Shivers first wedding

Jeannie & Terry Shiver, Circa 1976

Married November 27, 1976
Renewed after 30 years
Pine Hill, Alabama

"We met drag racing during high school," says Jeannie. "And I won!" Terry, duly impressed, followed her to a pool hall after the race. "She had rolled down the window of her black 1966 Ford Fairlane 500, and I saw this beautiful girl with long black hair," remembers Terry, who works as an inspector for a railroad company. "I was driving my red 1974 Ford Pinto and was sure that I could outrun her. I couldn't, and the rest is history!"

They both slowed down considerably for their first date, though. This time, they rode bicycles. "We hit it off and started seeing each other all the time," Jeannie says. They were married less than a year later, on Terry's 19th birthday. "We've had a wonderful marriage," she says.
