We believe that there is something very magical and fascinating about weddings and the idea of falling in love and the process that leads up to finding one’s life partner. Beautiful and inspiring love stories have been shared and experienced by couples all around the globe. And some of the ‘ingredients’ to a lasting relationship are evident in some of our favorite couples in the clips we found below.
As a society, we have been inundated with images and stories of what the ‘perfect’ relationship and marriage should look like. Various romantic tales of a princess, who meets her prince charming and gets whisked away to her ‘happily ever after’, have been spun over decades, if not centuries which tend to shape the perception of society as it relates to relationships. As well-crafted as these storylines can be, they tend to leave a lot to be desired and often omit many of the imperfections that co-exist with the bliss of relationships and partnerships that is without a doubt, part of the reality of a healthy marriage.
We have highlighted wonderfully diverse couples in the 4 clips below that have many of the ‘ingredients’ that we believe are important to a ‘Happily Ever After’ experience. Don’t forget to like, share and leave a comment below!
