That’s my mom and my paps. Today is their 39th wedding anniversary.
I would say that their marriage is not perfect at all. Just like the other couples, they have lived in the joyous moment and painful times. They don’t claim always that they are madly in love with each other, but obviously, they can’t live without each other.
Their opposite character made them weary fitfully, but they have shown that unlimited sense of understanding and accepting each other are really necessary for any relationship.
Marriage with them is no fairytale. All my life I have witnessed them grow old together and closer with each passing year. They’ve been in a ride of turbulence and how they managed to land safely is such a blessings.
Sometimes, I still heard them complaining about each other, but never lost their sight to what they have promised 39 years ago, for better or worse.
Happy Anniversary to my wonderful Parents. Your togetherness in good and bad times has taught us teamwork. Your tolerance for each other’s habits has taught us patience. Your support during each other’s crises has taught us solidarity. Your lives as our parents have taught us how to live.
Lots of love.
