Married to the Franchise
Living a Championship Life of Partnership
About the Book
Jonathan Carroll married Nkechi Okoro when he was twenty-five years old, after an eighteen-month courtship. He knew that Nkechi was a “franchise player” who would lead him to a championship life from the moment they first met in college five years earlier. More than ten years after saying “I do,” she has more than delivered. In modern society, Jonathan and Nkechi’s relationship and rise into a marriage of champions seems like a rare occurrence. However, the truth is that there are similar couples from all walks of life who manage to maintain a committed bond while striving to be the best they can be. Married to the Franchise chronicles both Jonathan’s road to being in a position as a “relationship owner” where he could partner with a woman of Nkechi’s caliber, as well as the journeys of other men who found franchise players with whom to share a life. It explores the ways that these couples manage to keep walking side by side through financial ups and downs, career changes, and family expansion.
