If there's a recipe for relationship success, Krista Faye Gladman and Gerald Terrell Jr. have found that it includes equal parts of friendship and time.

The two, who met as students at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, N.C., a decade ago, credit their longevity to shared spirituality and the depth of their bond, she said.

"In terms of friendship you have trust, honesty and respect and we feel like those are the key ingredients, along with other things, that really make our relationship," Mrs. Terrell said. "And we have a lot of fun together. He makes me laugh - a lot."

The couple exchanged vows Saturday at Jane M. Smith Memorial Church in Charlotte.
