Not all marriages are successful but one of the marriage that seems impossible to be successful success, there definitely seems to be a reason for celebration. Maryanne and Tommy’s marriage was the most unaccepted match of their time with people just defying their choices and decision of marriage. But their life journey of staying together as a couple and making it through the course of years makes it all worthwhile!
In the July of 1995, Maryanne and Tommy got married in a white weeding. They both had met at a local training centre and both had down-syndrome. While they both had already dealt with a fine share of rough and harsh people, it was their love for each other that brought the connection. Tommy after dating Maryanne for 18 months knew that she was the one and went on and proposed her with a toy ring. He first asked his mother who approved of the marriage and then proposed to Maryanne. Maryanne’s sisters and family and Tommy’s family all thought that this was a mistake and a stupid marriage. They even question on the mother’s resemblance to get them married. But as the wishes were, Maryanne was prepared for her white marriage as she wanted.
Tommy bought a real ring and on the July of 1995 they both dais “I DO” to each other. The beauty of the bond is that the couple has spent over 22 years together and reside a few houses down to their parents and have lives a much sorted life than they had ever thought. They never had fights and surely lived the bond of marriage that people dream of. Today this couple stands as a symbol of how marriages can be successful and that years of staying with each other shall not bring in difficulties as others say. Their marriage is an example of perfect couples!
