Each year around 6,000 people in the USA promise each other “to have and to hold, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.” But not all of them know that love is not just butterflies and passion. It actually requires a lot of hard work and patience to help this unique bond thrive. But we believe that it’s worth the effort, just take a look at the tender photos below.
