After years of marriage, Manoj and Deshini Singh, still find it difficult to keep their hands off each other. The happy couple have been married for the past 23 years and up to this day, still express their never ending love for each other. Speaking to the Rising Sun, the love birds said that marriage is a beautiful experience and not just a bed of roses.
“Love is such a crazy and unexpected feeling that you get when you least expect it. We were both 19-years-old when we decided to get married. Most teenagers our age would say it is too soon, but we just knew we had to spend the rest of our lives together,” said Deshini.
Reflecting on the past, the two recall being introduced by a friend and said it was truly love at first sight. “I saw her for the first time and I just knew that I had to marry her. We were dating for about a year and even though we were extremely young, we both do not regret the decision. After 23 years, I can still say I love her just like the first day I saw her beautiful face,” said Manoj.
The couple said their secret to a long lasting marriage is about accepting each other, trust, compromise, support and encouragement.
“Marriage is about standing together and helping each other grow every day. You take a vow to love and care for someone till you die, such a vow should be treasured and honoured every day. So many teenagers today run off and get married but don’t understand that being married has its ups and downs. We have endured so many obstacles and challenges in our marriage, but we still feel love for each other,” they said.
