A love story with a fairy tale ending

I don’t get to witness one every day, but this definitely takes the cake.

The couple comes from different cultural backgrounds. He was raised and grew up abroad. She came from a poor family in the South and has a young son out of wedlock. The couple met online and nurtures a relationship even if they are thousands miles apart. They have plans of spending their lives together until a recent tragedy almost took the woman’s life. It would have been a very sad love story for the couple if she didn’t survived the disaster.

The man travelled 7,000 miles just to be with her. The two met at the hospital. She was nervous at first thinking that he might not accept her because of her disfigured face. She is no longer the pretty woman that he once adored. She was hoping that he would turn his back on her, but he never did. He stays by her side instead and does everything he can to send the woman he loves to the best hospital in the region for treatment.

While recuperating, he surprised her with the best gift she could ever imagine. He proposed to her. It’s the most romantic thing hospital staff and fellow patients have seen in years. The woman thought this day would never come. He’s busy taking care of her at the hospital but she never realized he was also looking for an engagement ring to give her. They eventually got married before she was released from the hospital. Their love story didn’t end there. By this time, the man could have taken his new bride and her son to his country to start a new life. Fin

Couple’s Corner: Kiss and make up

Funny I had a hard time composing an entry for Couples Corner last week when the theme was very easy to tackle (misunderstanding). Oh yes I remember now it’s that teeny weenie jealousy about his ex’s picture that he forgot to remove from his wallet. Was it his style to make me jealous? He said it’s not what I think it is (the misplaced pix). Oh come on. Although he admitted it was an honest mistake on his part. Remember the ‘whirlwind’ beginning of our love story? He must have forgotten to take out what is there to remove from his wallet. And it made me really mad and I don’t listen to reason when I’m angry (jealousy fit). He knows that. Before, I get easily upset by petty things, but he knows how to brighten up my face. So our “little” misunderstanding was settled less than two hours because I don’t play hard to get. Initially, he would talk to me as if nothing happened then he brought out a VHS tape to watch.

I remember it was an Andy Garcia and Meg Ryan’s movie titled ‘When a man loves a woman.’ The movie chronicles one woman’s (Ryan) alcoholism and her husband’s (Garcia) efforts to help her. The story was far from ours, but it made me realized that my husband through the good time and the bad will love and understand me for all time.

We love to spend our time watching movies at home as our bonding moment and our kids got their love for movies from us. They even know how to use video torrents to look for movies or the latest music video online.
