(Taken from Vanilla Magazine, Feb 2008, p.31)
Last December, I agreed to take on this “Love of a Lifetime” story assignment for the Valentine’s issue of Vanilla magazine. Even though it was smack during the Christmas period and I was really hoping to enjoy the precious work leave I had, I decided to take it on because well, I felt I could do with good marriage advice. Logistical nightmare aside, I had a great time listening to the stories of these four couples (married between 6-50 years). Also, this really beats 1960s Stepford Housewives type marriage prep classes hands down. Some snippets:
“I think the concept of ‘me’ should just disappear if one is planning to settle down.” - Tan Kong Wee
“Love is a decision, not a feeling.” - Raoul Sequeira
“It brings me joy when I see my husband just being himself, all happy and childlike.” - Sharon Han
“She has created so many beautiful memories for me.” - Han Kian Kwang
