Love is difficult. It is a definite roller coaster ride where you are constantly anticipating what’s next to come. It is both exhilarating and frightening at the same time. But it is an adventure and you never know what might come of it. A relationship is like this in more ways than one. We all change and learn new things each day. In marriage, you are dedicating your life to another and telling them that you are willing to grow with them and conquer the high slopes of the roller coaster, no matter what lies ahead. When you have true love, loving and growing together should be second nature.
Joanne says, “It’s hard to believe that we have been together for nine years and you have always been in my memory when I think back on all the moments when I was happy, sad, scared, or encouraged. Before I noticed, I could no longer leave you. I always feel so lucky to grow with you.” To be in love with someone is one thing, but to grow in love is a whole other idea. The growth that Joanne and Kai have undergone together is a true reminder of how powerful love is. Not to mention they have gone through 2 years of long distance relationship as well! Although life itself is full of happy and sad days, when there is someone to share it with, the ride is a little less.
So in retrospect what did we learn? We uncovered yet another secret to a successful relationship with the help from Joanne and Kai. Growing in love is what binds a relationship. But let us not forget that we grow not for the sake of simply growing but to build a stronger and mightier bond with not only your special someone but family and friends as well.
