real love

We happened to stumble upon the cutest article on Babble recently. It features Wanda and Marvin Brewington of Raleigh, North Carolina who have been married for 47 years. According to Babble, their daughter (and professional photographer extraordinaire), Amber Robinson, encouraged her parents to get glammed up for their annual holiday photos.

And let us tell you, Robinson’s images are BEAUTIFUL and sweet. But even sweeter? Her caption about her parents when she originally published the photos to social media…which quickly went viral.

Grab the tissues.

“These are my parents married for 47 years, they have triumphed over cancer… twice. Have raised two successful daughters. They have been poor together and rich together. They have fed, sheltered, and advised countless lost souls. They love with out expectation and give freely, whatever it is they have to offer. I am SO proud to call them Mom and Dad.”

“They are the epitome of where I strive to be in my own marriage and a constant reminder that a wedding is only a day, but a marriage is forever.”

“My parents talked to us a lot about how difficult life can be but when you know ahead of time it’s not easy, you aren’t so prone to just throwing in the towel at the first threat of trouble.”

“[They] acted like a newlywed couple laughing and giggling for the entire shoot,” Robinson told Babble.

According to the original article, Wanda and Marvin were married in 1968 and have faced many challenges since then: 10 years of infertility, financial hardship, overcoming Marvin’s cancer (twice!), Wanda’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease, and enduring Marvin’s diagnosis and challenges with Multiple Sclerosis.

Just…wow. Real love does exist. Real love can last. Real love fights hard to overcome miserable challenges. Thank you Marvin and Wanda (+ Babble!). You. are. #GOALS.
