The band afterward released Dark Before Dawn and Ember , which debuted at number one and three on the Billboard , respectively.

In the United States alone, the band has sold more than 7 million units  and yielded three RIAA-certified platinum records, two gold records, and several certified singles, including two multi-platinum, two platinum, and five gold.

After 15 years of marriage, I'm so used to living a separate life with our 3 kids. My two daughters have each chosen a man who is emotionally and physically available, thank goodness. Make sure she knows the plan, so you both can dress appropriately.
