Wade and Nicole Martin – Their Story!
Wade Martin shares: I am 41 years old been married to my wife Nicole for 18 years and have three boys. I am an ordained Elder in COGIC, musician, a Major in the National Guard, and work with the Dept. Of Veteran Affairs. When me and my wife got married in Alabama in 1996*, it was still illegal for us to get married.
It was still illegal in Alabama to marry interracially. In 2000 The Alabama Interracial Marriage Amendment was approved repealing a 1901 law making interracial marriage illegal.
