"I was a singer in a band called All Ends. He was an artist and a biker who just moved to Gothenburg to be closer to his motorcycle club. We met out a couple times through mutual friends and I would always catch him staring at me. I guess he was trying to figure out if I was already seeing someone. Finally at a friends anniversary party, he gathered up the courage to ask me out. Now I've been his wife for 6 years and I fall more in love with him everyday. Don't let his tough exterior fool you. He may be all 'Hells Angels' on the outside, but he's a kitten on the inside. He's the perfect balance for me because I need adrenaline in my life but also a beautiful heart. The way he is with our children takes my breath away. He's such a caring father and husband"

Esta práctica es muy importante, porque según un estudio publicado por Science of Us a mediados de los 90, las personas que cuentan más entusiastamente cómo se conocieron, tienen más posibilidades de continuar juntas que las que lo hicieron de forma más negativa.

Por eso no importa que lo cuentes, sino que la forma en que lo hagas…

A continuación te dejamos algunas lindas imágenes que puedes encontrar en la cuenta de Instagram.

In 2013, After 81 years together, John and Ann Betar became the longest married couple in America. They eloped on November 25th, 1932 after fleeing their close-knit Syrian neighborhood in Bridegport, Connecticut. They drove as fast as they could to Harrison, New York to avoid Ann's father's plans to marry her off to a man 20 years older. Ann: "John was not the boy next door, but the boy across the street who I loved." John: "That's why she married me, she loved that car." To put it in historical perspective, when the couple got married in 1932, the Great Depression was at its worst, Franklin D. Roosevelt had just been elected president, John F. Kennedy was a high school student, and Adolf Hitler was about to come to power in Germany. John: "We have watched the world change together. The key is to always agree with your wife.” John and Ann Betar raised their family in Bridgeport, where John ran a grocery store before becoming a realtor. John: "I was a fruit peddler and we had a lot of vegetables. We lived on vegetables." Ann: "We were lucky to eat!" They had 5 children, 14 grandchildren, and 16 great-grandchildren. Ann: “That’s what makes life what it is. We were fortunate enough to live long enough to see this. It’s really one of the most gratifying things in the world to see your grandchildren, your great-grandchildren become adults." So what's the secret to making marriage last a lifetime? John: "Just contentment….with what you have, what you're doing." Ann: "Don't think that life is great all the way around." John: "It's only about cooking. It's only about cooking, that's the only arguments we had." Ann: "See? That's what he thinks! It's only about the cooking." And the Betar's advice for married couples nowadays: Ann: "Marriage isn't a lovey-dovey thing, you know, for 81 years. Couples expect miracles of each other like 'you have to agree with me, this is what I want to do,' but it doesn't work that way. " John: "You learn to accept one another's ways of life, agreements, disagreements — disagreements on your children, preparation on bringing up your kids. That was the main interest was our children"

"Ten years ago I was married and living in Denmark when a clairvoyant told me, "You divorce your husband, meet dark-haired man and live in England. I see you happy on boat. You are smiling." WHAT??? At the time, I didn't want to get a divorce and left the reading angry and in tears. Five years later, I realized my marriage was dead and filed for a divorce. I spent years after that searching for Mr. Right. I started asking my friends to help me find men to go out with. One of my friends said she knew of someone and set me up on a blind date. There was one caveat, the eligible bachelor in question lived in a different country. So the first time we met was over Skype. The second I saw him, I KNEW he was the one. But before I got a chance to say anything, he said, "Do you believe in Serendipity? I have been looking for my soulmate my whole life and I think I just found her." Turns out he is from England, where we now live with my 2 children. He also has a boat in Ibiza. The clairvoyant was right! Sometimes we become so settled and complacent in our current relationships that we can't even fathom a different reality. Taking the step to get divorced despite being attached felt like shedding a layer of skin. I felt so much lighter and happier. Now I'm finally living my truth and spending my life with the man of my dreams."

"Our love story is a tale of destiny. It's proof that what's meant to be will always find a way and come full circle. Our story began in Saudi Arabia, of all places, where both of our parents worked as ex-patriots for the Oil Company Armco. Even though both of our families are originally from different states in the U.S., Michael and I would meet for the first time as babies half way across the world. If that's not fate enough, we were also neighbors. Over time our families grew close and went on to celebrate many holidays together including christmases and birthdays. We even took random trips together to the ice cream lady down the street. However, our young love would come to a temporary halt when both of our parents decided after several years of living in Saudi to head back to the states and go their separate ways. It would be a very long time before Michael and I would ever speak another word to each other again. It wasn't until 20 years later, through the magic of the internet, that we reconnected. We reminisced over an old album of photos on Facebook from when we were babies living in Saudi. These cherished photos led to many laughs and trips down memory lane. To our astonishment there was a spark, a fire that had been repressed deep down inside both of us. We decided to rekindle our friendship and see each other for the "first" time in what seemed to be a lifetime. Apprehension, uncertainty, and an undeniably strong bond ushered in the sense of pure joy when we finally reunited in Naples, Florida. It was in that moment we realized we had a destined true love, blessed by the grace of God. We feel we are the definition of real soulmates."
