At age 23, Bishop T.D. Jakes met his future wife, Serita. Thirty years and five children later, the bishop and his wife, the “first lady” of the Potter’s House, say they continue to evolve and work to keep their marriage strong. Plus, Serita opens up about the people—mostly ex-girlfriends, she says—who didn’t think they should get married.
T.D. and Serita Jakes were married in 1981 and have five children. They testified they have experienced difficulties like all couples, but that through the difficult times they were able to come closer to each other. In an earlier interview, Bishop Jakes talked about the toll it took on the family when his 14-year old daughter became pregnant.Other events challenged their relationship, but they overcame them. Not even six months into their marriage the couple suffered a devastating car crash that left doctors unsure if Serita would ever walk again because of damage to her feet and legs.
