Andrew & Jessica
Watching Andrew and Jessica makes me happy! Although we are of very different personalities, they remind me of my own relationship. Andrew is a fun character. He is chill, outgoing and yet very thoughtful and cares deeply for Jessica and his friends. While Jessica, she is simply a sweetheart. Equally friendly, she has a calmer demeanor. Even from an outsider point of view, you can easily tell how they complement each other so well.
If you meet these two people, you can see how sweet they are together. They giggle a lot! And when I asked them about their relationships, they eyes lightened up, and they kept stealing glances at each other. It is as if they just recently got together. To my surprise, they have been together for 4 years. It is not easy to maintain such chemistry for that long.
However, what put a smile on my face was when I could personally witness what his groomsman said: “They support each other faithfully. When troubles come their way, they don’t blame in haste. They show love in what they say.” This is what a mature relationship for me is all about.
Every relationship goes past romance. Reality is not a movie. There will be times when life is just hard. Only then you will know, the beauty of a marriage is not when your spouse is being constantly romantic to you, but it is when you give and receive such unswerving love and support throughout every ups and downs. It is when you know for a fact that you are never alone when troubles come your way. It is when you are fully assured that you will always have that one person you can rely on, you can run to, who loves you unbendingly and trusts in you no matter what. That is what marriage is all about.
Having seen and heard of Andrew and Jessica’s story, I am so happy for them that they seem to have found that deep of love in each other. And I am forever grateful that I have found that one person in my life to spend the rest of my life with.
