compelled to give more, serve more, learn more, play more, seek more, and love more. Always more.
We want our marriage to be marked by “fixing,” instead of “throwing away. A marriage that Beats 50 Percent.
We here at GWS are on board with that! Thanks to Dawn Photography, and Audrey + Jeremy Roloff.
