Love, much like other things, has undergone a change over the years. With time, its definition has changed and the idea of forever seems more and more improbable. But love, as is often believed, finds its way back and this is precisely what happened with a couple in the United States. They were married for more than 20 years, fought and got divorced. But later, they started seeing each other again and on Christmas this year, he proposed to her – again. And it was a ‘Yes!’
This absolutely heartwarming video was shared by their son Jeffrey and is winning hearts all over. “My parents were married for more than 20 years, divorced, fought a lot, went to work on themselves. Years later, they start dating and as of yesterday, this happened; Congrats Mom and Dad! True love always finds its way back around,” he wrote while sharing the video. Jeffrey’s mother opened her pizza-box-looking Christmas present and found a framed poem in it, written to her by her ex-husband and current boyfriend. What happened next will make you believe in true love again!
