Love is a beautifully crazy thing that requires that one take the oddest of risks. Often, one may not know if it will work out or be worth the risk, but they become bold and pave the courage to make things work. A man did the same 27 years ago for the love of his life and the result couldn’t have been more wholesome. A woman shared a video on TikTok of her parents and the most heartwarming summary of their relationship. The video consisted of a text overlay revealing their story along with visuals of the couple as well. The video began with a video of two young people playing on TV and the text overlay read, “These were my parents in their 20s.”

The video captured a young girl and boy with a few others laughing and having an adorable time together. The text overlay further revealed that the duo had met in Japan. “They didn’t speak the same language, so he asked her for English lessons,” the text continued to read. The video then shifted to other visuals which were presumably from recordings taken years ago by the couple themselves. How delightful to know that they must have been playing the same on TV and reminiscing. The text read, “Eventually, she needed to leave and go home to America." Everyone is aware of how relationships work and how long distance or having new opportunities requiring moving out can be big barriers.

Many couples face the dilemma of having to leave their partners for jobs, studies or other plans abroad. In such cases, couples either break up or accept the long-distance fate and get stronger in love together. However, the man decided to do something entirely different, something out of the movies, something that may have seemed ridiculous, bizarre and impulsive at the time. “He left everything he knew to be with her,” the text read. The man’s decision could make or break his relationship and his life as an individual. After taking the breath-taking risk for his partner, the text revealed, “They have been married for 27 years.” Nothing fills the heart more than to know that the risk for love worked out and that the couple made it through their language, distance and other barriers.

The woman shared a follow-up video with a live shot of the couple, now advanced in years but still madly in love with each other. “This is them now,” the text read as the video captured glimpses of two people smitten with each other even after 27 years. The man is seen still fooling with his wife making her laugh as in the previous shots. He is also seen doing all the little things like giving her a bite of his meal, helping her cut her hair and whatnot. Both constantly show the biggest smiles even today just as was captured in the videos years ago. There’s nothing purer than committed love! People were bawling their eyes out in joy for the man whose risk worked out well. @mccxylee said, "Laughing now as the same way they did then." @love.xo.coutrneeee said, "The way your dad looks at her, my heart!"
