Watching people fall in love is beautiful, especially if they are falling in love all over again. Rachel Gaede—who goes by @gachelraede on TikTok—had a chance to see this happen with her parents, so she decided to post their journey on the platform. It all started in 2014 when Gaede was in middle school. She returned from school one fine day, only for her parents to inform her that they were separating. Her parents remained separated throughout the time she was in high school, eventually getting divorced in 2018 when she went to college.

When people asked her why her parents got divorced, she simply said, "They just didn't like each other." She further added, "Not that it didn't suck, but also my parents weren't fighting. They both had these separate lives. It was good to see them doing their own thing and being happy." Things took an unexpected turn for the family in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. Gaede had moved back from college to stay with her mom and sister. They decided that they would strictly quarantine because they wanted to visit her mom's mom, who is in her early nineties. So, if the dad wanted to see his daughters, he would have to strictly quarantine as well.

"This was the first period that forced my parents to be in close quarters, forced to communicate and for a long time," The 24-year-old revealed. During this time, Gaede's dad's mom passed away, so they spent a lot of time with her dad's family. Her parents were still separated, but they had started talking more. "It was nice to see them getting along," the daughter shared. In 2021, Gaede's grandpa from her dad's side had also passed away. "There was such a visceral emphasis on family and forgiveness and valuing your time with each other, "Gaede pointed out. She saw her parents get along better than they ever had.

When Gaede returned from Austin, her dad asked her, "Do you want to see the house I bought with your mom?" Things changed when her dad finally proposed to her mom in December 2022 and they got remarried a year later in 2023. In another video, the daughter shared how her dad proposed to her mom and their entire family. He got rings from everyone, including Gaede and her sister. She revealed that she wears the ring pretty much all the time.

In yet another short clip, the woman warmly wrote, "If you would've told me 10 years ago that my separated parents would be living together again and having the silliest time of their lives, I would've never believed you."

She ended up sharing photos from both weddings her parents had. People took to the comments section to admire the relationship. @txrayu wrote, "I would do anything for this to happen to my parents." @lisak52 commented, "It's actually a great story. They needed time to grow the love they lost. Sometimes, time heals the old wounds. Love that they reconnected." @sarahcroww remarked, "This is so cute. It feels like a romance book. Forced proximity, family grief, I am obsessed." @bespectacledlarper pointed out, "And they're getting married close to Christmas? This is a hallmark Christmas movie waiting to happen."
