Marriage is both very tough and very rewarding. It doesn’t matter who you are, it takes a lot of work. There is a lot of give and there is a lot of take. The same is true for Duck Dynasty stars Willie and Korie Robertson who are approaching 30 years of marriage, which is no small feat.

To celebrate the special occasion, the happy couple escaped to Las Vegas where the latter posted an update to Instagram.

Korie wrote, “Almost 30 years married to this man and still get excited for 24 hours in Vegas with him! Reminiscing about the early days coming here for our big industry trade show. All the couples left the kids with the grands (thank you, mom!) and had fun working and playing!”

Thirty years and the couple appears happier than ever. Even happier for the grandparents who stepped up for grandparent duty.

She continued, “The first year we stayed in an old run down hotel off-strip (we’ve since moved on up, ha!) tried our hand at poker all night (very low stakes, trust me) and then took turns working the booth and taking naps under the table. Our little space with all of our duck calls laid out on the camouflage covered table wasn’t that busy in those days. @officialduckcommander had been around awhile but still only serious duck hunters knew about us.”

The post highlighted how far the couple has come in thirty years. Although it wasn’t always easy, it is easy to forget about the early days of Duck Commander before it grew to the size that it did with Duck Dynasty. Everyone has to start somewhere, and the Roberston’s were no different.

There has been a lot of change for the folks from Duck Commander. It hasn’t just been Korie and Willie from Duck Dynasty. It has also been a little of Sadie who recently added her first child with her husband. Children change everything for people. It is an inescapable fact of life. But, Sadie is taking that change in stride saying, “People warned us that having a baby would change everything… which is true but they were completely wrong when they said it like that was a negative thing! From the wise words of Hannah Montana, ‘life’s what you make it so let’s make it rock.’”

Her perspective is different. Rather than look at what she was losing she looked at what she was gaining. Life is about perspective. Sadie from Duck Dynasty has a lot of it, which she will especially need now as a parent. Kids change the equation in a lot of households, but it’s all about how you handle it.
