Dear young couples,
We found love in the most unexpected and complicated moment. I was a 23-year old unemployed struggling to pay off a Php2 Million debt with a commission based career while Chin was struggling with her minimum wage job only to make both ends meet week after the other. We had a rough start and we experienced the lowest of lows. We were not successful when we met each other. We were two struggling failures who came together and worked our way out to succeed as a team.
We made it through the most terrifying moments of our life because we chose each other even when life wasn’t beautiful, even when we weren’t lovable, even when we got hurt, even when we had all the reasons to let go. We chose each other over pain, over the nasty words, over pride and ego.
Love is a choice. It is not surprising to know that most couples who stay together for years aren’t the sweetest or successful. A lasting relationship is not composed of two perfect people, but rather imperfect people who choose to love even when it hurts, to forgive even when it’s hard, to forget even when it’s painful, and to believe in each other even when it doesn’t make sense anymore. It is a choice that we make every day of our lives.
Celebrate each other’s season. Be there for each other’s struggles. Support each other’s dreams. Let your love bring out the best in you and God be the center of everything that you do. Marriage isn’t always about winning but choosing to stay even when we know we’re losing the battle. For richer or poorer, For better or worse.
Our story may be different from yours, but we wish that you always choose each other no matter what happens. If you’re meant to be together, you will stay together. But you can’t stay together if you don’t choose each other. God bless your relationship ❤️
Sending our love,
George & Chin
