Sheldon and Shannon Married in an Emotional Wedding

The couple dated for around two years before they decided to tie the knot. According to the reports, Sheldon knew Shannon would be his wife after their very first date. However, they dated for over two years before getting married on December 31, 1995.

Shannon once shared an interesting incident from her marriage. So, what happened was when she walked down the aisle, she saw all her in-laws crying which made her think if they didn’t like her. But, Sheldon assured her that his family cries at all weddings, and it was a bit more emotional as his father had just passed away.

Secret Behind Their Successful Marriage

The couple have been together for nearly three decades now, and they have been leading a happy marital life. People often ask them about the secret of their joyful marriage. Responding to the question on one occasion, Sheldon said “When we disagree, we do it in a way that is not ever hurtful toward each other.

Besides, they both have immense respect for each other, which has kept them bound as husband and wife for such a long time. Meanwhile, Shannon said: “god blessed me beyond measure when He sent me Shel” in an Instagram post back in December 2020, marking their 25th marriage anniversary.

Do They Share Any Children?

Even after being married for a decade, the Bream couple do not share any children. Seems like the couple enjoys their company and does not want any kids.

They do not have children but do have dogs. The duo first adopted Miss Mocha and later accompanied her with Jasper followed by Biscuit Bream. Cute names must say.

Sheldon Is A Cancer Survivor – His Recovery Journey

Sheldon was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 24. As a matter of fact, Shel had just got engaged to Shannon at the time the couple got the devastating news. It only came to the media years later in 2020 when Shannon talked about her husband’s cancer journey during her appearance on Fox Nation’s Ride to Work.  She revealed,

It was a complete shocker. He was a college athlete, very healthy and strong and he’d had an ear problem – like a ringing in his ear – for a long time.

The journalist further said,

They treated him for everything, ear infections, all kinds of stuff, and they said ‘Well, we need to rule one thing out. It’s a long shot.’ But the test came back and they said ‘You’ve got a brain tumor. It’s about the size of a golf ball and it’s got to come out.

Afterward, Sheldon underwent a 9-hour-long surgery and it was a success, however, it brought some complications; including damage to his facial nerves causing partial paralyzing for a few months.

Around a month before their scheduled marriage, back in 1995, everything started to get normal. The duo had gone to Pizza Hut for a lunch buffet and Shannon noticed “the corner of Sheldon’s mouth move. “From there, he slowly began to recover. And it still took a while. But thank God he’s good. No more return of that” Shannon said.
