We believe that love evolves and changes its form through time. What someone finds attractive then will be different from what will be attractive 50 years after. So, in our quest to trace the thread of love that binds relationships closer together, we talked to couples who’ve been married for different durations of time with the hopes of finding a secret or two in their answers. Read about their stories below and for sure, you’ll get even more excited for your own “I Do’s”!
P.S. Watch the full video interview at the end of the post!
Carlo and Pia have been friends for more than 10 years before they got married. What attracts them to each other is the drive and excellence they both have for the things they’re passionate about. Though they’re new to the whole marriage life, they’re enjoying every bit of it by learning about each other a little more everyday.
Anton and Marla are polar opposites and this is what attracts them both to each other. Anton brings so much energy to Marla’s life while Marla grounds Anton with her gracefulness and quiet confidence. They complement each other very well and are definitely better people with each other.
Angela was a single mom when Jan came along. While stakes were higher for both of them back then, Jan was able to charm Angela with his happy disposition and infectious laughter. In return, Angela shows her love for him through acts of service which she was able to do more after they got married.
Both lawyers by profession, Ric and Mylene have mastered the art of agreeing to disagree. Most of their fights are petty and trivial because they’ve reached the point in their marriage where they can just be fully themselves.
Being married for so long is a blessing that 95-year-old Reling and 92-year-old Tessie don’t take for granted. With wisdom that comes from age and experience, this couple don’t really have to say much in order to inspire younger couples. Just by staying together and being faithful to one another for such a long time is enough proof that love in marriage can truly last.
