Talk about making quick and right decisions. Mike Krzyzewski’s wife, Mickie Krzyzewski, was married merely four hours after Mike’s graduation.
It all began on March 1st, 1969, after Army had defeated the Navy, and Mike was handed the game ball. Along with the game ball, he also received a call with a piece of bad news- Mike’s father was suffering from a cerebral hemorrhage. By the time he reached the hospital in Chicago, Mike’s father had passed away. A few months later, Mike received his diploma. And four hours later, Mike Krzyzewski and Carol “Mickie” Marsh got married in the Catholic Chapel at West Point.

Like most lovely relationships, Mike and Mickie’s relationship began with a date. Mike and Mickie Krzyzewski’s first date was two years before their marriage, and she learned something quite surprising.
Mickie and Mike Krzyzewski’s first date was a Martha and the Vandella‘s concert in Chicago. But had the past been a little different, Mike Krzyzewski’s wife could have been someone else. This is because Mickie was Mike’s third choice. This truth was revealed to Mickie by Mike himself as he believed that the consequences of telling the truth were less painful than lying to her.

Talk about a truthful man. Mike’s loyalty to his wife is something Mickie is proud of, and it seems that this loyalty will never waver.
This is one of those possible incompatibilities that people talk about. Mike Krzyzewski’s wife, Mickie Krzyzewski, was raised as a southern baptist while Mike himself was raised as a Catholic.
Being raised differently, there were also things that they had heard about. Mickie grew up hearing that Catholics hid guns and gold in their basement while the Pope wished for world domination. Mike, on the other hand, had grown up believing that anyone who was not raised as a catholic would go to hell.

It seems that these old beliefs did not cause any problem in the couple’s relationship. And they are proving the world that Catholics and Baptists can live a great life together.

Having so many grandkids makes sure that Mickie never has to forget the kind of love she received from her and Mike Krzyzewski’s children. This means that she will receive the kind of love from her grandkids that she used to get from her daughters.
