Having realised that it was his 19th wedding anniversary , Alvin Teoh wrote a heart-warming message to his wife Julie Khoo about, “…this crazy thing called marriage.”
He posted a heart warming message about his marriage and their life together on Facebook. The message is filled with many truths on what it takes to build a successful marriage. “Yesterday, our marriage was 19 years old. I’ve been married long enough for Julie to refer me to ‘this old man’… I didn’t think much about it at first, but then I realised; that’s not a title you earn overnight,” he wrote.
The Facebook status went on to explain more about their relationship and what comfort, home and soul mates all meant to him. He described his wife Julie as his “Companion, partner in crime, life-line, comforter, advisor, confession booth, home-builder and mother of his children, the list is long. I suppose the greatest thing about a long marriage is we come to a point where the mask drops off. I am me. And she is she.”
