David and Susan Tierney just celebrated their 50th year of marriage together. Learn about how they met in Venezuela, built a life together in Phoenix and their thoughts on nomadic travel.
Today's episode is special. For the 30th anniversary of this podcast I had the unique opportunity to sit down with my folks and interview them while visiting with them on Martha's Vineyard for their 50th wedding anniversary. In a time when one out of every two marriages in the US ends in divorce and the average lifespan of a marriage is 8.2 years, it's a treat to interview two people who have made it work for so long. And it's an honor to be able to share stories and wisdom from the two people who are my greatest teachers and mentors.
In this interview we discuss how they met each other in the Peace Corps in Venezuela, their move to wild west frontier of Phoenix, AZ in 1969, starting & growing a law firm which today holds the distinction of Best Law Firm in Arizona for the 8th year running as rated by Ranking Arizona. We also discuss the immigration problem confronting the US and what can be done to develop a more sensible and sustainable immigration policy in America. Enjoy!
