They're known as the first couple of The Bachelor franchise – and for good reason. Trista and Ryan Sutter, who met on the first season of The Bachelorette, will celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary later this year.
"Did I think when it all started that I would be married for almost ten years and have two children? No!" Trista says, opening up in PEOPLE's special issue celebrating 25 seasons of The Bachelor.
Trista says she and Ryan, who reside in Vail, Colo., with their two children (son Max, 5, and daughter Blakesley, 4), have been able to create a wonderful life for themselves by choosing when to step into the spotlight.

Whenever Ryan Sutter was looking for a pick-me-up along the 26.2 mile course of Monday's Boston Marathon, he needed only to think of his pal Ethan Zohn.
Sutter was running the race for former Survivor winner, who was unable to participate due to a recurrence of Hodgkin's lymphoma.
"My inspiration was Ethan, but no matter what I did physically it's nothing compared to what he and other people with cancer do every day," the former Bachelorette star told the Boston Herald. "That kept me going."
