This reminds me of this, only it’s all real, and tells the story at the beginning of the happy ending: A Real Life Love Story: this Video a Wedding Present. {I challenge you not to get chills at 2:36 in}

The Proposal.

A great privilege to care for her:

Do marriage vows seem to mean as much today as they used to? If you’ve heard anything about the increase in divorce rates, you may wonder.
Bill & Glad are ignoring the trends. More than ever the vows they made 50 years ago are being tested. In sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, the promise they are keeping is a true example of what love is.

See Bill’s response to the feedback and attention their story has received from around the world. http://youtu.be/LeBH4ELAiKw

    My parents are living a similar story. They've been married for 46 years. My mom was diagnosed with an aggressive form of multiple sclerosis 10 years ago. She requires round-the-clock care and my dad has always been by her side, caring for her every need. It is compassion in its finest form. My mom is amazing for continuing to press on despite her disease and my dad…he's a hero. To witness their love story is to witness true respect and love. I'm blessed to have them for my parents. People like Bill & Glad and my parents bring hope to the rest of us, and help make the world a better place.

    This could be my parents! Married 63 years this August. Mom dedicated her life to Dad and the family until Alzheimers took over. Dad took care of her at home for 11 years until he could not do it any more. Yet he still goes and feeds her 2 meals a day 365 days a year! Thank you for sharing another story about true love and compassion! Beautiful!
