Cheryl & Joe

When the three of us first met over coffee last year, we talked about how they met and their relationship till then.  One thing that they said has stuck with me till now:

"We knew we were meant to be after we survived through some hard times in our relationship.  It happened 12 months into our relationship and then 6 months later.  During those times, we really didn't think we'd be able to make it, but we did and now we know we want to be together for the rest of our lives."

That stuck with me because they were honest.  Because it's not only the good times that makes you right for each other, but how you handle the bad and worst times.  And also because the relationships sold to us on TV and movies, are completely different from the ones that we experience in our lives.  Being a part of Cheryl & Joe's day, it was refreshing to see that they knew what it meant to be together: to love each other unconditionally.
