Marriage is more than just happiness, love, and lust. It also involves many responsibilities between couples and their family. Some of these include the responsibility of the husband and wife to each other, the responsibility of rearing a child to have a bright future, and the responsibility to make the marriage last longer.
Responsibilities are hard to maintain. A lot of husbands and wives file an annulment, separation, or divorce for various reasons. Only a few are lucky enough to have their marriage stand for years. Just like this couple who had just celebrated their 65th anniversary through a photoshoot.
Megan Vaughan, a photographer from Megan Vaughan Photography, shared her heart-warming photoshoot experience. She happened to be the photographer of Ruby and Harold for their 65th anniversary. In fact, she was also the one who took the couple’s 60th-anniversary photos.
Harold is a man full of witty comments and jokes. Sadly, his wife Ruby has been suffering from dementia and it has gotten worse over the years. She already had forgotten Megan who took their 60th anniversary photos. However, Ruby still gave Megan a big hug and accepted the cookies Megan had brought her.
During the photoshoot, Harold was wearing a $15 suit that he bought from a thrift shop. Ruby, even though she has forgotten everything, she still clearly remembered Harold. She even cracked a joke on the shoot saying, “Haven’t I kissed him enough?”
Megan loves what she does for the couple. She loves the way the couple stared at the photos she shot for them. The couple still treasured the framed photograph of the 60th anniversary that Megan had taken.
Although true and long-lasting love is rare nowadays, Harold and Ruby prove that true love still exists.
