Josh Turner & Jennifer Ford

The singer met his lovely wife, Jennifer Ford at Nashville's Belmont University back in 1998 when he transferred to the school. Little did Josh know he would be doing more than furthering his education at that time.

Turner recalling when he met Jennifer in his book, Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood, said:

Meeting her wasn’t planned or expected, but our friendship felt completely different. For the first time, I was truly on cloud nine. I can’t really explain that time other than to say it was unbelievable.

The pair took their relationship slow. After dating for years, Turner popped the question after playing a song he wrote for her.

Josh and Jennifer who said “I do” in front of 500 guests back in June 2003, share four sons, Samuel Hawke, Marion Crawford, Colby Lynch, and Hampton Otis.

As for the secret to their blissful and happy marriage, Josh in an interview with The Boot said:

Just being friends and communicating. Like anybody else, we have to take a break from each other from time to time, so we can enjoy the times that we are together, but we’ve always been friends and she’s my biggest cheerleader.

Josh and Jennifer have a love that has stood the test of time. We wish the spouses to never lose that unique sparkle between them!
