What is the most powerful symbol of romance?
Knowledge. Being in tune with your significant other and knowing how to make their heart sing.
What would be your dream romantic gesture?
It seems simple but being whisked away on a surprise trip, just the two of us, would be amazing. If money was no object then it would be a trip somewhere exotic, but I would be completely satisfied with somewhere local just as long as I was with my love.
Share a love story.
My husband and I have been together since we were 17 & 18. We met in Intermediate school - although there was no love connection then - and our paths crossed again as we were finishing high school. As a young couple we celebrated all of the significant milestones - 1 month, 3 months, valentines day, 6 months, 1 year and so on. As our lives together have grown we have been able to share a lot of similar interests and some not so similar but what makes us work is that we prioritise each other and make an effort to celebrate every aspect of our lives together. 14 years down, 7 as husband and wife, 1 house, 2 kids, 2 dogs... then happily ever after.
