“The love and maturity that we had as a couple from the beginning of the marriage allowed us to know each other and grow emotionally to define our future. It was not easy because the families did not have a good friendship, but with time and patience we were able to unite them and we became an example and the best reference for the younger generations ”, they expressed.
